The Marsh Rat

The Ultimate Layout Boat
The Marsh Rat™ is made for the waterfowler! Great for reaching ducks and geese in tucked away, low cover areas where birds feel safe. Its open floor allows a hunter to "get down" achieving a low profile while the wide cockpit allows for fast pull-ups. Constructed from extremely durable plastic, this boat is fast on the water and stable, tracks when paddled, tows great and because it's light can even be loaded on a larger boat.

  • Hideable – hides in low cover
  • Tough – made of durable polyethylene
  • Safe – meets U.S. Coast Guard regulations
