Vetus ramps up inflatable products range to meet rising demand

SCHIEDAM – Watersports and inflatable product specialist YellowV is launching a significant expansion in its range of innovative equipment.

For the first time, it offers a line of kayaks and ‘funtubes,’ extends its popular SUP and boat series, and strikes a partnership with navigation app Savvy Navvy, giving customers buying the new YellowV equipment a free, one-year subscription.

YellowV is a unit of Vetus, the Dutch designer and marketeer of boating systems.

The introduction of the latest YellowV products builds on the sales success of its unique ISUPs, each featuring a board game on the underside, inflatable platforms and boats, which stood out in the market following their launch in 2020 due to the smart, high-quality design, interesting features, and ergonomics.

Nick Tuinenburg, YellowV Product Sales Manager Vetus finds “people would like to cover greater distances, travel in challenging waters and move faster.  The additional YellowV products are:

  • Two new YVSUPs (stand-up paddle boards): the YVSUP13 Tugela, a 13ft fast, sporty tourer; and the YVSUP14 Niagara, a 14ft overnight SUP which is stable and fast for extensive touring.
  • Three new VB series boats: the 270cm long VB270B; the 300cm VB300B; and the 330cm VB330B, all featuring the signature black and yellow of YellowV.
  • Three new inflatable kayaks: the YVKAYAK1P, the 12ft entry model for one person; the YVKAYAK2P, the 13.8ft kayak for two people; and the YVKAYAK3P, the 15.4ft kayak for three people. All feature drop-stitch sidewalls and offer the experience of a hard kayak.
  • Four new towable funtubes: the YVFUN1DON donut funtube for one person; the YVFUN2TRI triangle funtube for two people; the YVFUN2DIS disc funtube for a high thrills experience for two people; and the YVFUN2BAN funtube banana for two people.

The YellowV brand started out as an idea of a group of young enthusiasts within VETUS, an internationally operating developer, manufacturer and trading company. With a clear focus to make watersports accessible for everyone. To make that happen, YellowV was born in 2019.
