Any mentioned boat will do what you descibe. Pick the one you like the best. All the boats are within 500 bucks when its all said and done. Don't let price dectate your choice. You can't go wrong with maravia, aire, or sotar. It has been my experience that the more you like your equipment, the more fun you'll have on the water. So, be confident that you are on the right track, all the boats you mentioned are awesome, and all will out live thier warrenty. So, just go buy the one you like for your own reasons. I have boated with way too many ppl who save $400 bucks and float the river wishing they were in the boat thier hart wanted. just a thought. Happy floating.
