New Odyssey Panel Floor for 2012!

The Odyssey Panel Floor is a New addition to the Walker Bay line for 2012. Like the other Odyssey boats, space was maximized by widening the bow leaving room for the fuel tank to be fit up front. This aids with earlier planing and produces a better ride over chop. The transom and seat have an “RTM” (Resin Transfer Molding) foam core which makes them stiffer and lighter.  The transom has lifting handles built in and a trim tab to aid in planing. The floor on the Odyssey Panel floor is easy to install and very stiff giving the feel of a RIB boat with the convenience of a roll-up.


Available in both German Heytex PVC, or ORCA CSM fabric.

High Pressure Inflatable V-Hull

Constructed from two layers of durable copolymer polyester fabric, joined inside by thousands of drop stitch fibers and inflates to form a lightweight rigid deck, Odyssey’s Air Floor Series offers performance, combined with effortless setup and takedown-just inflate and go, deflate and stow.


Tube Options

Walker Bay is one of the only inflatable boat manufacturers in the world to offer a choice in fabric options: ORCA CSM or PVC. Built to last, both fabrics offer durable seams using a 3 layer process with all seams internally and externally butted for maximum reliability. The answer to which fabric should you choose lies in what you are looking for in an inflatable.

If price isn’t a concern, ORCA CSM is an excellent choice for warmer climates or the avid boater. Casual boaters or those who live in milder climates can reap the economical benefits of a PVC boat. Regardless of your choice, a boat cover is strongly recommended as it will protect your tube and prolong the lifespan of your boat.


Custom Features

  • Rounded Tube Ends offer more internal space versus traditional pointed tubes as there is greater length in the cockpit than in tube end
  • Large diameter multi-chamber tubes provide a safer, drier ride
  • Premium one-way valves

Rigid but collapsible floor boards, inflatable keel

The Odyssey Panel Floor boats are designed for a safe, dry, comfortable ride. The floor boards are easy to install and create a boat that feels like a RIB but has the convenience of a roll-up.  The inflatable keel creates a V-Hull which cuts through rough chop and combines with the floor to offer stability and unparalleled performance.

Safe, Dry and Comfortable

All Odyssey Inflatables are built using large diameter 17”-18” multi-chamber tubes which provide a safer, drier ride. Webbing handles are specifically placed for improved boating safety and oars are externally mounted so they are available and ready to use when you need them.
