PaddleYak Swift Hybrid

The PaddleYak Swift Hybrid is PaddleYak's signature kayak and winner of a SABS Disa Design Excellence Award as well as a prestigious ITown Design Award. This is a professionally developed craft and a trendsetter because it provides both sit-on-top as well as traditional sit-in features. The Swift has a sit-on seat with effective self-draining scuppers, but the seat also has a protective coaming over it, which takes an optional sturdy neoprene sprayskirt. This makes it ideal for a wide range of conditions and applications. The craft has low free-board and a low stern, making for easy re-entry [or rather, remounting], a definite safety advantage over more traditional sea kayaks. The PY Swift also features a fine bow for slicing through the rough for fast touring. It is stable with a soft-V hull and comes standard with two screw hatches, adjustable footrests and PaddleYak's robust, twist and lock rudder.It has a cockpit indent for a water-bottle as well as an additional small inspection hatch. A neoprene sprayskirt is an optional extra. It is not essential. The craft comes standard in fibreglass, but is also available in carbon-fibre and Kevlar, at additional cost. It is moderate in size and weight and can be used as a racer, day-tripper, or overnight tourer. Its size [the same length as an Olympic K1 sprinting kayak] makes it suitable for not only the open sea, but also for lakes and open rivers. It is attractive and has already become a design classic, acknowledged by many. It was the kayak of choice in the Mozambique Sea Kayak Expedition 3000 and the Lake Malawi Extreme 1000 Expedition. The hybrid sit-in/sit-on concept was a world first: It not only offered kayakers an alternative to traditional sit-ins and modern sit-ons, but set a new trend itself. Why limit yourself? Enjoy your paddling in an award-winning, innovative classic; the PaddleYak Swift Hybrid Adventure Kayak. Some users call this the best kayak in the world. Many would agree.
