The Esperanto is one of the fastest plastic tandems on the market. It is easy to paddle, comfortable, stable and can reach impressive cruising speeds. A moderate rocker and a large rudder contribute to efficient turns. The practical center compartment can be used for extra storage or outed with our optional child seat/bulkhead. The cockpits are spaced sufficiently apart allowing the paddlers to paddle at their own speed without risk of accidental collision between paddles. This makes the Esperanto ideally suited for a pair of paddlers with mixed abilities, families with young children or a long expedition needing high volume of storage and displacement.
My wife and i rented one of these kayaks for a paddling trip around the Copper Harbor, MI area. What a great kayak! Even though my wife was not very experienced, she still found the craft very stable and maneuverable. You can tell it is a high quality kayak. We will definitely be purchasing one of these in the near future!
