SPECIAL OFFER! Aquaglide Chelan One (one-person) Inflatable Kayak. Great quality and superbly designed, with one outstanding feature that's unfortunately not immediately obvious in the shop or at the slipway: high pressure inflatable floors, made from a special dropstitch fabric. This type of floor can be inflated up to 12psi, rather than the 2psi (or even less) that you get with most cheaper models. As you might imagine, that makes the Chelan inflatable kayaks far more rigid than most others; you simply don't get the "saggy bottom" inflatable kayak characteristic we see so often out on the water. They stay the shape the designer intended, all day long.
That is not the only feature of the Aquaglide Columbia kayaks, but it is the one that makes the most difference in the water. You may also have noticed that they have much more "pointy ends" than most inflatable kayaks; that helps by reducing the tendency to get blown or knocked off course by wind and waves. They also have an excellent, easy-to-use skeg system, which again helps you keep going in a straight line.
The Chelan is also single-skin construction, made from tough reinforced mesh fabric like that used to make RIBs. Not only is it very strong, but it's also much easier to dry after use than the "double-skin" construction (think rubber ring inside boat-shaped bag) used by most cheaper inflatable kayaks.
Then there are all the little features like:
- padded, adjustable angle seat that will keep you comfortable all day
- generous backpack makes it easy to carry, and get the boat back in the bag
The ONE model (TWO and TANDEM also available) is designed to take one adult weighing anything up to 250-lb. Assembled the kayak is 10ft 6" long, 3ft wide and weighs 35-lb. Included as standard are: PRO-Formance seat; Quick-Release Fin/Skeg; Foot Rest; Repair Kit; generously-sized backpack/storage bag (so you can actually get it back in the bag afterwards!).
RRP for the Chelan One is £939, our price for the boat only is £845, or for a package including paddle and pump £925, both while stocks last.
You will also need, if you don't already have:
- a high pressure pump with correct fitting to inflate floor, our price £45
- a paddle, preferably one that fits inside the bag. To this end we sell a nice four-piece one with asymmetric blades at £40.
One each of the above is included in the package price, plus UK delivery.
