Duno, mate, never seen it here.

The PVC quality will be probably the same as for most of the boats, the difference will be the welding or gluing technology.

Many mode boats are welded, pretty time proof, but some bits are glued (handles, rubber strips, rings etc).

When you receive your boat, take a look at the joints around to see I any glue traces, will give you a hint if it glued or welded.

I think if you take proper care of your boat, it will outlast many top quality ones that are left neglected

Just looked at the web site.
3 years warranty for glued parts. Well, the price is good. I hope with a good care taken the boat will last more than 1 season.

Update:
The main components are welded to the connection settings of high-frequency current, with the application of a logo Kolibri. This technology enables the bond strength of 20 - 30% and above.

Very good price, congrats

As I said, if you get a licence, you can easily get a 10 HP on eBay and enjoy your summer time. The prices for 5 HP and 10 HP are not far away, but you will have a nice piece of kit for a very good price.

Sure, the money can be an issue.

You can always stick a 5hp on it, and get your ticket the next year, with a better experience. You may decide you go for size up in boat and in engine
