Playful with long range expedition features

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

Beaufort is like all Skim Kayaks build with the best material and components on the market and of superior quality and finish.

The Skim Beaufort is outfitted with the new and revolutionary Kayak-Sport paddle outrigger system, which is setting a new standard in safety components.

Available in three lay-up options

Traditional lay up (TR) uses polyester/diolen and fiber glass.

Rock Hopper (RH) – hull is vacuum infused Kevlar, directional glass and Carbon sandwich/vinylester. Deck is made of Kevlar reinforced glass/vinylester.

Carbon light (CL) – hull of carbon fiber sandwich with diolen resin with a deck constructed in fiberglass and vinylester.
