WHO IS WILLIAM

Because the best adventures need to be shared. William Shakes Beer is our two seater packraft. Weighing less than 4 kilos, he will make no trouble in your backpack.

Best suited for calm rivers, lakes and oastal paddling, William will be at your side.

Available in different colour choices and customisable on demand.

Technical specifications

All our packrafts are designed, manufactured and tested in France from A to Z in our workshop in the Drôme valley, using the best materials possible.

CONSTRUCTION
We don't use a drop of glue to stick our boats together: each piece of fabric is completely welded to the rest using high frequency welding, a technology capable of giving the best results in terms of strength and durability. Each weld is actually stronger than the fabric itself.

Tri-axial reinforcements in 210 denier nylon are welded all around the interior of the packraft to better distribute the forces on the boat and guaranty a strong structure.

MATERIALS

Dans sa version Classique, Lara est constituée de nylon 210 deniers haute ténacité avec double enduction TPU pour les tubes et de nylon 840 deniers avec double enduction TPU, extrêmement résistant à l’abrasion, pour le sol.

Dans sa version Armor, Lara est constituée de nylon 420 deniers haute ténacité avec double enduction TPU pour les tubes et de nylon 840 deniers avec double enduction TPU, extrêmement résistant à l’abrasion, pour le sol.

Our packrafts are fitted with D7 Leafield valves, the most robust and durable valve around. The D7 therefore has a lifetime warranty.

We use Superseal Tizip's™ for the optional internal storage system as well as stainless steel buckles for the tie downs. Our cushions come with one way, low profile, valves that have a quick deflation tab.

William in Action

How to choose my packraft?

We build your packrafts to your design and therefore have limited stock. Our lead time is currently around five months but is subjected to the volume of orders. If you would like to find out the exact delay, please give us a call. In any case, if you have a trip or expedition coming up with a cut-off date, it's best to order as early as possible!

Available colours to choose from:
– Jaune & Noir
– Gris & Noir
- Camouflage ( 50€ surcharge applicable)

It is also possible to completely customise the look of your boat, by adding a 50€ surcharge. Until our e-shop is modified, please state your desired colours in the comments when you order.

Le système de stockage interne consiste en un zip étanche à l’air et à l’eau (modèle Superseal de la marque allemande Tizip™), soudé au tube central arrière de votre packraft. Lorsque vous ouvrez le zip, vous accédez à l’intérieur des tubes de votre bateau, à savoir la partie gonflée. Vous pouvez ainsi stocker votre matériel (tente, sac de couchage, petit sac à dos…) à l’abri, tout en libérant de la place sur le packraft. Le volume total est d’environ 220L sur un modèle monoplace, largement assez pour stocker votre matériel. Vous refermez ensuite le Tizip, gonflez votre bateau et le tour est joué.

The internal storage system is extremely useful for those that need that extra space during long expeditions, where it is important to carry everything on a self sustained trip. It can also be great if you can't be bothered to tie your bag to the cargo rings on the front. Just zip everything up and you are off.

A noter que le Tizip nécessite en entretien régulier et doit être traité avec soin. Il est par ailleurs exclu de la garantie, comme chez les autres fabricants de packrafts. En cas de défaillance (zip abîmé, sable ou boue incrustée dans la fermeture éclair…), votre bateau va se mettre à fuir légèrement. En conclusion, si la délicatesse n’est pas votre fort, posez-vous la question de savoir si vous en aurez l’utilité ou non avant de choisir cette option !
