Limited time offer: Price currently includes Free C-Kayak PaddleUpon entry into the market this beautiful craft quickly became our overall bestselling sea kayak and has maintained this status for the past several years.
Now also available in a Low Volume version, for smaller paddlers, the Prilite Marlin LV.
Why is this? Firstly it is (as with all Prijon kayaks) unbelievably comfortable to paddle. The adjustable Prijon seat and thigh braces allow you to achieve maximum comfort for those longer trips.
It is fast yet stable! The Prilite Marlin is surprisingly stable for a boat just 58cm wide. The hard chines allow for plenty of edging on sharp turns, without feeling that you are going to capsize.
Lightweight but durable. Prilite (thermoformed) plastic is the kayak technology of the future. Over the past decade we have seen this kind of material represent from 0% to now over 50% of our total sales (other brands such as Hurricane and Riot use similar material). The consistency of the thickness of this plastic when formed allows the kayak to be considerably lighter than its polyethylene counterparts, while remaining reasonably durable (not as malleable as polyethylene but stiffer). Thermoformed plastic retains its shape better than polyethylene and so the hull is less likely to become indented over time (from sitting on roof racks etc). The Prilite Marlin is as light as but less brittle than its composite counterparts, making it a very attractive overall package.
Immaculate finish and trims, deck mounted day-hatch and nose cap for added strength are just a few of the features that make this a winning combination.
No, the Prilite Marlin is not for everybody. It does not really suit people over 100kg. Also, it is not an extreme sea kayak. It will suit 95% of people looking to get into sea kayaking, or upgrading from something more basic, but it is definitely not for those looking to push the boundaries of exploration.
