ACK Review: The Ultimate 14.5 is a great tandem kayak because of its outstanding stability, roomy cockpit and comfortable seating. Still paddles great when set up for a single expedition.

Customer Reviews

My wife and I love this boat. The seats are very comfortable and we can easily fit our 2 year old between us. The boat is amazingly stable, yet it tracks and turns well and is fast enough. The draft is shallow enough to explore interesting swamps. The solo configuration works well, although the wide beam at the center makes double balded paddling just a bit awkward. Great platform for photography!
This is an excellent set-up for fishing. I use it in the solo configuration and have more room than I would ever need. It is very stable; I stand up to fly fish easily (even wearing waders and boots). It paddles well with a 240cm paddle. To sum it up; on my last fishing trip,I let my buddy paddle it around for a few minutes (he was paddling my old 12' perception caster). After a few minutes, he says "Well, now I see why you are paddling so much faster than me and seem more comfortable!"
My wife and I and our Yorkie pup demo'ed the 14.5 tandem in Poly at a kayak expo a couple of weeks ago. We were looking for something to replace our "serious" sea kayaks...a venture which did not work out for us. GOOD POINTS: 1. The seats! If you have any sort of lower back issues, or tend to get a sore butt, these are the answer. Nothing I've found in a kayak compares. 2. Maneuverability. I was able to turn this boat with both of us in it with no more effort than I needed for my solo kayak. 3. Tracking. We were out in a pretty stiff breeze, and I had NO trouble holding a heading. 4. Room. There was PLENTY of space in between the seats, and in the front and rear of the boat for coolers, gear, etc. THE DOWNSIDE: Weight. 74 pounds (60 pounds with seats removed) is just too much for the two of us to get the boat up and down from the Yakima rack on top of our Honda Element. We are waiting for the (35 pound hull only) Tegris 14.5 to hit the dealer to evaluate that one.
