Rónán Kit Description

The Ronan is a more spacious version of the Selkie, which is a lightweight, hard-chined marriage of two other popular Pygmy boats (the Arctic Tern 14 and the Murrelet). While 3” longer than the Arctic Tern 14, the underwater hull is identical, giving it the same efficiency in cruising due to low wetted surface area. Like the Selkie, the Ronan features a low sheer line with cutaway side deck panels that allow more body rotation and a more efficient use of a Greenland paddle. The major difference between it and the Selkie is its higher hull sheer height and larger cockpit, which allow larger paddlers the space needed for ease of entry and exit. The Ronan’s front cockpit height is 11.5” while the Selkie is 9.75”. The rear cockpit height on the Ronan comes in at 7.25” while the Selkie sits at 6.21”. Its dramatically low rear cockpit height makes layback rolls effortless. This kayak is designed for playful paddling in rough water. Experienced paddlers will love this low volume beauty in dynamic water, surf or as a lightweight day paddler.
