    In order to make your mark on the world, you often have to make a voyage from the familiar into far off places where few have ventured or even dared. These journeys are necessary to discover our true selves and grow our knowledge of the world around us. We have developed a platform that will help you take that journey. A BOTE like no other, that will take you farther, faster than anything we have ever created.

    We call it Rover.

    Rover evolved from the most innovative paddle boards on the planet, and was designed as a paddle board first. It’s channeled, Deep-V nose design quietly slices through the water and paddles efficiently through a variety of water conditions.


  • Modular Rac System

    Rover’s modular Rac Receiver System allow you to configure rover in a multitude of configurations by simply sliding the Rac of your choosing into the receiver in a matter of seconds. No tools required.

    Paddle to Power

    It’s a stand up paddle board. It’s a microskiff. It’s everything in between. No matter what you call it, one thing’s for sure, it’s a BOTE. The Rover’s revolutionary modular Racs allow you to go from paddle to power in seconds.

    Power Up

    The Moto Rac is the core feature of the Rover. It is the single accessory that makes the leap from paddle to power. By simply inserting the Moto Rac into the integrated receivers, your rover is ready to ride. The Moto Rac is engineered with 2 rod holders and two 1 gallon Rotopax™ mounts.

    Grab On!

    A newly engineered feature for the Rover is the Grab Rac. Insert into any of the Rac Receivers to further enhance your adventure. Use it as support while running or as you move around the deck. Nylon molle loops are riveted to the marine grade aluminum risers to allow for multiple gear attachment points. The BVA foam hook caddy will keep your go-to flies and lures easily accessible.

    ConnexSUP® Plugs

    Connect all your accessories: cameras, straps, coolers, GPS, fish finders, smart phones, PFD’s, or whatever you can imagine with this simple solution that has reinvented the way we connect to our sport.

    Installed throughout the Rover’s deck, the ConnexSUP plugs are inspired by the need for a simple solution to mounting an overwhelming number of accessories being offered in the marketplace. The system is made of ballistic strength reinforced injection molded polycarbonate and uses a universal base that hosts any number of attachments that allow you to fully customize your Rover and get the most out of your equipment.

    It’s a Bear

    The most stable board we’ve ever created with a capacity up to 500 lbs, you can walk from rail to rail and nose to tail while maintaining complete control. Designed with your gear in mind, Rover has a place for everything.

    Honeycore Construction

    We’ve taken traditional epoxy fiberglass construction to the next level with our new Honeycore construction which features advanced composites that provide Rover with strength like nothing you’ve ever seen before. While Rover is heavier than a traditional paddle board, the additional weight, due to this rock-solid construction method, actually contributes to a better ride while under power.

    Get Some

    With a recommended maximum 6 HP, Four Stroke, Short Shaft (15") outboard, Rover will run like a scalded dog reaching speeds of 16 miles per hour getting you where you want to be faster than any BOTE we’ve ever made.

    Going the Distance

    The Rover has a large range, allowing you to get to places you never thought possible on a paddle board. The Moto Rac is equipped with mounting points to add additional water, gasoline or first aid kits using the Rotopax™ Mounting System. Extend your range by hundreds of miles by adding additional Rotopax™.

    Sweet Spot

    When under power, the Rover is designed to lift the nose out of the water which provides a smoother ride and tighter turning.

    Take a load off

    Strap in your favorite cooler to use as a seat (and ice box) giving you a comfy sitting position as you cruise. We prefer to use a Bucket Rac, which has extra rod holders and a KULA 5 cooler as the seat/ice box.

    Get Up. Stand Up.

    Use a tiller extension to stand up while you run giving you a top down view of your surroundings and leave the back deck open for plenty of room to move around while you fish.

    Shallowest of Shallows

    With an extremely shallow draft, the Rover can practically float in spit. Requiring only inches of water you can access places no regular boat would dare venture.

    Like Butter

    While paddling, the Rover lies down flat and allows the Deep-V nose to do it’s thing, carve through the water with silent efficiency. With the motor trimmed up, Rover will float in 3” of water with 220lb load (Person, Gear, and Motor).

    Stealth Mode

    Once you’ve arrived at your destination, Rover can seamlessly transform into a silent stalker. Creep into the shallowest of sloughs using the included carbon fiber paddle or pole your way with the foot end of a Sandspear while making your way further off the grid.



    Rover has benefited from BOTE’s years of experience as a leading innovator of paddle craft and features a channeled, Deep-V nose design to efficiently slice through the water. The included Carbon/Fiberglass Axe Edge Adjustable Paddle–one of the lightest, strongest adjustable paddles on the market–allows you to paddle further with less fatigue. Equipped with a Paddle Sheath in the nose of the board, quickly sheath your paddle to free up your hands for casting or taking a sip of that cold one.



    The BOTE vertebrae push pole rollers are the perfect way to stow your Sandspear or YakAttack ParkNPole along the rail of the rover. The vertebrae simply screw into the offset ConnexSUP attachment points along either rail and the Sandspear or ParkNPole nestles in between them.

    Power-pole® Micro™

    (Sold Separately)

    The Power Pole® Micro™ wireless shallow water anchor system is a fisherman’s best friend. Slide up on your fishing spot in dead silence and use the anchor to keep your position regardless of current or wind. Rover has mounting points for the Micro™ on both sides of the board. BOTE’s Sandspear is interchangeable with the Power-Pole® Micro™ anchor.

    Get’n Round

    When it comes to transporting your Rover, you’ve got options. Not only does it fit in your garage, but you can load it in the back of your truck, load it on roof racks or tow it with a trailer. Wheel Racs will get Rover from truck to shore with ease.

    Poppin’ Wheelies

    After a long day adventuring on the water it would be nice to have an easy way to transport your Rover back to your vehicle or storage area. Enter the Wheel Rac. Easily slip the Wheel Rac into the hull receivers and rock & roll. With the oversized balloon tires, the rover will glide over almost any terrain with minimal effort.
