VHF handheld radios

One of the most important requirements when out on an inflatable boat is the VHF radio. Safety and communication are paramount when you are on the water, and having a reliable VHF radio can make all the difference in an emergency or simply for staying in touch with other boaters. Whether you are navigating unfamiliar waters, coordinating with other vessels, or monitoring weather updates, a VHF radio is an essential piece of equipment for any inflatable boat enthusiast.

In our Facebook group, the topic of VHF radios gets talked about a lot. Members frequently share their experiences, tips, and recommendations about the best VHF radios for different types of boating activities. This community-driven advice is invaluable, as it comes from fellow boaters who have firsthand experience with various models and brands. If you are not already a member, we highly encourage you to join the conversation and tap into this wealth of knowledge.
