Achilles LSI-E Series
The first inflatable tenders made with Achilles high pressure CSM-reinforced AirFirm™ floors are better than ever. The AirFirm™ floor and its fast and easy assembly makes this is a great boat to take on an airplane, your motorhome, trunk, or on top of your ocean-going boat.
The world’s best high-pressure AirFirm™ floor tenders continue to lead the industry in innovation, styling and performance. In 2015 they have added an air keel to our 7’7” LSI-230E, improving the performance of the smallest LSI in our lineup. The lateral seam tube design gives our LSI boats a sleek, clean, modern look and their enhanced polyester core CSM fabric floors are firm and tough.
Our Achilles high pressure, CSM drop-stitch AirFirm™ floors continue to provide the industry’s toughest air decks. When you consider the abuse floors take from scrapes, the sun, salt water, oil and gasoline, it makes sense to have the toughest material available to protect them. And besides being durable, their unique construction consisting of thousands of polyester threads makes these floors remarkably rigid and incredibly lightweight as well.
The result is not only a more stylish tender, but also one that outperforms other air floor models by a wide margin. The combination of Performax tubes engineered to work efficiently with today’s heavier 4-stroke motors, air keel, and a stiffer air floor result in a smoother handling and better performing boat. And the longer waterline resulting from Performax tubes allows these boats to plane even quicker and to stay on a plane at slower speeds.
