MEASUREMENTS THAT MEAN SOMETHING

LENGTH

It’s all about speed and maneuverability. Longer boats tend to be faster, while shorter boats are easier to turn.

WIDTH

Width isn’t just about comfort, it also affects handling. A narrow boat will be faster, a wider boat will be more stable.

CAPACITY

You’ll want to consider how much gear you plan to pack in your storage hatches as well as on your deck.

BEYOND COMFORT

NOT YOUR AVERAGE KAYAK SEATS
