With an open deck design, you can easily enter and exit the boat or utilize the optional single or double decks to convert your AdvancedFrame® Convertible from an open deck to a closed deck kayak in a matter of seconds.

Can be Paddled Solo or Tandem and is GREAT at Both:
Unlike most tandem kayaks, the AdvancedFrame Convertible Kayak has plenty of leg room for BOTH paddlers and adjustable seat straps so you can move forward or backwards to give your other paddler more room – you won’t be squashed up together with bent legs
The extra length allows you to paddle independently without crashing paddles – you don’t have to be paddling in sync, which means less arguments!
The solo seating position means you are perfectly balanced in the kayak – no drag and no wag.
Fast and Comfortable for Long Trips :
Extra long (over 4.5m) for speed so you can plan big adventures – this kayak really moves!
Your back is supported by the high back seat so you are comfortable all day
Your backside is cushioned by the low pressure inflatable floor reducing the risk of numbness
Plenty of on board storage space for gear, including camping equipment – the Convertible has a capacity of 249kg so you can really load it up
The optional Double Deck Conversion and Single Deck Conversion allow you to stay dry with the inflatable coaming and optional skirt – this is important for those adventurous souls who want to paddle the open ocean
Optional foot pegs or foot brace to assist paddling technique
Easy to Paddle Straight
Glide straight with the patented AdvancedFrame design – no waggling when you paddle
Built in fin to help you paddle straight
Low centre of gravity and a flat hull for effortless stability – this saves your strength and allows you to relax and enjoy the ride.
