No personal experience but done some google searching over breakfast which turns up a snippet here and there.

Company was based in Washington and started around 2001 but went bankrupt around 2011/2012 hence website a dead link. Several ranges including the cat (Zapcat) style hulls.

Glued PVC construction with European fabric and most likely made in China.

Claim their designs were based on South African rescue boats.

Are you looking at the cat type?

What Fenlander said is accurate.

I tested one back in about 2007. Seemed to be of reasonable quality for occasional recreational use, but a world of difference is build quality between it and the mainline South African manfacturers such as Gemini, Caesar and Aquarius. The extra cost of those brands will more than pay for itself in the longevity of the product.

I believe the same products have also been marketed under the brand name of xtreme inflatables.
