Chesapeake Sport Tandem

There was a lot of demand but hardly anything like it in 2002 when we unveiled the Chesapeake Sport Tandem. This very narrow, very fast double is perfect for athletic couples who want to really cover the miles, whether it's for excercise, super-fast touring, or winning races. Most of our Sport Tandems are sold to people who watched one disappear over the horizon in front of them during a race. While intended for racing or working out, the Sport Tandem can still carry a good load of gear, making it ideal for multiple-day unsupported races like the Watertribe Everglades Challenge.

Build this boat if:

  • You need a racing kayak for two
  • You are in an long-duration adventure race
  • You are athletic and like to cover ground
  • You are a strong paddler who wants to carry a child or large dog
