Easy maneuverability with long range features

The Skim Beaufort Low Volume is a serious seaworthy kayak that combines a playful character with long range expedition features. Fully loaded the Beaufort LV will still be a stable easy maneuverable kayak with high cruising speeds. By using the newest design technologies the Skim design team has been able to find the ultimate balance between play and expedition a combination that has long been thought of as impossible.
