Prana 17' Kayak - In Stock

$3,750.00

A collaborative effort between Danish designer Jesper Kromann-Andersen and Current Designs award-winning team, the new Prana 17' kayak is designed for quick and efficient touring without sacrificing maneuverability and playfulness. The hull is more stable than its svelte 21 inch beam would lead you to expect, making it a surprisingly beginner-friendly kayak that leaves so much room for growth you'll never grow out of it. A hybrid hard chine and tracking-friendly rocker profile makes this 17 foot touring kayak perfect for all conditions. The low aft deck making self recovery safe and effective, while the roomier foredeck gives more height for your knees, making extended days of paddling much more comfortable. Available in fiberglass and Kevlar layups, the Prana comes standard with both fore and aft day hatches, fore and aft large hatches and a full accompaniment of safety and comfort. Also available in a LV (low-volume) version.

General Information:
Swede Form: Widest behind the cockpit, Swede form has a cleaner, longer, and more slender entry, giving efficient touring speeds and maneuverability. In shorter lengths these kayaks are very responsive. Longer kayaks with this feature have amazing acceleration and track well. Because of the narrow bow they may punch through a steep wave, rather than ride over it.
Hull Form
Hard Chine: A hard chine kayak has a well defined edge where the hull bottom meets the sides. This increases the initial stability greatly. Hard chines give defined edging angles and assist in holding an edge.

Shallow V: The “V” shape improves tracking, has a lively feel and delivers very comfortable stability.

Hull Shape
Touring Cockpit: Touring cockpits are somewhat small to help resist imploding of the spray skirt if hit by a large wave in rough water. They include built-in thigh braces on the cockpit rim to maximize control when edging and rolling. They range from 29” to 35” long, depending on the model.
