What customers say about "Key Specs"
Intex Mariner 3 Boat Set
  • I've got the Mariner 3 version and it's great for 1 person all day on the water without being cramped if you limit what you bring along (didn't take more than a single outing to realize a full-size cooler and multiple tackle boxes took up too much space).
  • Carries two adults and a bit of personal gear quite comfortably. Three hobbits would probably fit but not three full size people unless you are extremely good friends.
  • Took it out last weekend for two days on the river with one other person. Overall, raft performed well.
  • Easy to use even for a single person. Looking to make some upgrades!
  • I am glad that I purchased this boat instead of Mariner 4 since I usually go out fishing by myself - I can load this boat easily to the water by myself.
Intex Mariner 4 Inflatable Raft River/Lake Dinghy Boat Set & Motor Mount Kit
  • This boat is awesome! Very robust, very versatile and just well made and thought out. My family and I have been out in it many times and have a great time every time.
  • These boat is bigger than I expected but just prefect. Inflats fast, very strong and a solid bottom. Very impressed.
  • This was a hit on my boyfriends last fishing trip!! It was durable, can fit at least two children and two adults, and with the motor gets you all over the lake!!
  • If you are wondering if you get this biat you should , the sevylor boat cant hold a caandle to this one.
  • It can hold 3 adults and gear (up to 880 lb) though mine is a bit less because of the weight of the hardwood flooring!

What customers say about "Construction"
Intex Mariner 3 Boat Set
  • So, this boat is made of very heavy duty PVC/Vinyl/Canvas type material. The Boston style valves are exactly what is needed, and they work great.
  • It has rubbed and scraped rocks and tree branches, but the material had held up very well.
  • I could lift it easily and the material seems strong enough. Not bad for the price. Enjoy!
  • Overall, I am thrilled with the Mariner 3 Boat Set. Much thought and rugged materials were put into it. I highly recommend it.
  • Very thick material. When it's fully inflated, it feels almost exactly like a white water rafting tube.
Intex Mariner 4 Inflatable Raft River/Lake Dinghy Boat Set & Motor Mount Kit
  • Boat is nice and sturdy and plenty big for what I wanted.
  • Sturdy and easy to assemble. It's easy to carry without a motor, but add motor and battery and it's very heavy.
  • The quality of this unit is much better than expected, and worked out perfectly out on the river.
  • The materials appear to be very strong and "heavy duty," while taking into account the low cost. I do agree with many other reviews with respect to the weight, however, you need to expect additional weight will be added to an inflatable boat made from good quality material.
  • My only complaint is that the bottom of the boat could have been made of stronger material.

What customers say about "Features"
Intex Mariner 3 Boat Set
  • Another nice feature that sets this raft apart is the inclusion of carrying handles fore and aft. It is so much easier to carry the raft by the handles than trying to put your arms around it like with some other rafts.
  • With all that the raft still sits well up in the water and handles just fine, even in decent sized waves.
  • The seats this raft comes with are quite nice. They are comfortable and plenty large.
  • The oars are securely locked using the built-in mechanism and they unsnap for easier storage.
  • The oars do a good job, but we cracked the plastic bit that holds the two oar handle halves together. It still works, just wish they were stronger.
Intex Mariner 4 Inflatable Raft River/Lake Dinghy Boat Set & Motor Mount Kit
  • Inflation/deflation works well with the large volume pump that comes with it. I highly recommend it and would buy again!
  • The new seat design is good and it prevents them from squeaking like the old ones could.
  • Everything was great when I first inflated it. The Keil is leaking and won't hold air for very long. The four chambers leak as well.
  • There are only two issues i have with this boat, one would be the inflatable seats it comes with, they sit a bit low for my tastes but are more than serviceable.
  • The removable hard floor is slippery and will scootch away and fold up if you try to get your footing on it.
