In 2010, the Hatteras becomes our most playful design, featuring added rocker, lower rear deck, and a softer chine for confidence in bigger conditions, surf or exploring rock gardens with ease.

Our 14-foot touring kayak is the perfect downsized sea kayak for the smaller paddler. The large rear hatch and round front hatch give it great overnight appeal in a lighter-weight kayak. Keep up with the longer boats while maintaining the maneuverability to paddle narrow rivers.
