10% Off All Accesrrories! Fishermen love it. Paddle boaters love it. Anyone running tight, technical water loves it. The NRS Patriot 142 gets lots of love. Self-bailing, tough, abrasion-resistant, with Made-in-USA material.
  • NRS Patriot Series Rafts give you world-famous NRS quality and performance at a price private boaters love.
  • This boat is patterned similarly to the NRS Expedition 142 and Otter 142; designs especially prized by fishermen.
  • With 21" tubes and a 6'8" width, the Patriot 142 has a sleek profile for tight stream maneuvering, while still having plenty of interior cargo space and flotation for the people and gear you want to haul.
  • Will seat 6-8 paddlers with optional third thwart.
  • Rugged, high-tech XR-Mariner™ material resists UV degradation, abrasion, tearing and puncture.
  • Made in the U.S., XR-Mariner is coated with a proprietary DuPont™ Elvaloy® compound.
  • Elvaloy, an advanced synthetic polymer, is known for its long-term wear properties and flexible, "soft hand" characteristics. Use Clifton Urethane Adhesive, Item # 38700.01, to add foot cups, D-rings and to make any repairs.
  • Bottoms and tops of the side tubes are armored with a double layer of XR-Mariner material for extra wear protection.
  • 12 stainless steel 2" D-rings give plenty of tie-down points for frame and gear.
  • Four comfortable handles make carrying it to the water a breeze.
  • Three main tube air chambers (plus floor and two thwarts) to keep you afloat in the event of an accident.
  • Self-bailing floor with quick-draining holes allows you to leave the bucket at home.
  • Trouble-free Leafield™ C7 Valves ensure easy inflation/deflation of the tubes, thwarts and floor, and the Leafield A6 Pressure Relief Valve protects the floor.
  • The NRS BAT™ (Batten Attachment Thwart system) lets you easily add or remove thwarts to accommodate paddlers or a rowing frame.
  • 5-year retail warranty, 3-year commercial.

  • NRS Patriot 142 Self-Bailing Raft


    Will it be available in red?

    Also, how can bow and stern kick be 31 inches? That is almost a meter - looks like 12" at most.

      Bill, at this time blue is the only color we have to offer. And we measure kick to the top of the tube panel, not the bottom.

    What is the price of this raft? On the main product page it lists a price of $3450, and on the inflatable spec comparison chart it lists a price of $4295.
    What is X- Mariner fabric? PVC, Hypalon? Is this boat welded or glued?

      The price is $3450. You can read about XR-Mariner in the product description; it's coated with DuPont Elvaloy. and the seams are glued in our boat factory, where our Otter and Expedition boats are made.
