Made of durable RAM-X material, the Intruder 12 features built-in motor mounts at the bow and stern, reinforced bench seats, two vertical rod holders, oarlock receptacles, and carrying handles.

A simpler version of the Pelican Jon boat, the Intruder 12 weighs a little less than the Gator, making it easier to handle out of the water. This also can make it feel flimsy to some, and you may want to think of this as more of a temporary boat than a long-lived tool. Still, the boat can be fun to take on the water with kids or by yourself, as it can be hauled around on a trailer or pickup bed.
