The best made, most popular, small whitewater raft ever made. If you’re talking about taking a raft down the tight and the technical, you’re talking about the Avon Scout. Lightweight, responsive and practically indestructible, the Avon Scout has been the standard on rivers like the Upper Youghiogheny since its inception.

The perfect 7 person paddle raft or a great gear hauler for smaller rivers, the 14ft Avon Adventurer comes standard with two thwarts and multiple attachment points for an optional third. The Polyurethane Bottom Chafer allows the Adventurer to slide over rocks that would stop other rafts in the same conditions.

The Salmon, the Rogue, the Grand Canyon. Those are just three of the rivers Expedition owners claim their Avon was built specifically for. And while we’re not claiming to build this boat specifically for any of these rivers, we will proudly proclaim the Expedition is perfect for all of them…and more.
