- New kayak family introduced - Neris SMART range
A unique hybrid range of
foldable boats - a cross between folding kayaks and inflatable kayaks. The boat hull is the same as in folding kayaks, with the side walls the same as in inflatable kayaks! Use as a kayak with normal floor seats and double bladed paddles, or as a canoe with raised bench seats using single bladed paddles. The frame comprises of only a central keelson and cross ribs which means a quick assembly time of 7 minutes and a rigid hull. The boat tracks well, thanks to the sharp chines in the hull. The inflatable elements provides buoyancy and the boat will still float should there be an air leak as the cross ribs will holds the sides up, enough to assist with the recovery back to shore. The SMART-2 is also can be used as a single seater.
The first batch of SMART's will be the kayak version only, with the kayak/canoe version being available from September / October onwards.
A sailing version of the SMART-2 & 3 using an "A" frame Genaker sail rig will be available later in 2017.
