Necky Kayak Eliza

$1895.00 - $3750.00 CAD
  • Product Number: 950048BLR


The Eliza is specifically designed for women, where its narrower dimensions and shorter length make it easier to handle and a better fit. The boat has been very popular at Wilderness Supply, where smaller male paddlers have also find the Eliza a better fit and therefore much more enjoyable to paddle. The Eliza is a fully capable touring boat, with plenty of cargo space in the two hatches.

Named after an island in Washington State’s San Juan Islands, our women's kayak feels so good you never want to get out of it. Its compact cockpit makes you feel secure and firmly in control.

Notes ffrom the Designer:

"The Eliza is the culmination of input from many women paddlers of varying skill levels. We even consulted with a women physician paddler on cockpit ergonomics. The data was clear; women want comfort, lightweight, ease of paddling, and attractive looks. These are boats that not only fit women up to approximately 160 lbs., but are designed to be very efficient at touring speeds. The chine and rocker profiles combined with a slight V hull create a balance of stability, straight tracking, maneuverability, and low drag. They have excellent manners in wind and waves from any angle, and surf following seas very well. Add to that, simple cockpit designs shaped for women a comfortable seat, a supportive back band, and sensible outfitting, and women have two new options that will help them go farther in comfort, with less effort!"
