Molded in and padded thigh braces, along with a adjustable IR back, will allow for comfort on long paddles and the control to edge and maneuver the boat with performance.

Why should a paddler who enjoys day paddling and the occasional overnight camping trip have to paddle a kayak designed for multi day expeditions?

Our response can be found in the Mystic. A kayak with all the performance characteristics of a hybrid sea kayak complemented by the length and storage capacity of a kayak specfically designed for the "overnighter". Equally at home on open water or secluded bays, the Mystic's efficient, dry stable 14' hull allows this kayak to carve through the water with minimal resistance, leaving you plenty of energy, for around the campsite.

Designed in the U.K., the Montauk is a sleek, sea worthy and stable craft, the 22" beam combined with a moderately chined hull profile provides a high degree of initial stability, while allowing the paddler to lean the kayak when turning or carving down the face of a wave. The modified Greenland style bow and stern ensure that you stay dry in the harshest of conditions, while minimizing the effects of a beam wind and sea.

If you are looking to paddle for the weekend or circumnavigate Iceland the Montauk is the kayak for you.

Hull Design-

Shallow V. The shallow V hull is standard in all Impex Kayaks and it is this design that allows for the greater primary stability in our kayaks. We have found an excellent compromise between stability and performance that allows our kayaks to appeal to all ends of the ability spectrum.

Rocker- All Greenland style kayaks will have increased rocker, this what gives these boats the versatility that makes them special. Our High Performance Line has a flatter rocker, which gives it better hull speed and tracking for touring. The rocker is enough to turn with a paddle stroke on a lazy paddle, but get this boat on edge and it has the maneuverability to explore the tightest spots in the local creek or race confidently down the biggest wave face.

Chine-

Medium. A Medium Chine allows the kayak to have excellent secondary stability while edging the kayak, maintaining the comfort and stability that we all demand. This feature allows the paddler to edge the boat confidently to obtain a fast turn, without the potential of tripping over hard chine’s. Paddlers of all ability levels and explorers of all water conditions covet this design.

Rocker - The increased rocker of the Hatteras will give you noticeably more responsiveness than any model we've introduced in the past. A simple paddle stroke will be sufficient to get the boat around, this will give you the confidence to surf, explore and/or beach land with ease.

Chine-

Soft. The softer chine will allow you to get on edge and turn quickly when catching waves in surf, trying to catch swells in during tricky beach landings or maneuver through rock gardens

We are proud to introduce for the first time in composite lay up, the Outer Island - designed in 1995 by paddler/designer Jay Babina, with performance, rolling ability, low windage and speed as the main criteria. At 18 feet long, only 21 inches wide and with very little hull rocker, it has loads of speed for touring. It's low rear deck makes it a perfect fit for the beginner to the advanced Eskimo roller. Soft chines allow for graceful control between steady primary and secondary stability, allowing for increased success even when perfecting the most challenging Greenland rolls and braces. Whether you love this kayak for its sheer elegance, fast touring, or as a rolling machine, we promise you 'will' love it.

Shallow V - the shallow V hull is standard in all Impex Kayaks and it is this design that allows for the greater primary stability in our kayaks. We have found an excellent compromise between stability and performance that allows our kayaks to appeal to all ends of the ability spectrum.

Rocker - the flatter rocker of the Outer Island is what gives this kayak its amazing hull speed. Harder to turn in the tight spots due to the stiffer hull, it is certainly a compromise. However as your skills grow the Outer Island comes around with grace and you can never say enough about the speed.

Chine-

Soft. A Soft Chine, while still giving excellent stability on edge, allows for smooth transition from primary to secondary stability. It is this trait that allows for this kayak to be such an easy kayak in which to practice and master even the hardest traditional Greenland braces and rolls.

The rebirth of a classic. The Susquehanna has been the ultimate all-purpose sea kayak since the inception of Impex kayaks over 10 years ago. Redesigning with two large oval rubber hatches and an 8 in round day hatch, we have given paddles the confidence they demand. At 22 1/2 " wide this boat has amazing initial stability without giving up performance. The key to the Susquehanna's allure is the additional hull rocker. Easy maneuverability in a 16' 6" kayak appeals to both the entry level kayaker, as well as the big water paddler looking to surf with confidence. From tight wooded creeks to precision rock garden surfing, the Susquehanna has the ability to take on whatever mother nature can throw at it.
