Our boat sleds are custom designed to fit your transom. They add functionality and safety to your boat with minimum weight or drag. We make sleds to fit boats with inboard or outboard motors. They come with multiple handles and attachment points. Allow 12 weeks for delivery.

dropstitch_chartWaterman Unlimited products are fabricated from heavy-duty, military-grade, double wall PVC material strong enough to bounce off rocks, yet comfortable enough for long rides and much safer for victims.

Inside each product, thousands of high-tech “cilia” anchor the deck to the bottom, allowing for superior rigidity as well as custom rockers for better performance.

The 30 percent thicker cilia provide more strength.

Escorting a stand-up paddler or a crew in a canoe can be an exciting and at the same time, a harrowing experience. The boat needs to approach the paddler or paddlers, with extreme caution and precision. The expertise of the boat driver will determine how safe his paddlers are.

With this in mind, Todd Bradley, an experienced waterman skilled in paddling, surfing, and sailing, included over 40 years of his own personal knowledge of close calls and the difficulty of getting in escort boats, created the idea behind his own products.

Agile, flexible, and much safer for open ocean changes.

Also, having friends not only badly hurt, but even killed by boat propellers, led him to design the Waterman Unlimited custom boat sled. These unique patented, one-of-a-kind custom boat safety sleds, are the result of groundbreaking work with inflatable stand-up paddleboards and rescue equipment.

Utilizing Waterman Unlimited proprietary, state-of-the-art inflatable construction, he enlisted the help of international water safety and jet ski rescue experts Brian Keaulana and Archie Kalepa. Bradley included his 43 years of paddling and ocean experience, to redefine and perfect the idea of using the jet ski sled concept for boat sleds.

Custom boat sled for this twin outboard.

Using boat sleds as tools in the rough and unforgiving waters surrounding the Hawaiian Islands.

The Boat sleds create a platform behind the escort vessel for safe, easy access in and out of the water and on to the boat. It lightens the worry of props or keeping the paddlers away from the props on the engine. It also retains the horsepower of the boat, keeping maneuverability to the specifics of the escort boat.

All Waterman Unlimited Boat Sleds and products are fabricated from heavy-duty, high-tech composite fibers that anchor on the deck to the bottom, allowing for superior rigidity under high pressure.

A rough-and-ready surf/paddle/rescue tool that is pliant enough to bounce off rocks, yet still deliver hard product performance and reliability.

All boats are different so building each sled to custom fit the boat’s configuration is important if the sleds are going to effectively perform.
