The fly fishing industry is exploding, and Pavati Marine is no stranger to revolutionizing stale industries. Designing, engineering, and building the most innovative and functional low profile drift boat on Earth was right up our alley. The Helium™ low profile drift boat combines most of Pavati Marine’s trademarked technologies and signature features with fly fishing-specific innovations and newly designed features. The Helium™ was built with the needs of the small water fly fishermen in mind.Download Catalog
The Pavati Marine Helium™ low profile drift boat was designed to solve a problem. Other than the new Helium™, there are no low profile drift boats or fly fishing skiff-style boats that are built with tons of standard features, concepts like Pavati Marine's Quick-Lock™ Floor System and True Level Floors just to name a few. We set out to change that. The Helium™ is the proof in the pudding.Measurement Guide
This removable casting stand attaches directly to your pizza oven in the line deck and features a removable pad so your clients and buddies up front have a solid place to cast and fight fish.
One of our most popular upgrades. The Pavati Foam Kit keeps your boat organized, is easy to clean and adds a layer of style never before seen in a drift boat! Pavati Marine's foam kits are custom designed and cut to fit your drift boat perfectly. You can even add your guide service logo to them to further personalize your Pavati Marine drifter!
Yet another thing Pavati Marine has thought of to make your life on the river easier and more efficient. Doesn't it suck when you're launching your boat to have to unhook your trailer strap and then after you track down your bow rope and bang the carabiner on the side of your boat, hook it up to your bow eye? That's why every Pavati comes with an integrated bow rope, so your rope is always attached to your boat and you have one less thing to worry about.
Pavati Marine's 35lb anchors fit perfectly into the patented Locking Anchor Nest. These anchors are intentionally square pyramid shaped to ensure the best grab in swift water, even on rounded mossy rocks.
Add the Elite Side upgrade to your new Pavati drift boat and blast through any class rapid with extra confidence! You’re protected with diamond-punched aluminum on each side for extra strength and integrity. Not to mention, does any other drift boat in the world look as good as a Pavati Marine with Elite Sides? We didn't think so, either.
Pavati Marine is the only aluminum drift boat manufacturer that has the capabilities to build drift boats with a rounded transom. Pavati Marine's Ultra Flow™ Radius Transom is a one-piece, rounded transom, unlike other manufacturers that cut and weld multiple pieces together to create a transom with multiple angles. This allows for more lift off the water so your boat doesn't have as much of a rocker profile like traditional drift boats. The result is a smoother ride and less resistance when back-rowing.
Pavati Marine's revolutionary drift boat transoms were engineered to ensure that when you drop your motor into the back of your boat, it locks perfectly in place at the angle it was designed to run at. Our over-built, reinforced transom does not require you to add plywood or any additional stiffening materials to support the weight of your motor.
Jeweled gunnels are the finishing touch to your dream drift boat. This brushed-on finish has always been a signature on Pavati Marine drifters. Your new life at the boat ramp will include non-stop compliments from other fishermen!
Built-in rod storage tubes are a great way to add extra storage without taking up additional space. Every Pavati Marine drift boat comes with up to four doors. Anywhere you choose to not have a door, you get a built-in rod storage tube.
Lightweight and fully adjustable, this removable foot rest gives you unlimited positioning options. Using the Quick-Lock™ Floor System, this foot rest can be moved, adjusted, or removed in an instant.
This simple but exclusively Pavati Marine feature is just another of saying that we understand you. Yes, every Pavati Marine drift boat has a truly level floor, with no rises or drops to trip you at the perfectly imperfect time. Perfectly level floors with our integrated Quick-Lock™ Floor System.
The smell of 8-month-old fish blood and spoiled bait gathering in the bottom of your boat probably isn’t your favorite smell. It’s not ours either, which is why we build all of our Pavati Marine drift boats with removable floors. Now you can reach every part of your boat, all the way down to the hull, in seconds! The floor is made up of several large panels, each firmly secured with premium 3M military-grade velcro that won’t collect debris or lose stickiness.
Our patented Hexagon Floor Ribs are computer designed by our engineers and cut out by CNC machines to the exact shape required. They act as the backbone of the boat’s structure, holding the true intended shape of the boat and making our drift boat floors truly level. Other manufacturers use a wood or steel jig that forces the boat into its shape, then it’s welded and removed from the jig. This puts a lot of unwanted stress on the hull and doesn’t make for a very consistent manufacturing process – the boats “bounce back” a little after being removed from the jig. Much like an airplane's wing, Pavati Marine's Hexagon Stiffeners are the jig. They’re welded into the boat permanently to insure the correct and original design is held. To top it all off, we punch hundreds of hex holes into the stiffeners, which removes excess weight while keeping the strength. The result: the strongest and lightest stiffeners possible!
When it comes to cup holders in a boat, you can never have too many. They are great spots for everything, including scissors, pliers, scents, sun block, and even the occasional cold drink! All of our cup holders are made out of marine-grade stainless steel so they won't crack, break or rust in the elements. Our boats come standard with 6 of them, but you can add as many as you'd like!
Our magnetic side storage compartments save you time and space while you’re on the water. With built-in magnets that pilot our “Quick-Draw” technology, you always have your most needed tools one short reach away. Organize and store anything: lures, multi-tools and of course... your can of Copenhagen, all within arm’s reach. Pavati Marine boats come standard with 3 magnets, but you can add as many as you'd like!
The Pizza Oven does exactly what it says. This baby can cook a pizza! This is an enclosed space that is heated by our propane heating system. Keep your breakfast warm or even pick up yourself an entire pizza to cook for lunch! When not in use, this feature is an awesome storage compartment. It’s watertight and secure, so cell phones, wallets and cameras often find themselves in the oven.
The side trays offer more than just added strength in this boat; they provide much-needed storage space as well. This is a great place for life jackets, a break-down oar, fire extinguisher, extra layers of clothes, or whatever else you want to have out of the way. The storage remains right at your fingertips and can be easily accessed by everyone!
Our patented Locking Anchor Nest is a revolutionary feature that you’ll find in all Pavati Marine drift boats. This setup has an anchor nest with a lock to keep the anchor from jumping out during travel, a spot for your drain plugs, a block and tackle setup for easy pulling, and the anchor release mechanism. Gone are the days of tripping over your anchor that’s sitting on the floor.
When you get your new Pavati Marine drifter you want everything to be perfect. Having the oar locks in the right place is essential. Twelve different positions ensure that you will get the most leverage you can for those times when you need all the horsepower you can muster. Easily adjust these by unhooking the carabiner and simply moving these to the front or back until you find the perfect set up!
Pavati Marine’s exclusive Quick Lock™ Floor System consists of three removable panel sections with a precise layout of hundreds of small notches and holes. This allows every seat and accessory to be moved, instantly and with ease. When you want to change your layout it’s as easy as flipping a latch and finding a new location. In a matter of seconds, with no tools required, you can completely rearrange your boat to adjust for weight, gear and different fishing styles.
Shaving the floors and boxes in your new Pavati Marine drifter gives you the ultimate finish to your drift boat. These hand-shaved diamonds give your boat a little bit of contrast and bring back a little bit of the natural aluminum feel.

Placed in front of a passenger seat, it gives your fishermen a great place to stand secure and cast either direction out of the boat. This feature is 100% movable and removable. Just loosen up two wingnuts and remove the stand from your boat or place it exactly where it needs to be!
Add style and protection to the floors and boxes of your drift boat. Powder coating adds an extreme layer of protection from the elements and keeps those bumps and dings that are inevitable in a fishing boat to minimum visibility.
Add style and protection to the interior of your drift boat. A powder coated drift boat interior has many advantages on top of how great it looks. It's easier to clean and protects the aluminum from the elements, which prolongs the life of your boat!

How many times have you wanted to know how long your fish was to see if it was legal to keep or brag about? In the past you had to drag out a tape measure, if you could find it, or just guess. Not only is this inconvenient but a lot of fish die because they don't get back into the water in time. “THE TRUTH”™ Fish Ruler is engraved right into the aluminum and is great for measuring leaders too.
