Overview

The Xceed range of sea kayaks is designed to serve two purposes: to be efficient, capable, seaworthy expedition kayaks, while also being dynamic to paddle on day trips. Computer designed, the Xceed series hulls are honed to provide especially efficient cruising at above 4 knots. Hatch volume is large, especially in the larger model sizes – these boats have a proven expedition pedigree. Contact www.kayakacademy.com in Washington, www.kayakways.net in Maine & www.umingmaqp
Cockpit foredecks are relatively high giving a dynamic and commanding paddling position. When paddled with a light load on day trips, the Xceed rewards the enthusiastic paddler who enjoys edge-turns and easy wave catching. The Touring series appeal to sea kayakers who want get away from it all. At home crossing oceans in all sea conditions, these kayaks are designed for traveling far from land, and for exploring the landscape from an on-water perspective. The generous volume in the hatches allows an escape for a few nights to several weeks or more, and once you land at your perfect spot you will enjoy the night in comfort.

Our boats are all computer designed. This gives us exact information about where the centre of buoyancy is located, allowing the seats and cockpits to be precisely located. It also enables us to scale a model design up or down to suit different paddler sizes and weight. Each time we do this, we effectively create a new kayak which preserves all the performance criteria of the original and ensures that the hull feedback to the paddler is kept the same.
