Raptorboats is a fairly new brand that has designed watercraft specifically for the purpose of carp fishing. They tossed the book out when they decided to create the XL Platform because it hardly even looks like a boat. If you’re mostly floating around on a placid lake, you don’t need a cigarette boat that does 100+. No, instead, you need a platform that gives you stability, room and shelter. The Platform XL does just that and even has room for a tent. Put out a couple chairs, throw your feet over the edge and enjoy your time on the lake. It’s a European company that ships all over the other side of the pond, but you’ll have to get in touch to get one sent over here. Pricing starts at about $2,600 not including shipping.
