Brief Description 

CD is back in the game! Current Designs continues to be decades ahead of others in terms of composite kayak and canoe construction (same factory as Wenona), but it's been years since they designed a kayak for the high end performance paddler. The new Prana touring kayak is the 1st collaborative effort between Danish designer Jesper Kromann-Andersen and Current Designs. Think - latest in fast, efficient, maneuverable sea kayak hull design and Brit style deck features meets the industry leader in light and high quality kayak construction. Beautiful inside and out and made right here in the USA (American flag on rear deck included).

Deceivingly fast, maneuverable, and light! Offered in two sizes Prana and Prana LV.


Detailed Description

Prana is a game changer, if you own a heavy sea kayak you've got to try the Prana. It's versatile, fast, and both a great day tripper and playful expedition kayak. Available in fiberglass or Kevlar layups (and nobody builds Kevlar kayaks better than CD). Prana is a quick and highly maneuverable kayak, with an efficient shape that blasts through the miles. The hull is more stable than its 21 inch beam would lead you to expect, while a hybrid chine and rocker profile makes this 17 foot touring kayak great for all conditions. The Prana comes standard with three bulkheads and four hatches (fore and aft day hatches, fore and aft large storage hatches) and a full accompaniment of safety and comfort features.
