DESIGN STATEMENT:
Unlike other boats of this length, the S14 has the speed of a much longer boat, but beginners can feel comfortable paddling it too. The long, fair hull lines create an efficient hull conserving your speed and energy, while the retractable skeg in the stern aides with tracking. Large bow and stern storage compartments, with watertight bulkheads, keep your gear dry for day trips or longer tours. The cockpit is long enough for those who prefer fitness paddling with straight legs, for paddlers with a height range of 5 5-6 7. The neoprene seat pad provides comfort for longer trips. The S14s short length and light weight make it ideal for those who want a high performance boat, but are short on storage space or frequently cartop their boat. The S14 is available in four lightweight constructions, from fiberglass to carbon, to fit your needs and budget.
