Kayak 1 is a stunning craft that may just be the most luxurious, single person, recreational kayak on the water today. It’s the result of a collaboration between designers Jamie McLellan and Andy Jacobs, Kayak 1 features a minimalist design fused with rich materials including carbon fiber provided by America’s Cup boat builders in New Zealand.
The boat also strikes a harmony between contemporary and traditional nautical materials and style. A gloss carbon finish stands in beautiful contrast to gold-plated brass ﬁttings, and the exquisite timber work is created by New Zealand’s most regarded furniture makers.
The Kayak 1 is a bespoken product; “made to suit” the requirements of the world’s most discerning kayaker.
