This is a C Condition Avon Scout. The Avon Scout is an iconic, cherished hypalon raft used around the world. As Avon is no longer in business, the Avon Scout is a highly sought after raft. Sierra South inherited these rafts with the purchase of Kern River Tours in 2019. They are not a part of our fleet as they don’t match our existing boats. We expect these rafts to sell quickly so please inquire if you are interested!
This used C Condition Avon Scout is grey. C condition rafts could have some missing handles, wear marks, a few patches, and may leak; however, these boats have lots of rivers left to run. For all Scouts the D-Rings may need to be repaired or replaced and the raft’s fenders may have cosmetic delamination. This boat’s condition rating is listed on the additional information tab. Our full rating system can be viewed on our Consignment Program Information page. Will note major issues, but minor and cosmetic issues may not be listed. Please Contact Us if you have questions about a specific boat.
Avon Light Grey No Name
This Scout is in fair condition. The raft has all handles, with two footcups at the bow. There is a patch inside the cockpit of the stern that is leaking. The leak is fast enough that it will need to be replaced before taking it on the river. There is slight delamination of the fender that surrounds the raft, there is no Perimeter Line, and contains six patches. This Scout does not contain D-rings, but rather webbing loops that can be used to attach a Perimeter Line. This raft was manufactured in 1997.
