What raft is this?

Hey boaters, does anyone recognize the year, model, or know anything about this raft? I found it on craigs list but the owners don't know any specifics besides that its a 12 footer. Any info would be great! Thanks.

My thought was the generation older NRS than the one in the 2nd pic. But, I have never seen them with the trapezoid d rings and the ribbed rub strake. The tubes look like first gen NRS though. Does it have a BIN tag on it? If so, the first three letters identify the make and the last two the year. NRS has WSI as the first 3 letters.

It's some Chinese knock off brand. Nrs builds some crappy boats but they wouldn't even design something this stupid. You would have to be 10' tall to use the handles, pull your frame off to get to the valves and the 4 d rings are aftermarket. Save your money for something better.

Chinese knock off for sure.
Big plastic handles probably a Baltic or a early Saturd.

I don't know for sure but I'm guessing NRS never used Halkeys.


I'd take that deal n crawfish, then drill that ole devil in the ass.

Someone obviously added the chafe,d-rings and custom hicks logo.

Knockoff, sure. But if they're only asking a couple hundred for it, and you're desperate to get on the water, and it holds air, and.... 😆

Don't think anyone else really used that color, and to much just doesn't add up to be a real Nrs. There logo doesn't just fall off like that, either.
