The New and Improved Sea Eagle 437ps PaddleSki Inflatable Catamaran-Kayak-Boat is here! It’s a great improvement over the old 435ps PaddleSki. The design changes of this amazing boat take it to a whole new level of fun and excitement! You can do it all with the boat: paddle, motor, fish, sail, and camp.
The improved features of the all-new Sea Eagle 437ps PaddleSki:
- Redesigned hull with five separate, air chambers for added safety
- New rigid, high-pressure, inflatable drop-stitch floor
- Improved swivel seats
- Custom removable transom
- Universal Scotty Mounting Pads for attaching accessories
- Ability to accept up to a 6 HP gas motor
- Canopy Attachment System for the optional Sun & Rain Canopy
- And so much more that you’ll discover in the specification and feature sections below
The Sea Eagle 437ps PaddleSki is a hybrid inflatable boat that offers amazing versatility! This unique cross between an inflatable catamaran, an inflatable kayak with drop-stitch technology, and a motorboat with the benefits of each all-in-one package that is remarkably stable, fast, rigid, and rugged.
The PaddleSki’s catamaran hull design features two widely spaced inflatable tubes that allow it to glide through the water with minimal resistance while also providing a solid well-balanced hull.
The Sea Eagle 437ps PaddleSki offers incredible advantages and it is inflatable too! It folds down to a fraction of its inflated size making it a breeze to transport and store. No bulky expensive roof racks are needed when taking this boat to the water. No need for a trailer either.
Can You Row in the Sea Eagle 437ps PaddleSki?
I spoke with Sea Eagle to see if the new 437ps PaddleSki works with their QuikRow Kit. Unfortunately, they don’t know. Their response, “We are not sure if it will work with the QuikRow because the new model has not been tested for use with the QuikRow as of yet.”
The old 435ps PaddleSki was not only compatible they sold discounted Sea Eagle 435ps PaddleSki QuikRow 4-in-1 package. Hopefully, the 437ps PaddleSki will be compatible with the QuikRow Kit too.
I’ll let you know what I find out as new tests are done.

Key Features of the Sea Eagle 437ps PaddleSki
Catamaran Kayak Hull Design
A unique design feature of the PaddleSki is its catamaran-style hull with widely spaced inflatable tubes that allows the center cockpit floor to ride 4″ above the waterline. This greatly reduces drag on the water making it faster and well-balanced.
5 Safety Air Chambers
The 437ps PaddleSki has 5 separate air chambers for added safety. In the highly unlikely chance that one of the chambers fails, this boat will easily remain afloat to ensure your safety and anyone else with you.
Rigid, High-Pressure, Inflatable Floor
The new rigid, high-pressure, inflatable drop-stitch floor is created by joining the top and bottom fabric layers with tens of thousands of high-tensile strength threads. This design allows the floor to be inflated up to 10 psi which provides stability, buoyancy, and a rigid floor stable enough to stand on. Great for fishing!
Custom Removable Transom
The custom removable transom improves storability and portability by allowing a smaller profile fold.
Attach Up To A 6 HP Gas Motor
The transom provides the ability to attach an electric motor or gas motor up to 6 HP. You can reach speeds up to 16 mph with the pictured Honda 5S that is part of the Honda Motor Package.
Canopy Attachment System
The PaddleSki has a canopy attachment system for attaching the optional Sun & Rain Canopy.

Optional Accessories for the Sea Eagle 437ps PaddleSki
Here are some optional accessories worth considering. Some of these should be included in the discount packages.
I had a conversation with Sea Eagle and was told that discount packages may change in the future if certain accessories become popular. Maybe they’ll include some of the following accessories in the future.
AB30 7’10” Four-Part Paddle
Get a second Sea Eagle AB30 7’10” four-part paddle. I’m not sure why the discount packages don’t have two paddles. You’ll probably want a second for when you are tandem paddling.
BP12 Single Stage Electric Pump with Battery
The BP12 Single Stage Electric Pump can make inflation even easier. There two versions of the pump with or without the battery. The one you need will depend on where you’ll be pumping up your PaddleSki.
Sun and Rain Canopy
When out on the water, it’s nice to have shade from the sun and protection from the rain. The 437ps PaddleSki comes preinstalled with the Canopy Attachment System for the optional Sun & Rain Canopy. When not in use the canopy easily folds down and out of the way.
Scotty accessories are incredibly popular. Fishing rod holders, cup holders, Go Pro mounts, mounts for electronics, and more… Scotty has you covered. Just attach your desired accessory to one of the two Universal Scotty Mounting Pads.
If Sea Eagle doesn’t carry the Scotty accessory you’re looking for OutdoorPlay will.
Watersnake Venom SX 34lb Thrust Electric Motor
If you want a PaddleSki with a trolling motor, you’ll save money buying the Watersnake Motor Package.
If you’re buying the Honda Motor Package, you might have a need for the Watersnake Venom SX 34lb Thrust Electric Motor too.
Minn Kota Trolling Motor Power Center
If you plan to use an electric motor with your PaddleSki, I’d recommend the Minn Kota Trolling Motor Power Center. The Power Center fits 24 and 27-size batteries and allows easy access to external battery terminals without the need to open the box to access the battery directly.
The Power Center includes:
- LED battery meter display
- Two 12-volt cigarette lighter style plugs for accessories
- Two manual reset circuit breakers. A 15 amp for the accessory plugs and a 60 amp for the trolling motor.
Sea Eagle EZ-Cart
If you are by yourself or have to go far to get to your put-in, a Sea Eagle EZ-Cart will be of great help.
