Is this a fast paddling sit-on-top for fun day trips? Or maybe a seaworthy self bailing craft capable of carrying overnight gear? Maybe it’s a second kayak for friends to come along on birding or fishing trips. Or possibly a kayak for the person that wants to do a lot of paddling, but wants to keep their options open for fishing. Or maybe the person looking for a super-functional fishing craft with stand up capability and a high-low seat – but at a budget price range.
The answer to all these questions is YES! The Cruise is an amazing Jack-of-all-Trades kayak that can accomplish a myriad of different jobs. The hull below the water line is just like the ultra popular Cuda 12. Stand up capable – but fast enough to be an all-around recreational paddling craft. The deck is simple – but not basic. You still benefit from the high-low Jackson seat that is among the most comfortable in the industry. The deck is simple, uncluttered and wide enough for stand up paddling and fishing. The tank well will hold an ice chest or overnight gear.
A true swiss army knife of kayaks – this one will do it all!
