Description

Incept's K37 Mohaka tandem inflatable kayak is a New Zealand-made kayak intended mainly for rental and livery use. In other words it falls into the "stable" and "mid-performance" category much like the AIRE Outfitter tandem. It will outhandle a number of other two person models but not more nimble boats like the Tributary Strike II. It measures a full 3-1/2 feet wide, so that keeps it from being in the high end of the performance range. For now, due to very uneven exchange rates between the U.S. and New Zealand, the pricing on all Incept kayaks is too high for us to bother stocking them, but when that situation changes we will bring them back into inventory. For now they are special order only.

As with Incept's self bailing rafts, the K37 has a very smoothly curved bottom from both the end and side view, so the current slides past the hull easily without moving the boat around. There is no longer a one-person Incept kayak being produced. Incepts are welded PVC inflatables made with fabric from a very hard-finish, high air retention grade of material. The K37 is a forgiving tandem boat that still makes reasonable time on the flat sections. The backrests are are small-ish fixed position thwarts that are not comfortable on multiday jaunts, but our Backsavers or any Crazy Creek type camp chair will rest against them. You can face the opposite direction with your back against what would normally be the "front" thwart for solo paddling. The boat features four pairs of stainless D-rings for thighstrap attachment, hard urethane nose cones, Halkey-Roberts valves, lifelines (which may get in the way when you're paddling, but they are removable), black urethane bottom chafers under the main tubes, and two big stainless D-rings/handles front & rear. The Mohaka is 12'6" long and has 12.5" side tubes. It weighs a fairly low 39 pounds and red is the default color, though sometimes yellow, blue, or gray are available. $2,595

There are a few small attachments and D-rings on the K-37 that are glued to the hull. Given enough time, these will come unglued. Re-adhering them takes some man hours because the old glue needs to be carefully dremeled off first. PLEASE NOTE THAT YOU NEED TO CALL OR EMAIL FOR AVAILABILITY FIRST ON THIS MODEL BEFORE USING THE SHOPPING CART - WE DO NOT KEEP IT IN STOCK.
