First of all, Jara is a fast touring kayak…but it’s also a mix of many ideas. These kayaks come in two sizes, depending on your needs, or how much stuff you want to bring along. Or maybe you want to have a workout boat that also can take some gear in a while? They both have the same Swedeform shaped hull with a hard chin and with a fine entry through the water with its smooth shape of the bow. The more volume in the rear also makes it easy to catch the surf and gain a lot of speed downwind.
First of al it’s a skeg-boat, but if you prefer a rudder it will also respond well. It also feastures a hard chined shallow V-shaped hull. It has the same deck layout as on our “Husky” or “Big Dog”. It’s easy to roll, low aft deck. It features stainless steel rods for a towing system or for roof rack security plus has multiple decklines for all of your gear. Our challenge was to create a fast but maneuverable kayak with good stability. Make sure to try one out!
