The TARAN 16

The Taran 16 does everything its big brother does but in a slightly shorter fashion. The cockpit and deck layout are the same as the full-size Taran, but the overall length has been reduced. This provides even more maneuverability and a smooth ride over large, steep seas. The 16 is a fast boat that you can throw about. Stepping away from convention once again, speed has not been reduced! The trademark downwind handling is still there, too, combined with excellent surf handling. The 16 really comes to life with a nice wave to ride!

The Taran brings a radical new look to the Rockpool fleet. It is fast and sleek but with friendly handling characteristics that will please anyone. It is designed for the intermediate to the advanced paddler and has an unconventional design that will provide the modern high-performance paddlers are looking for. The Taran is a sea kayak that plays myriad roles: day boat, distance cruiser, weekend tourer, fitness trainer, or expedition boat. It even has a reputation for setting records and winning races. The more we paddle it, the more we find it can do!

The Bach Eto is the natural progression of the Alaw Bach, a longtime favorite. The same refreshing combination of stability, speed, and responsive handling, but a bit roomier and with a much-requested front day hatch. Rocker has been increased in the back end to improve maneuverability without affecting speed. Volume in the nose and tail above the waterline has been increased to smooth the ride in the surf. Cockpit and seat now match the popular Taran line.

The Alaw emerged from the Rockpool factory as the first of a new generation of high-performance, fast, and comfortable sea kayaks with raised knee position. It is a refined mid-volume sea kayak that combines speed, maneuverability, and stability. This is a boat that happily fills the touring role but LOVES playing around in surf and tide races.

Length: 17 feet 1 inch (5.21m) | Width: 21 inches (0.53m) | Volume: 335 litres

Price: As this has largely been replaced by the ETO we are offer the Alaw only on request and then subject to manufacturer's existing build capacity. Price determined as if and when.


The Isel is designed to fit the smaller paddler, with a snug cockpit, excellent handling, and enough speed to keep up with the group on the water. The Isel has an updated deck layout and, though the deck has been lowered to give a better cockpit fit, still has a useful load-carrying capacity. The hull has been updated to improve handling even further.

The design ethos behind the MENAI was to develop a kayak to carry large amounts of expedition kit over long distances at a good speed and in considerable comfort. No simple matter! The long waterline combines a large cargo volume with a good cruising speed. In order to counter this length and maintain good maneuverability, a flattened hull was placed in the center section. This results in surprisingly good maneuverability for spot turns, and when in the surf, it also gives very good levels of stability. The extended keel section to the rear maintains good directional stability when paddling on a heading but lifts free from the water when on a lean, to aid turning. The MENAI has been designed to remain directionally neutral in most wind conditions with a slight tendency to turn up-wind as wind strength increases.

The GT

The GT is a high volume sea kayak that is fast and especially easy to maneuver. Combine this with predictable and precise stability, and you’ve got a boat that handles like a dream! The hull can carry a significant expedition load but is designed to be as maneuverable and nimble as a smaller kayak. The cockpit is roomy for comfort on long trips, and the front day hatch makes it easy to access to all those little on-water essentials. The GT is a ‘one-boat quiver’ – equally at home for expedition paddling, weekend touring, or day trip paddling!

Length: 17 feet 10 inches | Width: 21 inches | Volume: 380 litres

Price: The mold for the GT is on hold. We are, for the moment, not offering this boat new.


The Tarantella has been designed to provide a true low volume version of the Taran’s record-breaking design. Developed in response to popular demand, the Tarantella is designed specifically for smaller, lighter paddlers. It features the same distinctive bow, long waterline, high front deck, and flat hull as the Taran, making it a fast, dry kayak to paddle both up-and down-wind.

Designed by Johan Wirsen, the Rebel Ilaga displays beautiful, clean lines. The Ilaga is a low volume Greenland style kayak with an ocean cockpit. It features an integrated, foldable laminated backrest for both layback rolls and to give access to storage between the backrest and rear bulkhead. It also features steel rods for roof rack security or tow line mounting. Available in three layups and four stock colors, as well as custom.

17’10” Length, 19.75” Beam

Price:  Carbon/Kevlar $3,800 | Full carbon $4,200 | plus local taxes as appropriate.

Nanuq Kayaks


One of the essential design objectives for Naja was to create a Greenland kayak that the designer could not get into. Naja was built with smaller-framed paddlers in mind, especially women. This composite kayak could be called the Ilaga’s “little sister.” Naja is shorter, narrower, and shallower than Ilaga and has an audacious spirit all its own. It’s quick and responsive and rolls like it never wants to stop. Available in three layups and four stock colors, as well as custom.

16’8″ Length; 18.5″ Beam

Price: Layup prices on request | plus local taxes as appropriate.

Nanuq Kayaks


Designed with extra volume and bigger cockpit, but maintains the same 17’10” length as the Ilaga. The Greenland T has a keyhole cockpit, while the Greenland TOC sports a traditional ocean cockpit (a smaller opening). Both models have four hatches, including a 6″ day-hatch. The Greenland T and TOC feature classic lines and hard-chined hulls. The front deck is low enough for paddler contact to aid maneuverability and forward rolls, while the rear deck makes for easy layback rolls. There is an extra cord on the rear deck to store a storm or spare paddle. Both boats have laminated backrests that connect the seat with the top of the back cockpit rim. The backrest can be folded to access extra storage. Steel security rods are placed behind the rim for locking the kayak to your roof rack or for a towing system. Available in three layups and four stock colors, as well as custom.

17’10” Length, 21.25″ Beam

Price: Approximately $3750 | Other layup prices on request | plus local taxes as appropriate.

Nanuq Kayaks


A moderate rocker and more symmetrical hull shape make the Husky a playful kayak. With a hard chine and flat V-shaped bottom, and fine ends towards bow and stern, it’s made to maneuver. It has a low profile and is very easy to roll. It features stainless steel rods for a towing system or for roof rack security, plus it has multiple decklines for all of your gear. Available in three layups and four stock colors, as well as custom.

17′ Length, 21″ Beam

Price: Approximately $3700 Carbon Kevlar | Other layup prices on request | plus local taxes as appropriate.
