The Raptor platform boat is a combo that makes a lot of people very happy.
Every now and then when out fishing, you get real sleepy. It's all right to admit it. It happens to the best of us.
Until now, our only option would be to head to shore and either sleep in your vehicle, pitch a tent or go find a bed and rest up.
Now, thanks to Raptor Boats, a boat-and-tent combo actually exists.
Hailing from the Netherlands, Raptor Boats have created an actual fishing platform that is functional enough to fish from, but at the same time, pitch a tent to sleep. Just imagine the all-nighter you could pull fishing for catfish!
All jokes aside, this on-the-go houseboat could be pretty functional at the cabin, or for a weekend getaway, just so long as a portage boat is near to get you back onto dry land if you needed it.
According to Raptor's Facebook page, interest in their platform boat has surpassed what they can handle. Current lead times for any of their models are several months out. As far as pricing goes, the small model is about $1,195, followed by the mid-tier option at $1,895, then the XL version, which is the one featured with the tent, at $2,495.
So what do you think? If these boats make their way to America with some regularity, are you interested?
