Civet Cat K1 Description

Sleek, light and comfortable, the Civet Cat 51 accommodates a wide range of paddling abilities. Designed according to International Canoe Federation Touring specs, it is popular among adventure and marathon racers for its speed and manoeverability. It handles rough conditions with ease yet is equally manageable on flat lakes and winding rivers. For paddlers planning longer tours at a more leisurely pace, it glides freely and can be outfitted with bulkheads and hatches for light storage. With its cutaway front deck the paddle enters the water very close to the cockpit, reducing effort and enabling a high degree of paddling efficiency.
