Ab in­flat­a­bles builds the ABJet 380 with a six-per­son ca­pac­ity that in­cludes a helm bench seat for two with stowage un­der­neath. There’s seat­ing for two more and ad­di­tional stowage at the bow. Seat­ing for an­other cou­ple is just for­ward of the helm con­sole. Power for the 380 is a 150 hp Ro­tax 4-TEC 150 ECT mo­tor.

Some op­tions for the 380 in­clude a teak sole, Bi­mini top, GPS/chart plot­ter, cus­tom up­hol­stery and stain­less-steel tie downs.
