The Maxxon Inflatable XPW 240 is a drop-stitch flat float tube that is unusual looking. Once you get on this boat and kick offshore you quickly notice this Hybrid boat is one solid and stable boat. The size of the XPW 240 is almost 8' long and 4' wide and weighs 40 pounds. Right away you can see that this is a large inflatable that can seem tough to move from the truck to the water. First, it packs down into a bag that can be put in the trunk of a car with a lot of room left over. Also, you can simply carry it to the water as it has 2 handles perfectly placed to make it balanced and light when you carry it.
The XPW 240 when on the water is just so comfortable and moves like a dream. I have been in float tubes for a long time they move with such easy it's amazing. So I really thought at first it would take more work and effort to move this boat in the water. I figured I would be tired after struggling to kick this big inflatable in the water. Well, there is nothing further from the truth. These flatboats glide over the surface of the water and have not drag. I remember being in the sling seat float tubes way back when. Those had drag as half your body was in the water, so it stands to reason the less of you in the water the less drag. Of course, besides you not being in the water, there is less tube in the water as well. This boat sits right on top of the water.
The XPW 240 by Maxxon Inflatables is one of the top leave boats on the market. I can safely say you will be happy with a boat like this any questions please ask I am happy to share more details.
