Reckless and infinitely curious, Lara Craft will take you on a journey of discovery to unveil the mysteries of the world, from Alpine creeks to Scandinavian fjords.

Very versatile, she glides effortlessly through calm waters – probably the best of all two-seater packrafts on the market – as well as making short work of technical rivers. Handy and stable, she can cross class III rapids without flinching.

Lara is convertible into a single-seater packraft with the “removable deck configuration”. The 2024 version includes the optional mono-duo system which offers the possibility to choose from a single or double cockpit spraydeck so that you can adapt your boat for each adventure!

Choose the removable spraydeck for up to class II or the fixed spraydeck if you plan to paddle mostly white water and want to stay completely dry!

Recommended for: moderate to hard rivers (class I-III), lakes and coastal navigation. The best choice for those that want a versatile two person packraft that can be paddled on both calm and white water.

Cutting Edge Innovation

Like a catamaran, the double hull shape on our 2024 model is designed to be stable in all conditions, making it easy and enjoyable for beginners.

The long and flat bottom  profile  gives a smooth and fast ride, for paddling on lakes or the sea. A slight rocker at the front cuts through waves or rapids. 

The 2024 version has been lengthened to give a more space inside and maximum paddling comfort. It can also carry lots of gear!

Clean your packraft with ease: an evacuation hole at the back of the spraydeck allows you to remove any water or dirt that gets in during paddling. 

It comes with all our latest improvements: a fast inflation valve, a compact EVA foam backrest and a large inflation bag. As always 100% HF welded, 100% made in France. 

For the first time on a packraft, the mono-duo spraydeck (optional) allows you to change from a one person to a two person spraydeck on the same boat! Even more versatile!

Our boats are made from high tenacity nylon with double TPU coating. For increased resistance, opt for our Armor fabric (optional), which offers incomparable performance.

FAQ

Our Armor fabric is made of high tenacity 420 denier nylon with a double TPU coating. It is extremely tear resistant (+60% compared to the Classic version) and abrasion resistant. It is however heavier than the Classic fabric (+1000 grams for a two-seater).

The removable spraydeck is similar to the fixed version with the difference being that it can be removed completely by opening the zip that holds it in place.

The fact that it can be removed makes the boat more versatile because you can choose between an open or decked version. Choose the open solution when paddling in calm, warm conditions and save up to 1.2 kg by leaving the deck, skirt and coaming rings at home! Use the deck to protect yourself in colder conditions. The zip, although water-repellent (YKK model) lets in a little water, meaning that the removable spraydeck is not completely waterproof. We recommend it up to class II, beyond which it is generally preferable to opt for the fixed spraydeck.

The single-duo removable spraydeck is made up of two distinct spraydecks that can be fitted to the boat. The first spraydeck comes with two cockpits so that two people may paddle in the boat. The second one has one central cockpit so that you can paddle on your own. The positioning of the cockpits is made so that the seating and backrest can be adapted accordingly for a comfortable paddling experience.

Like the standard removable spraydeck, the single-duo is not completely waterproof and should be used accordingly. 

The internal storage system consists of an airproof zipper (Superseal by Tizip) that is welded to the back of your packraft. By opening the zip you have access to the inside of the boat and can store you gear (tent, sleeping bags, backpack…) safely. Think about it like turning your packraft into a giant dry-bag. You have over 200L to store your gear. More than enough space for even those that can’t leave home without the kitchen sink. Zip it up and you are off!

 

The internal storage system is extremely practical for those that want go on an expedition for several days or weeks and need to bring a large quantity of equipment and provisions. During day trips, it is not essential, but makes life easier. 

Please remember that the zipper needs to be treated delicately and cleaned regularly. Because of this is is excluded from our warranty, like other manufacturers. If you zip is not maintained and becomes damaged or dirty it will leak slightly. In conclusion, if you are not someone who is not very careful with their equipment, maybe you should think carefully about adding this option.

You can choose from the following colour schemes:

– Pacific Blue and Black  (Classic Fabric)
