The ISEL

The design philosophy behind the ISEL was to provide a boat designed to fit the smaller paddler with a snug fitting 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, it still has a good load carrying capacity. The hull has been updated to improve handling yet further.

The cockpit is large and roomy to make sure you are comfortable over those long trips, with a day hatch on the front deck to make it easy to gain access to all those little essentials!

The cockpit is roomy for good levels of comfort on long trips and the front day hatch makes it easy to access to all those little on the water essentials. The G.T. is ideally suited to the ‘one-boat’ role; equally at home for expedition paddling, weekend touring or day trip paddling.

The TARAN 16

The Taran 16 does everything its big brother does but in a slightly shorter fashion! Cockpit and deck layout are the same as the full size Taran but the overall length has been reduced. This gives even more manoeuvrability and a nice smooth ride over larger 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 16 is not going to live in the shadow of its big bother. The trademark downwind handling is still there too, combined with excellent surf handling. The 16 really comes to life with a nice wave to surf!

The Tarantella

Rockpool Kayaks has added a new low volume kayak to its fleet – the Tarantella.

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 making it a fast, dry kayak to paddle both up and down-wind.

Rebel Naja

 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 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, four stock colors as well as custom.

Price: Standard layup; $3100 | Other layup prices on request | plus local taxes as appropriate.  

Rebel Greenland T and TOC

They are designed with extra volume to suit the bigger cockpit better, keeping the same 17’10” length as the Ilaga. The Greenland T has a keyhole cockpit, while the Greenland TOC sports a traditional ocean cockpit with its smaller opening. Both models have four hatches, including a 6″ day-hatch

The Greenland T and TOC feature classic lines and a hardchined 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 a spare paddle. The Greenland T and TOC have laminated backrests that connect the seat with the top of the back 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.

Price: Standard layup; $3150 | Other layup prices on request | plus local taxes as appropriate.  

Rebel Husky

A moderate rocker and more symmetrical hull-shape make 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 has multiple decklines for all of your gear.

USED KAYAKS

We have Used kayaks – in really excellent condition -NDK boat, model ROMANY, built 2007, on water about 2008/9.

NDK ROMANY

slightly used; excellent condition; Skeg, Footpads, #2 seat and backhand. One of the very best boats for all paddlers developed and built by Nigel Dennis. It is in the Shop for viewing and sale. AS IS. Great Boat!

Price: $2400

Valley Q-Boat

18′ long x 21.2″ wide; weight about 56lbs; large keyhole cockpit, as photos show.

Classic Valley Kayak “Q-Boat” asking $1500, barely used, very clean, no serious scratches or dings; known when built as the Qajariaq for those who want to do research; this is a boat for the intermediate paddler of good size, read reviews at Paddling.Com but in sum, this is an excellent all-around boat; 5 Star rating; “primary stability is reassuring; secondary is good but “what makes this boat great fun is its maneuverability. Just edge it slightly in flat water and it will lock into a tight turn until you stop it with a paddle stroke” from a 6’4″ , 250lb paddler.  Hard chines and good speed make for solid turns and good surfing in short waves.  Needs a larger paddler to put the rocker lower in the water at which point the boat excels.  As usual, we don’t expect this boat to be around a long time.

Price: $1500
