The result of a timely tryst between a highly utilitarian father and a swiss army-like mother, the Zeppelin is the most versatile kayak in the BOTE waters.

The Bote Zeppelin features a self-draining hull, removable floor chamber, and optional second seat differentiate the Zeppelin from its stablemates. An inflatable watership that welcomes the individual and tandem alike. NOW WITH TWO SEATS! The Zeppelin Aero 12'6" now comes standard with two seats for a tandem configuration.


  • TANDEM COMPATIBLE: Want an extra rider to tag along? Simply add an extra Aero Paddle Seat to the Zeppelin to take it from solo kayak to tandem kayak in seconds.
  • HIGH & DRY: The elevated design of the Aero Paddle Seat and self-bailing floor of the Zeppelin keeps you comfortable and dry during your long awaited time on the water.
  • FAMILY FRIENDLY: With a high capacity and tandem capabilities, the Zeppelin Aero is a great option for the whole family to spend time on the water together.
  • MADE WITH AEROBOTE: Constructed with our Aero Technology™ to ensure peak rigidity and performance.
  • MAGNEPOD™ COMPATIBLE: The MAGNEPOD™ magnetic base is a revolutionary, tool-less drink retention system that makes securing your BOTE magnetic drinkware a snap.
  • LIGHTWEIGHT & PORTABLE: AeroBOTE construction allows BOTE inflatable kayaks to transform from folded up travel bag into a fully functional kayak in minutes, allowing for superior ease of transportation and storage.
  • SLIDE-IN RAC RECEIVERS: New slide-in Rac Receivers make it even quicker to get out on the water with your favorite accessories.
  • BUCKET RAC COMPATIBLE: Two rac receivers in the rear of the Zeppelin allows for a Bucket Rac to be installed when in solo configuration.
  • SELF-DRAINING COCKPIT: Utilizing gravity and momentum the kayak can rid of unwanted water by draining through the stern.

  • BUNGEES: Adjustable Bungee Straps provide quick and easy storage of extra gear.
  • COOLER TIE-DOWN POINTS: Tie down points on the deck pad are perfect for lashing down a cooler (or other gear).
  • INFLATE/DEFLATE PORT: Compatible with high pressure pumps capable of connecting to HR valves.
  • BVA DECK PAD: The BVA multi-textured deck pad is heat sealed to shed water and provides plenty of cushion to reduce fatigue and anti-slip traction.
