16' 6" Resolute

Resolute 16-6, large capacity, stable yet pleasing to the eye. Developed in response to requests from heavier and wider paddlers who also wanted a shorter boat, this stable load carrier is excellent for the novice kayaker. It will inspire confidence and lead to a continuing enjoyment of the sport. Like the 14 footer, the rocker has been reduced aft to aid in tracking ability. The beam is ample at 25.4″ and the cockpit has been widened to match. The hull is a very shallow vee, the flattest of the hulls shown here to permit the width for stability and yet maintain a moderate displacement. A maximum beam of 25.4″ compared with the 17 footer at 23.5″ is more stable and has good load capacity. Average load is 260 lbs. but it can handle up to 340 lbs. without a problem.
