Sea Island Sport

Finally! A sit-on-top with style — Traditional sea kayaks are elegant and sleek but their cockpits exclude a lot of people who paddle where it’s hot, and almost anybody who has stiff knees or who doesn’t want to be confined in an enclosed cockpit.

The Sea Island Sport is 15′6″ long and features a pleasing shape, attractive from every angle, with a unique contrasting deck made out of Sapele plywood. The reddish Sapele contrasts with the more honey-colored BS 1088 Okoume in the hull. Sharp-eyed observers will note the similarity to CLC’s popular Eric Schade-designed Shearwater line.

The Sea Island’s roomy cockpit will fit almost anyone under 275 pounds. Any water that comes in will drain right back out through the bottom of the boat. Nothing confines the paddler. You don’t need to worry about your shoe size, and the “height at knees” measurement is infinite. The boat is easy to get into, and for fishermen, stability is sufficient to drop the paddle and reel in a big striper.
