Many kayakers prefer shorter boats, but the available options lack the desired performance offered by a longer hull. The Kiwassa 13.2 is the ultimate compromise. Combining the agility of a short playboat with the glide of a sport touring boat, the Kiwassa13.2 is limber and lively like a shorter boat, and smooth and strong like a larger boat.

S-glass and Kevlar cloth sandwiching marine foam core. Laminate fused with Epoxy Vinylester Resin.
Light and stiff - My Kiwassa is the kevlar model, consequently it weighs just 34 pounds. The collar inside the cockpit is well padded which allows me to shoulder the boat for a well-balanced and easy carry to the water. I did get one with a drop-down skeg which helps tremendously in a crosswind. Plenty of dry storage fore and aft for some dry towels, lunch, etc.. . All of my paddling is in the Finger Lakes of Central New York where boat traffic can be busy, even during dusk and dawn, so I did add some Navisafe LED running lights (attached with velcro), Night time paddling is one of life's greatest experiences. We own three other boats, but this Kiwassa is my personal favorite. Kozmo 18
