If you need a Cargo Fly please visit our Build Options page. However, the Explorer 42 cannot be fitted with a spray deck or self bailing floor due to the configuration for two paddlers.

The Explorer 42 is great option for bringing the kids or dogs! The Explorer 42 is designed with the extended stern and upturned bow as our Alpacka Raft series, but with additional length to accommodate an extra person or a lot of extra gear. Lighter overall than two standard packrafts and with a faster hull speed, the Explorer 42 is an ideal option for pairs on long expeditions, especially when combined with our Shred-Apart paddle that converts from a kayak paddle into two canoe paddles.  Although not as maneuverable as our Alpacka Raft series or as large as the Alpacka Gnu, the Explorer 42 is whitewater capable up to Class III with experienced paddlers. Please note that the Explorer 42 can not be fitted with a spray deck or self bailing floor due to the configuration for two paddlers.
