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.
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).
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.
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.
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.
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.
