The Whisky16 Tourer (limited quantity and orange only) has a lower rocker than the Whisky16 Rocker which gives the kayak more speed and tracking which is ideal for touring.
Even so, an absolute novice feels like Nigel Foster in the cockpit of a Whisky16. On gentle waters the boat is comfortable, stable, and easily manoeuvred – an ideal boat to develop skills.
For the experienced paddler, the Whisky16 Rocker is perfect for getting in and out of rocky outcrops, surfing on tidal races or manoeuvring. With its fuller bow and stern shape to reduce plunging, the Whisky 16 is designed to make the most of rough water, surf, and currents. It is perfect for day trips but spacious enough for a self-contained expedition paddling.
Featuring hard chine along the whole length of the hull for increased stability and maneuverability.
