The Whisky 16 is now available in
3-Layer ultra tough Polyethylene!
Designed by Nigel Foster, to be everything he looks for in a kayak - and more.
All you have to do is to try it – and you’re hooked. Even an absolute novice
feels like Nigel Foster in the cockpit of a Whisky 16. On gentle waters the
boat is comfortable, stable, and easily maneuvered – an ideal boat to develop
Rough waters – smooth paddling
For the experienced paddler it is the ultimate playboat. 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. The Whisky 16 comes into its
own for exploring narrow passages and negotiating awkward corners where nimble
turning is a delight.
The 3-layer Polyethylene construction gives the Whisky 16 stiffness and strength while
decreasing the weight. The Whisky 16 has two large oval aft and bow hatches, a
large round day hatch behind the cockpit for access to items while on the
water, and the Whisky-hatch, a smaller round hatch in front of the cockpit that
opens to an under-deck compartment.
The padded cockpit comes fitted with an ergonomically designed seat which
promotes an upright sitting position for power paddling. The keyhole cockpit provides the close contact needed for
rough-water play. The highly functional "Point
65 AIR-Backrest™" with its inflatable pump adjustment offers great
comfort and lumbar support.
The Whisky 16 3L is standard fitted with a retractable skeg and
footrests. The compass recess on the fore-deck accommodates a Brunto (or Silva) 70P compass which is
optional. The Whisky 16 3L is also available with the optional rudder control system.
