Premium Pre-Owned Elan Sea Kayak by Mariner Kayaks

Experience the perfect blend of performance and elegance with the hard-to-find Mariner Elan Sea Kayak! This top-tier kayak, crafted by Matt and Cam Broze, retired masters in Seattle, WA (formerly Mariner Kayaks), is not only a stunning piece of craftsmanship but also a joy to paddle. And it's right here in Southern Maine. I had this boat custom-made and shipped across the country, during my sea paddling years.

Key Features:

  • Length: Just over 16 feet (16.15)
  • Beam: 21.5 inches
  • Construction: Hand-crafted fiberglass
  • Color: Striking purple and white with black trim
  • Design: Narrow hull and low wetted surface for efficient paddling
  • Bow: Slightly tipped to push through waves
  • Skeg: Molded for extreme maneuverability
  • Capacity: Ideal for paddlers from 90 to 160 lbs
  • Storage: Ample space in both the front and back compartments
  • Condition: Pre-owned and extremely well-cared for, with one small, expertly completed patch on the hull, bowside

Performance Highlights:

  • Maneuverability: The Elan moves with precision, making it feel like an extension of yourself.
  • Comfort: Soft ride and secure neutrality in rough seas, with excellent elbow clearance and low sidewind profile for handling higher winds.
  • Skill Development: Novice paddlers will find the Elan both rewarding and encouraging as their skills advance, while experienced paddlers will appreciate its responsiveness and control.

This beautiful boat (and discontinued), designed for smaller paddlers, allows you to lean and steer with your entire body, making it perfect for carrying a gear-load and maintaining pace with stronger paddlers. The Elan is essentially a scaled-down version of the famous Mariner Max, known for winning many races and awards.

Don’t miss this opportunity to own a top-quality kayak that will elevate your paddling adventures. Similar newly constructed boats go for more than $3000.
