The design of the Brooklyn Kayak Company BKC SK287 Touring Kayak was directly inspired by the same kayaks that have plied Arctic waters for thousands of years. This nearly 15-foot long, 44-pound kayak is the perfect platform for a solo paddler who wants to safely and swiftly slice through all sorts of water conditions, from the calm of a still lake to the choppy seas of a bay or even the open ocean. Its cockpit offers more than enough size for most adult users, and with a weight capacity of 330 pounds, the SK287 single kayak can also accommodate enough food, water, and gear for long outings. Dual water-resistant storage hatches and a cargo area with bungee tie-downs help secure the supplies you need for any adventure.
The BKC SK287 Angler Solo Sit-In Travel Kayak comes with a collapsible paddle that will help propel you along at high speed, while a foot pedal-operated retractable rudder makes steering easy. The rotomolded HDPE hull is UV-protected and will last for years even with daily use, so go ahead and make this kayak your new go-to vessel for all-year, all-weather use. And if you’re a sea fisherman, make use of the pair of flush-mount paddle holders, too, which will help with trolling, still fishing, or with keeping your poles out of the way as you travel.
