Hyside Livery Bucket Raft
This 10' long, commercial-grade Hyside Livery Bucket Raft, has been used privately only a few times per year, yet it is designed to handle the everyday use of rental customers! It's one tough raft in great condition.
This raft design is superb for a family float or a fishing trip. It makes for a wonderful day on whitewater rivers like the Hiawassee, Tuckasegee, Nantahala, French Broad, Pigeon, Clear Creek, and the Nolichucky (run at proper levels). With skilled paddlers, it can handle the Ocoee. Note - this is a BUCKET raft. It is not a self-bailing raft. We really enjoyed the additional fun that a bucket raft provides. If your focus is on bigger water like the Ocoee, there are distinct advantages to the significantly more expensive self-bailing raft!
Hull ID - HYF08013C707. It was built-in March 2007, has been kept in a temperature-controlled garage, 303 treated two to four times per year, and very gently used. We're selling this awesome raft in great condition because our kids are grown, the grandchildren hang out on the lake with us, and we now kayak. Time for another family to have! $2,050 brand new, while this raft is darn near like new for only $875!
