World’s Most Expensive Kayak Launched in New Zealand

Kayak 1 launched by New Zealand designers Jamie McLellan and Andy Jacobs is poised to become the world’s most expensive kayak. It is the most appropriate time for the launch of a kayak as the summer will be with us soon. The outdoor activities will increase and if you enjoy exploring the calmer waters then you should do it in a kayak. The Kayak 1 is the first product from the McLellan Jacobs team and it is a lightweight, single person recreational kayak. It is a special kayak which is ultra light but tough and durable. The vessel has been built in New Zealand by America’s Cup Boat builers and has been made using carbon fibre as the basic material. The detailing is done in timer by the highly regarded furniture makers in New Zealand.
The Kayak Weighs Only 40Lbs But is Built to Last
The hardware used is crafted out of brass and plated with gold. The standard model will have a glossy carbon finish but there are options available for a bespoke finish in any colour and detailing in alternative materials to suit your preferences. The design and the styling of the kayak is very traditional and conforms to the established nautical designs and styling. However, it has a very contemporary look because of the choice of modern materials and craftsmanship. The lightweight kayak weighs only 40 lbs but is built to last long. The super rich are sure to have this toy on their shopping list this summer.

The Designer Team is Offering a Truly Bespoke Product
The Kayak 1 has been designed for easy handling in the water. The top class finishing makes it look very attractive. The makers have used Durepox HP Clear primer and DuPoint Chroma clear for top coat. If you have a different choice you may specify it and the kayak can be turned out according to your specifications and preferences. You can also specify your choices in case of hardware and timber used in the kayak. The team of New Zealand designers are prepared to offer a truly bespoke product. And perhaps that is the reason why the makers have not declared a standard price list. It will be declared individually on enquiry. You may visit their site for further details and for ordering your Kayak 1.
