Performance by well-designed construction

Marlin Activ is well designed construction details with a modern Swede Form hull ensure that the paddlers can enjoy efficient and relaxed performances and experiences in varied and rough conditions. The Marlin is mainly designed for expedition use and kayakers who paddle both in calm and rough waters, carry out long distances and have the need for real capacity of carrying expedition loads. Moreover it offers superior performance for those who feel comfortable to paddle with rudder and enjoy the supper easy and quick maneuverability which the Kajak-Sport Activ rudder offers. The Marlin fits best for medium and large size paddlers and they find the cockpit area as a real jewel. Even small paddlers that carry heavy loads find the Marlin fun and easy to use.

Available in three lay-up options

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

Extra Rigid (XR) is made of vinylester/carbon/Kevlar/glass fiber and diolen.

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

Traditional lay-up is like the classic Skim yet with more reinforcement and therefore more rigid. Extra rigid is as expected even more rigid and nearly bomb proof. 
Carbon light has the same rigidness as the XR, but is by far the most lightweight lay up of the three.
