The Gumotex Alfonso is a small inflatable boat designed specifically for anglers and fishing. It can carry up to 3 people and is suitable for trips on the lakes, reservoirs, ponds and rivers. The boat is very stable and it holds a forward course easily. The transom on the stern of the boat is equipped with two rod holders and can be mounted with either an electric or small petrol motor up to 5hp. Without the engine it can be used with classic canoe paddles or oars.
The Alfonso features 3 x padded seat slates, this raised seating position makes the Alfonso extremely comfortable for extended fishing trips. All seat slates have fix points for rod holders and one is supplied as standard. 4 Additional Railblaza starport mounts are also fitted - 2 to each side of the boat. A solid floor board is also supplied providing increased stability when standing to cast and protects the hull when landing fish.
The motor used with the transom must have a short shaft and a maximum weight of 28 kg.

Gumotex Inflatable Kayak Construction
The Gumotex Alfonso is constructed from Nitrilon® material. This is a lighter version of the material used in rigid inflatable boats (RIBs) construction. Nitrilon® is manufactured in-house by Gumotex allowing for complete control over product quality.
- High strength Polyester (PES) fibre
- An outer layer of synthetic rubber
- Inner layer of a mixture based on natural rubber
The material is highly resistant to abrasion, aging and UV with a minimum tensile strength (1) of 3000/3000 N (sample 20 x 5 cm). This makes Nitrilon fabric an excellent material for the construction of inflatable watercraft.
Gumotex Manufacturing Process
Gumotex have been producing high quality inflatable products in the Czech Republic for over 60 years using unique materials and technologies, making Gumotex inflatables some of the very best in the world!
- Each Gumotex inflatable kayak/canoe/boat/raft is manufactured by hand in the Czech Republic.
- After the materials have been assembled and vulcanised, each & every boat is pressure tested and left inflated for 12 hours.
- After final assembly they are inflated for a further 6 hours before having a final inspection and being prepared for packaging.
This means that each Gumotex Inflatable has been tested under inflatation twice before it is packaged! Such stringent testing and quality control has led to Gumotex being accredited with ISO9001 Quality Assured Management Systems, and this means that you can have complete confidence in the quality of your Gumotex product as soon as you open the box!
Gumotex do not use PVC in any of their boats - PVC products release Phthalates into the environment and this substance has a negative effect on human and environmental health.
