Chesapeake kayaks are expedition touring boats that excel in rough water and steep seas. With their high-volume bows, the Chesapeake's cruise over big waves. Their highly cambered foredecks shed water quickly and provide plenty of foot room for comfortable cockpits. The skeg-like stern design assures train-like tracking and minimal weathercocking, even in fierce crosswinds.
The Chesapeake's hard-chine hull is strongly influenced by West Greenland design. It's easy to lean and turn, handles following seas confidently, and surfs beautifully. The cockpit, with our trademark one-piece keyhole coaming rim, is roomy and easy to pad out for a custom fit. Paddlers under 170 lbs. will enjoy an expedition boat that fits and paddles well: the Chesapeake 16. It can carry a total load of 260 lbs.
