Deuce Coupe Description

Like its solo counterpart, the Deuce Coupe is the most versatile tandem sit on top ever produced and the only tandem sit-on-top kayak with a deployable skeg for tracking. With the skeg tucked away, the Deuce Coupe steers effortlessly from the stern and solo seating positions while paddling rivers and back bays, but with the skeg in the down position, the Deuce Coupe tracks straight and true. This versatile sit-on-top is especially family friendly with three seats and plenty of space for additional gear. With the Deluxe Wedge stern seat, the Wedge bow seat and the Tag Along Wheel now standard on every boat, the Deuce Coupe offers up unparalleled comfort and control in a beautiful, roll-away package.

Clearly very well and substantially built. A bit on the heavy side so use a kayak dolly. The built-in wheel is useful only on hard surfaces. The Deuce Coupe inspires confidence.

Awesome vessel

We purchased our Orange Deuce Coupe 2 years ago. We have a coupe single sit in kayaks as well. we love the stability and comfort of the little deuce coupe. we probably wouldn't had purchased the singles if we had purchased the coupe first. we had some friends like our so much they purchased a Blue deuce last year. Very enjoyable. a little heavy but the tote wheel helps with that. a Great product well engineered for comfort and stability.

Idaho family guy

Great family boat.

I was looking for a paddle boat with lots of versatility. Something my landlover wife could tolerate and something I could enjoy with my 2 young boys (ages 4&6). I got my boat in early June. After several times out, it's working out great! Easy to transport. Easy to load on a rook rack on top of my truck. Very stable in the water, even with all 4 of us!!
I am thinking we'll eventually want another Deuce Coupe, or maybe a Versaboard. This boat is well worth the money!

We picked up our Deuce Coupe right at the factory and the Liquid Logic team went out of the way to make sure it was ready for us when we arrived. Awesome support and the attention to detail on the kayak is incredible. Great experience picking it up with the entire family there to get excited. Thanks again.

First one came damaged. 2nd one that I got was a 2015 model but since it was a run around I do believe my seats were upgraded (unless they make it standard to have the wedge seat) Non the less the boat is super comfy. Tracks great with or without the skeg in my opinion. Well worth the money. Great design having a shallow hull. I was worried about storing it in the garage but just set it up against the wall on the floor and there's plenty of room between the boat and vehicles. Cannot wait to push the boundaries of this boat in class III. Thank you for making my purchasing experience right and taking off some cash for the bump in the beginning LL!

I have 2 other boats...

I have 2 other boats (Perception America, Wilderness System Pungo) and was interested in a SOT. I did weeks of research on every website that covered SOT kayaks. After coming to the conclusion to go with the Liquidlogic Deuce Coupe I couldn't be happier.

It's a great family boat with my wife, granddaughter and a picnic lunch packed aboard looking for that sandbar on the Edisto River to pull over and have lunch. I've also used it solo and found that it handles great in all kinds of condition's. I go fishing with the guys at work a lot. Most of them have dedicated fishing SOT's, with the seat in the solo position I've got plenty of room for all my tackle, rods and a cooler and can stand and cast with no problem (fishing model Liquidlogic). The seats on this boat are so comfortable my friends are jealous and a couple are trying to figure out how to modify their boats to accept the seats.

Overall I'm extremely pleased with this boat and would recommend it to anyone looking for a tandem SOT get one and get out and enjoy the water.

So I am a guy that did...

So I am a guy that did lots of paddling 20 years ago a recently got the urge to get back into it. I often paddle solo which steered me towards a SoT so I could get back on it rather than rely on my very old rolling skills. That part was easy however there were other requirements too, I wanted to be able to Kayak with my wife and kids oh I want to do lakes, ocean and a bit of class 2/3 fun.

I looked at the obvious choices from Ocean Kayak and Perception etc and found they were really designed just to go straight which means easy to live with as long as you don't what to have fun. Then I came across the Liquid Logic Deuce Coupe at a Rental Center and loved it. So whats so great about it?

  1. It's hull shape is based on a white water boat with rocker so it can turn very well for a 13ft boat.
  2. It has a drop down skeg which is activated by a handy lever with this dropped you get straight line speed and great tracking when paddling with cross winds.
  3. It does white water!!
    I did get some strange looks when I launched this with all the rafters and whiter water kayakers on the American river that was running at the mid Class 3 levels. Awesome fun with two people, you can steer around and into stuff and the sheer momentum means you can just charge through stoppers that stall out lighter boats. Note you will get wet!! There are plenty of massive scuppers and the boat drains almost instantly so no great stress.
  4. They boat now ships as standard with two very comfortable seats. You and convert to a single seat option buy unscrewing 4 screws and moving the rear seat to the central position.
There are a few minor negatives to consider, none of these should be deal breakers:
  1. Heavy! about 75lbs makes it hard to load on a roof rack on your own.
  2. Cup holders, there are 5 molded in cup holders (more than my car) The problem is it is easy to knock your beer out of these holders with your paddle, especially when it gets bumpy.
  3. No Knee braces, this is what really limits the capability to Class 3, the boat would get down more challenging runs but you just can't stay on it. I think knee straps are an option on the single seater version.
Overall an awesome fun boat that really does deliver on its promise of versatility.

Liquid Logic and their Deuce Coupe are Awesome!

Liquid Logic's customer service is wonderful. I chose to ship the Deuce Coupe to a 'Terminal' via Old Dominion Freight and they were extremely easy to work with as well. The kayak arrived in great condition and was packaged very well. This is my 3rd kayak, and 3rd brand, and the Deuce Coupe is by far the best quality and the most superior designed kayak that I've ever owned. Love the blue color. The seats are very comfortable and I love that they are attached to the boat and they adjust quickly and easily. The tagalong wheel works great moving the kayak from the garage, to the back of the truck, down the boat ramp and back home again. My wife feels very comfortable with the stability of the boat, which is an absolute must. It tracks well with the skeg down and turns with extreme ease with the skeg up. A milk crate fits in the rear storage area no problem and I plan to add a few rod holders as well. We've had the kayak out on a couple of freshwater lakes already and in some heavier chop/white cap conditions with water coming over the bow. The storage areas with the rubber caps and the inside of the boat stayed bone dry. I've paddled solo from the rear and it wasn't too bad and I do look forward to moving the seat to the center position. The kayak is a bit heavier than other tandems, but I'd rather have a little heavier boat than a less quality boat. The tagalong wheel is not made for off-road applications, but the trusty kayak cart is used for that purpose. I've been looking for a kayak that I could padd

Its quality and appearance is superior. You can see the extra effort the company goes to to make a great product in the way it packaged it for shipment. That time and care says a lot about the company. Great product.

Couldn't Have Made a Better Choice

For her maiden voyage, my wife and I took our new Deuce Coupe out on large Colorado mountain lake, a lake that doesn't allow powered boats, only SUPs, kayaks, and canoes, and it was simply pure pleasure that day, convincing us that we'd made the right choice of kayak. We discovered for ourselves that all the other reviews that we'd read about the Deuce before we plunked our money down were not only true, but we feel there is no other conclusion possible but that this is one well conceived, well designed, highly versatile, very maneuverable, quality boat. I know, I know, it sounds like I work in the Liquid Logic marketing department, but really, I don't, I'm just a guy that loves high quality, efficient, well made products.

On our next excursion we paddled about eight miles on Horsetooth reservoir near Ft. Collins, CO. My wife doesn't swim, so the ultra stability of the Deuce Coupe was a real comfort to her, inspiring confidence and enhancing our overall enjoyment of the day. This was especially important as this was our first experience on large lake where power/ski boats were creating good size wakes/waves that might have scared the eebie -geebies out of her had we chosen a lower quality kayak with lesser stability. The boat just casually took on every wave with a "ho-hum, is that all you've got?" nonchalance. It was also great so observe wildlife near the water’s edge from the boat, like the doe and her two spotted fauns, and later the young buck in velvet.

Next we took our Deuce up to a high mountain lake at 10,000 ft to lazily paddle around looking for resident moose (plural) that frequent the area. Only saw one, but still Great Fun!

One more pleasant surprise. I finally got a chance to move the stern seat to the middle position and do a little solo paddling. I love it! In solo mode “it moves”, and handles very nicely. I also wanted to play around with other options for paddling the Deuce, so I tried standing up and using it as a SUP. Very stable. I only got off my hind legs after the wind started whipping up some white cap waves. Then I tried kneeling and paddling from just behind the solo seat. That was fun too, and gave me a lot of power to my paddle strokes. Again, I’m so glad we chose the Deuce Coupe for our tandem kayak. It’s also really great knowing that we'll be able to move into doing some light whitewater kayaking, which we’re now gearing up for. Just another reason we chose this boat. I’m looking forward to more Liquid logic boats in my future. So far I have my sights set on a Coupe and a Remix XP9.

We should have done this long ago, but then, we might not have had the option of choosing the Deuce Coupe if we'd decided to start kayaking before this great boat had been introduced. It’s really nice to know that we didn’t have to buy one, two or more inadequate boats before finding this gem.

I have to say that the company and everyone I dealt with at liquid Logic during the process of choosing, ordering and receiving our kayak have been extremely friendly, sincere, helpful and accommodating every step of the way. This is especially true when the boat had to be replaced after the shipper damaged the first Deuce Coupe and another had to be shipped out (which I was assured by both the shipper and Liquid Logic is a rare occurrence). If you choose this tandem, this company, or any of their boats you can’t go wrong, the quality of their products, and their commitment to customer service and satisfaction is all there.

Great Lake Kayak

My wife and I love our Deuce Coupe. We are both in our early 50's and are novice Kayakers on Watauga Lake in Butler, TN (as in, we have never done this before). The kayak is very stable and very easy to maneuver. It is easy to launch and transport in our truck (hangs out a bit in back but nothing a red transport flag can't handle). This is our empty-nest gift to each other.

Maiden Voyage

The Duece Coupe was a pleasure to command. On the lake we had a 10-15 mph breeze but with the skeg down we kept straight. The rear wheel for one person moving is another feature well worth the investment. We love it!

This is an excellent all...

This is an excellent all around family sit on top. It doesn't excel tremendously in any one area, other than in flexibility. It can be paddled solo or tandem. I have also paddled it while sitting in the center with one kid up front and one kid behind. It handles flatwater fine thanks to the addition of a drop down skeg. It also handles rivers up to class III without much difficulty thanks to slightly more rocker than a typical SOT and a more rounded hull. The seating is very comfortable.

In summation: If you're looking for a boat that lets you handle surf, flats, and moderate whitewater and lets you take two adults or an adult and two kids, and you have the space to store this 13' beast, the Deuce Coupe is well worth a demo paddle.


I bought this boat for a fun adventure for myself, wife, kid and dogs. It has lived up to its reviews. Spent hours on the water already and planning more trips that include kayaking. Highly recommend! The skeg option is incredible when on flat water trying to paddle straight. Boat is very stable and hard to tip over you about have to try and tip it over to make it possible.

Awesome family fun!

Got this boat to spend some time with my wife and 7 year old daughter. We've had it on lake Ocoee and it handled great with all three of us. It is very stable and easy to get in and out of and moves pretty fast for such a large kayak with two adults and one child. This last weekend we put it in the top of the Hiwassee River and did some class II white water. It handled well and my daughter loved getting splashed and surfing. The best part was her catching her first trout all by herself. Love the boat and the memories we are making on it!

Fun Times on OUR NEW Blue Deuce Coupe

Finally got a chance to take our Blue Deuce Coupe out on the Water. It was wonderful, Fun and can not wait to do it again ..... On Lake Powell!!!!! The wheel to transporting down to the water area worked perfect and the handles are very comfortable when pulling the Kayak. The Seats are very comfortable too! Thanks so much. My only suggestion is the front end of the boat was scuffed up from being transported. More protection on the tips of the boat for transporting? I was really hoping we would put the first scuff on our Mighty Blue Coupe.

Deuce Coupe Haul all

Bought this boat a couple years ago, and have been using it a lot, it is made to take two to three people or two or more dogs. The boat is heavy, but if you buy the right accessories like Yakima boatloader, it is not that bad of a load, I have a Honda Element so it is kind of tall load. Sometimes I wish the footpegs were longer, but it would be into the next seat. make sure to by The Wheel that hooks into the rear ! We added a Windpaddle sail, it helps out on really windy days. If you have another person to take, get a Deuce Coupe!.....and it comes in Orange !

Its a great boat, but

it's a behemoth. We had an Ocean Kayak before this one, and we didn't realize how much heavier this boat would be than that one. At 78 pounds, it's difficult for us to load and unload onto our vehicle. We really enjoy this boat once it's on the water, but transporting it is a challenge. If you're parking it at your beach house, hauling it with a trailer, or you're really buff, go ahead and buy this boat. If you're two old farts like us and you drive a high profile vehicle, take that into consideration when you're planning a purchase.

Great boat

The deuce coupe is amazing. Very comfortable and easy to paddle in a straight line or turn around. The sides are low so you can paddle without having to reach. This is my 4th kayak and first sit on top. I am very happy with its performance. Very solid when I took it fishing as well. The wheel in the back is handy.

The kayak was delivered and looks wonderful! Exactly as I if he weather would just cooperate it could take its maiden voyage!

I have had a coupe for two years before purchasing the duece. I love it and the chance to spend time with my kids (13 and 10) in different types of water.

The start of it all

This is the boat that fulfilled one of Liquid Logic's mission goals... it got my wife and I on the water. We both just started our fifties and were tired of sitting on the shore watching everyone else enjoying the water. After weeks of research, we pulled the trigger on the Deuce and have loved every second of it. Folks, the seats are the absolute best. Hours of lake and river travel and not one twinge of back pain. Fantastically comfortable, engineered to perfection, incredibly stable and beautifully styled. If you're looking for a tandem, get it and get out on the water!

Purchased the Liquid Logic...

Purchased the Liquid Logic Deuce Coupe because of several features: the ease of moving the kayak to the water when a boat launch is not an option, plenty of room for two kayakers, ability to paddle solo or duo, a skeg that can be lowered or raised depending on desire to go straight or navigate tight waterways, and because it is a very stable kayak and hard to flip. Found out the kayak was not easy to move through various terrains (had to purchase a kayak dolly), limited storage options to hold gear for a day trip, and very hard to reach storage areas as a solo kayaker.

The kayak is very stable and I love the skeg design giving you the option for more maneuverability when needed. Biggest con to the boat is that it is easily cut – I have taken it out on the water three times and it does not just get dinged and scuffed – these are actually cuts in the boat anytime it hits anything – durability is low.
Liquid Logic was more expensive than other kayaks – I probably would not spend the extra money for Liquid Logic next time.

I have had the Deuce Coupe...

I have had the Deuce Coupe for 2 months now and I think it is great. So far if have paddled 4 different lakes and it is great on flat water. The speed boats leave a wake but this kayak is so stable it just gently rocks over them with no need to turn into them. It turns very easily back in the tight canyons of Arizona with the skeg up and we can slip both ends of the boat. Drop the skeg and it tracks straight all the way across the lake even in strong wind and waves.

My wife and I have really enjoyed using this boat and is a beautiful thing when we can paddle in sync. We can hang our feet over the side when we eat lunch and just relax. It is the perfect way to escape the heat in Arizona. 105 degrees outside and 68 degree water dripping on you keeps you just right.

With both of us being in our 60's this has been a great adventure. Transports easily on top of my car, I can load it by myself especially with the help of a rug and the wheel at the back. What a great boat and so much fun.

My wife and I have enjoyed...

My wife and I have enjoyed the Deuce Coupe for about 10 weeks. I find it difficult to lift it to the car rack (Honda CRV) because of weight. An extra set of handles would help since it is so long. The seats are excellent! Could use a little bit larger storage bins but not a must. The skeg rules!! Keeps this large boat straight where you point it even in some Intercoastal winds. The "mango" color is really orange and quite noticeable. Would buy it again without a doubt. Best tandem for the money.

I have 3 kayaks at...

I have 3 kayaks at present. The first two being a surf kayak, a whitewater kayak and the 3rd and newest being the Liquid Logic Duece Coupe. I find the Duece Coupe as a tandem paddles straight with out the skeg and seems to be faster that way. Turning the kayak is fairly quick. To get the most out of this boat, you may want to practice your paddling stokes . Oh, and by the way, this sot is really a lot of fun.

I bought a Deuce Coupe...

I bought a Deuce Coupe about 2 weeks ago before heading to the coast for a week with my family. I'm an experienced canoeist (mainly C1 and C2, wildwater team several years in C2) and this is the first kayak to join a fleet of various types of canoes, though I've paddled a number of kayaks over the years. I have kids 4 and 7.

What a fun boat! We took it out every day we stayed on the North Carolina coast at Emerald Isle. The first day out we had decent swell and my brother in-law and I did some nice surfing runs - the boat is very controllable coming down a wave face, and will side surf smoothly if you screw up. Something interesting was water shooting up at least a foot out of the drain holes on fast rides. We had one near ender on the outer bar where the nose stuffed but rose back out, and one on the inner bar where we tumbled out almost vertically when it met the bottom.

My novice paddler wife has also enjoyed surfing the boat in smaller swells, and my kids have enjoyed swimming off and on of it - it is very stable and they had no problems standing up, jumping into the water, and then climbing back on. It is really a cool boat.

The only similar boat I'd paddled before was an Ocean Kayak Malibu Two - overall I like this one much better mainly due to its better maneuverability. I've not used the rudder any and really enjoy the ability to bring the back end around on a wave. It is also very forgiving sideways in a breaking wave - notably more so than the Malibu which I think was hampered by the big rear keel. In some soupy white breakers you can bring it around from a side surf to straighten out again.

Regarding the comment about not tracking without the skeg down, I'd just add that it depends on what you expect.
I'd originally planned to buy a Malibu Two XL, but ended up with this one after closer review.

Speed is relative - all sit-on-top tandems are slow (except maybe the Oceak Kayak Zest), and that slowness is due to their shortness and width. This boat did not feel notably more or less slow than the Ocean Kayak, though I'm used to fast boats.

The only negative I had was that the bow does not rise over waves as much as I'd like - it simply does not have enough buoyancy to avoid pinching off a chunk of any breaking wave as you paddle out. As such, even solo, it is not hard to fill the boat up when paddling out. It does drain pretty quickly. The boat is also pretty water tight - each day the boat was in a lot of breaking waves and at the end of the day we never had more than quart, and most days less than a pint. I think most of the leakage was due to the 3 hatches that are standard on the boat.

The stock seats are very comfortable, and the taco paddle holders work well. The bow one hits my right foot when I solo and I'll move it forward a little I think. The seat molding has more depth to it than the Malibu Two, so even solo with no outfitting I had no problem staying in the boat, even side surfing.

The rear wheel works well on hard surfaces and ok on packed sand. I bought a Wheeleez beach cart also, which we used extensively as we had probably 125 yards from parking to the beach.
Build quality seems good, and the boat is made in the US.

Overall, the boat fully meets my expectations and I'm very pleased with it.

Only demoed this kayak on...

Only demoed this kayak on a small lake. Tracking was terrible with the skeg up. Tracking with the tarpon 130t is straight on and you don't have to worry about the skegg!! Every stroke with the deuce the bow was bouncing left and right. With the skeg down it was straight on. In terms of speed and turning the deuce is no better the the Tarpon as it is advertised, in fact I would say the Tarpon even turns easier. 150 bucks less you get a better kayak all around with the Tarpon.

I rented both kayaks before I bought the Tarpon130t. I also own a Tarpon 140. Needed a tandem also. All sit-ons move slow...They push this deuce like it's faster across the water then other tandems, don't buy it, try it first.

Fairly new to kayak...

Fairly new to kayak ownership, but have rented several. After trying out a couple of demos, my wife and I decided to buy both the Deuce Coupe and the Versa Board. I also own a Wilderness Systems Ride 135. The Deuce is hands down the best of the three for nearly everything. It is very comfortable, holds 500lbs, and is a tandem or solo. We have moved the rear seat forward to the middle position and use it as a solo most of the time. It tracks very well with the skeg down, and with it up the maneuverability compared to the WS Ride is eye-opening. We are using it at the lake, but can't wait to get on a river. Lots of room for storage, but the only real con for me is no large hatch to store gear. I am on my way down to buy a second Deuce this week, since my wife has claimed the first one.
