The Finisterre is a modern UK style sea kayak, available in two sizes to fit a range of paddlers.
The Finisterre 16 is the smaller version, a shorter, narrower kayak with a lower deck line to suit smaller paddlers.
The design emphasis is for a playful, rough water sea kayak, manoeuvrable with good stability and seaworthiness. More of a “day boat” than “expedition kayak” but with ample carrying capacity.
The novice will find the “Finisterre” stable and predictable to allow them to hone their skills, the experienced paddler will enjoy the performance and manoeuvrability. The Finisterre is an easy kayak to edge turn, predictable in surf and happy rock hopping or playing in tide races.
The “fish form” hull has a flat mid section with hard chines and a lot of rocker. An adjustable skeg is fitted as standard allowing the Finisterre to be neutrally trimmed in cross wind conditions.
The high foredeck and key hole cockpit with adjustable seat and thigh braces gives a comfortable paddling position.
A three bulkhead, four hatch lay out including aft day hatch, cockpit “day box” large round and oval main stowage hatches. The “day box” forward of the cockpit for convenient and secure stowage of radio, phone, keys etc. All hatches used are “KajakSport”, we believe the most watertight and durable on the market.
Ample deck lines and bungees for storage of spare paddles and gear. Comfortable carry handles fore and aft.
