Show Description

Loaded, it's a fast cruiser for extended expeditions. Empty, it's a playful, responsive day boat. Stable and efficient, the Cetus' rounded chine, slightly Vee'd hull, and generous bow rocker allow control while running with waves. This High Volume (HV) version accommodates paddlers with longer legs and bigger feet, or those wanting maximum cargo capacity. The four-hatch design will suit instructors and expedition sea kayakers looking for a boat for exposed trips and conditions.

  • Fibreglass lay-up provides an excellent balance of weight, stiffness and durability and can be easily repaired.
  • 4 hatches provide options for loading gear.
  • Deck pod forward of the cockpit lets you store small items and safely access them on the water.
  • Moulded thigh grips and vacuum-formed seat provide solid and comfortable contact points for paddling efficiency and control.
  • Adjustable backrest is supportive but low-profile to allow layback rolls and dynamic upper body movements.
  • Retractable skeg lets you fine-tune handling and directional stability as conditions change.
  • HV version is recommended for paddlers between 65kg and 140kg or those who want capacity for long trips.
