This 12 ft recreational kayak is perfect for outings along the Intercoastal waterways, bays, sound, streams and lakes. It tracks extremely well and has speed comparable to longer kayaks. And at only 41 lbs, it’s easy to transport and store. Beam is only 26”, great for a shorter paddler, and it has great stability. Plenty of storage and air chambers fore and aft for extra safety. The Skylark also gets lots of attention from fellow paddlers for its sleek appearance. Performance, comfort, safety and attractive; 9 months into ownership and this 60+ woman has enjoyed every moment spent on the water.
