We have a Sea Eagle 385ft FastTrack, It is not cheap.
It has a hard (high pressure floor ) floor, it is possible to stand up in it.
I keep looking at the stand up inflatable paddle boards, wonder how they would work as a Kayak as sitting on them.

I have an inflatable Advanced (elements) Frame Expedition kayak that is yellow, a single seat and is a few years old.  We have used it about six times.  Kept it inside the house.  It will manage 400 Lbs quite easily.  It has a fabric outer cover with multiple interior bladders and a super thick smooth bottom..  It has a partial-frame technology with aluminum frames at the bow and aft that give it a nice pointy front and back for piercing the waves.  It's not for running rivers, its for the ocean or lakes or calm rivers.  It's 13 feet long, you can put yourself in it along with enough stuff for a week if you wanted to.  Anyway, if you are interested I will be coming down in the first 2 weeks of Feb, 2017 and I could bring it with me.  I can send pictures ahead of time.  It's a very robust inflatable and very comfortable and stable.  Send me a private message with an email if you want some photos.  Cost me $700, make me a decent offer that's fair for both of us.   It's about 45 Lbs, about the size of a medium suitcase.  Comes with paddle and pump.  Pump inflates and deflates (a must to get it back in the bag for any inflatable.
sorry, just realized this was an old post.  Not sure how to move it Mr. Moderator, it's OK if you want to move it to sales.

We just bought the Sea Eagle 370Pro version and tried it out last week. We loved it. I paddled it solo in the San Carlos Marina, around the bay, under the bridge and up through the mangroves. 
We also paddled with 3 adults in it around Bahia San Pedro and Martini Cove. It did great. It's rated to carry up to 3 adults or 650 lbs, saltwater resistant, very durable, and easily folds up and everything stows nicely in a carry bag that is about the size of a sail bag. Inflation was very easy with the manual foot pump. 
I will highly recommend this one.
