Freedom says it all! No more long commutes to the lake in rush hour traffic. Go anywhere and bring along your family and friends, plus all their gear.
The Wipline float construction follows Wipaire's strict guidelines with special attention to detail. The largest baggage hatchs in the business are standard on Wipline 8000 Floats. In fact each float features two hatches. The flat top deck area promotes crew and passenger safety. The rugged dual main gear assembly is well suited for paved or grass strips. The nose gear features a full-caster nose wheel mounted on a composite nose spring, which retracts into the float nose to provide a dock bumper.
The Wipline 8000 float was designed using the latest computer aided design technology, making replacement parts a perfect fit and allowing the 8000 to be light, yet still north country rugged.
