Product Description and Specs

The Perception Essence 16.5 sea kayak was designed for the smaller paddler looking to take a longer journey in any kind of sea conditions. The Essence focuses on efficiency, tracking and stability to provide a paddler with a boat that is very predictable in all conditions. It has a moderately soft-chined hull that allows great edge control and turning. It comes with a drop skeg, and can also be easily fitted with a rudder. The Essence comes in two sizes: a 16.5 for smaller paddlers, and the 17.0 for larger paddlers. The cockpit outfitting incorporates the new Zone outfitting for maximum adjustability and comfort right off the showroom floor. Go have some fun with her!
