You don't want PVC boat. They are heavy, soft and easy to puncture and they don't last due to poor UV resistance. Go hypalon made boats instead.
They are much more expansive when new but you can buy used for below 1000 clams if you look properly. Best quality are Achilles and Avon. I have a 20
Years old Achilles used almost every weekend and it still doesn't have a single patch. Below are some examples.

It is worth to hope the border for a good deal. You have to watch CR as these boats come and go relatively fast.

Hey Jim,I have had inflatable boats better part of 43 years since I was 17. Had Zodiac,Aquamarine, Seaboo and the last few years back in Northern Ontario ordered a Seamaxx from B.C.
Excellent 14’ inflatable which I ran with a 76 15 Evinrude and a 24lb Minn Kota. I installed swivel bass seats on posts with a 3/4” marine ply floor. Used it for moose hunting in Ontario,never let me down very durable bounced off many a rock in the rivers,also bought a canvas Bimini top for it.
