SHEARWATER DOUBLE Here’s a double kayak that combines the speed of a longer sea kayak with the convenience of a smaller boat. The hull is multi-chined and plumb ended, for a long waterline with minimal wetted surface. We borrowed the Shearwater kayak’s handsome deck geometry to fit two large cockpits and three big storage compartments while maintaining a sleek profile. The Shearwater Double is remarkably fast and comfortable. The grumpiest elite paddlers will enjoy its responsiveness and speed, while the solid stability and roomy cockpits will reassure beginners. Feedback has been ecstatic since the first of these shipped: It’s so fast! So comfy! Such a tight kit! So good-looking! Props to Eric Schade for a truly original and successful kayak design.
