Picked up this boat at our local Costco. Been eyeing it for awhile but had no idea it would drop so low. There were two more left along with display in the Huntsville, AL store. Good luck!

Great deal assuming you can find it in stock at your local CostCo B&M, here is a copy/paste from the web site in case it disappears:

Quote :
Item 1046995

The Hydro-Force™ Mirovia Pro by Bestway® is a highly capable inflatable boat and suitable for the most demanding activities. Constructed of heavy grade PVC, the Mirovia Pro has superior strength and can survive extreme nautical conditions. The extra-tough strake acts as a shock absorber if the boat comes into contact with rocks or other hazards, protecting it from impact and friction damage. Add to this the fixed buckle for an external outboard motor gas tank (motor and gas tank not included) and the high pressure keel make this a highly versatile, functional and capable boat that holds its own at great value.

The marine grade aluminum floorboards provide a non-slip surface and are extra rigid, stable and durable. The Mirovia Pro has 2 possible positions for the bench seat so you can choose which one is the most convenient for your activity. A high pressure inflatable keel combined with rigid floorboards offers better control than a flat floor model, making it more directionally stable under power and enables it to row more precisely. The 3 chamber construction with low profile valve and extended tail tubes give this Mirovia Pro model better buoyancy and stability with or without an outboard on the back.

Kit Includes:

Mirovia 130 Inch Inflatable Boat
33 ft. (10 m) Towrope
2 - 64 in. (1.62 m) Aluminum Oars
Air Hammer™ Manual Inflation Pump with Pressure Gauge
Repair Kit
Carry Bag
Outboard Motor and Gas Tank Not Included

Features:

Fits Up to 4 Adult Riders
Heavy PVC Construction
3 Chamber Construction with Low Profile Valve and Extended Tail Tube for Stability

Aluminum Oars are Sectional, and Can be Taken Apart for Storage / Transport
Includes 33 ft Tow Rope
Metal Steel Tow Ring
Metal Motor Mount for an Outboard Motor (up to 15 HP) with Fixed Buckle for a Gas Tank (Outboard Motor and Gas Tank Not Included)

Specifications:

Capacity: 1,411 lbs. Total Combined Weight, Riders, Accessories and Cargo

Wow this is a steal. I bought one last year for around $400 (display item). I've been around lakes with my wife and son and it's incredible fun. You can get it setup on your own in 20-30 minutes. I used a $5 bed inflator to speed up the inflation process and then used the hand pump to get it up to pressure.

I would definitely recommend. You can get an electric motor or cheap gas motor for it but the oars are also pretty effective if you want to Row.

I could see this being useful for ship-to-shore but what else? The seating looks very high for anything but a short journey in calm water.

Lakes, ponds, rivers. It's transportable. I would for sure get one at that price. We have a camper and have to leave our boat behind, this would be great. I've never seen them in AZ

Looks like this price may be specific to this store [costco97.com].

"Prices that end in .97 are special, limited-time deals created by local Costco store managers at their discretion – typically to get rid of slow-selling or seasonal merchandise. These clearance prices are local to that one store only, although they could be on clearance at other stores as well."

Called Costco. There are none available in northern California. 3 available in southern California. Call your local warehouse to find the closest warehouse to you that has it in stock.

I picked up one in Richmond CA. It was a display. They gave it to me for $300. Also, it is missing the oar and the pump. I'm excited to use it. Got to find a pump... I'll be mounting a motor so I don't need the other oar.

Tender.

Call it a "Tender" makes it sound much more important than Dinghy

All the more reason to have oars; with a motor you tend to get further out in the water before it craps out.

Good point. Hmm. I need to inflate this today to figure out if it all works. Might return it.
