Sea Eagle Announces New FastTrack Kayak
Three person performance kayak is Sea Eagle’s longest ever, and starts at just $1149
Port Jefferson, NY (PRWEB) January 6, 2011
Sea Eagle Boats, Inc. has announced the release of its largest kayak yet: the new high performance FastTrack 465ft. Designed to comfortably seat up to three serious open-water paddlers and accommodate up to 175 lbs, the expedition quality 465ft paddles faster and straighter than other inflatable kayaks. And by utilizing a new high tensile strength lightweight fabric, the FastTrack 465ft also weighs less than other inflatables in its class.
Make like its predecessor — the smaller 385ft model — the FastTrack 465ft utilizes a series of innovations which make it distinct from the traditional inflatable kayak. Its unique design incorporates a rigid, drop-stitch inflatable keel into the bow of the kayak, as well as a large removable skeg in the stern. Described as a “breakthough in the evolution of inflatable kayaks,” these features combine to limit the “yaw”–or sideways motion–of the kayak, when paddling. This fores the kayak to go faster and straighter. Additionally, the rear skeg can be removed, making the FastTrack suitable for use in up to Class III rapids.
A high pressure drop-stitch floor also sets the FastTrack apart from other inflatable kayaks. The floor not only increases the rigidity of the FastTrack–and efficiency of paddle strokes–but also makes the kayak rigid enough to be used as a stand up paddleboard. The kayak’s most defining factor, however, is its size. At 15′ long and 36″ wide, the FastTrack 465ft is Sea Eagle’s largest kayak to date. A 10″ tube diameter also guarantees that the 465ft’s narrow, aerodynamic shape does not sacrifice interior space and comfort. With a 795 lbs. load capacity, the 465ft can easily hold all the essential gear needed for a memorable expedition. Suggested retail of the Sea Eagle FastTrack 465ft with two paddles, pump & nylon carry bag starts at just $1149.
Since 1968, Sea Eagle has sold inflatable boats and kayaks of its own design. An emphasis on superior materials and high quality accessories make Sea Eagle boats great for fishing, camping exploring, and many other outdoor activities. Today, Sea Eagle’s lineup is wider than ever, including 7 models of different inflatable kayaks, 3 models of pontoon fishing boats, a sailing catamaran, motormount boats and four transom boats taking up to 40 HP engines.
