RIP Necky

From the Necky Facebook Page:

"The time has come to say farewell to the Necky brand, but this isn't goodbye! The journey continues with our OId Town genuine watercraft brand, as it is expanding to a more diverse line of products, including an all new lineup of touring kayaks, high quality paddles and PFDs (launching this summer)!

If you have any questions concerning your Necky products, feel free to send us a message, or you can email us at

Thank you for the many years of love and good times. Happy paddling!"
