The Canaveral is aimed at recreational paddlers wanting a day or week-ender kayak. The design is aimed at effortless sheltered water paddling but the stability and hull form is fully capable of coping with moderate wind & waves in open water conditions.
The shorter length and light weight of the kayak also help with off water transport / storage.
The rounded hull sections have a slight V, waterlines are fuller forward of the classic “fish form”, the keel line is well rockered. This is a low resistance hull form giving a good turn of speed for the length of kayak, easily capable of keeping pace with longer sea kayaks. The deep bow is dry in up-wind conditions and the Canaveral is fast and nimble in down-wind conditions.
The Canaveral is easily manoeuvrable but has sufficient directional stability to be paddled without a rudder, however for optimum performance a “Smart Track” rudder is fitted as standard.
The Canaveral range of recreational kayaks come in 3 sizes to suit varying paddler weights and sizes from an older child / teenager to a larger paddler up to 110kg for the Canaveral 15L.
