Romany Sportive (RM)

This kayak is an excellent choice for the decerning rockhopper and day tourer. The plastic is very strong stiff linear plastic, with double bulkheads either side of the cockpit. Designed for the small to medium sized paddler upto around 75kgs.

It feels as stiff as a composite kayak, it definitely lacks the bouncy flex associated with most rotomoulded kayaks, with its strong single skin its still relatively light to carry, this kayak will impress seasoned kayakers and novices alike.

This is the all new Romany Sportive, completely new design, and eagerly anticipated big hit with rockhoppers designed to be the smaller sister of the Romany Sport (RM) and having paddled it at the recent dealers meet I can assure you that one of the 6 that I have on pre-order is mine, keep an eye on the page for when it arrives here and be one of the first in the world to paddle this remarkable little romany.

Available in the following colours:


these boat stock have a set coloured rim and seat but these are interchangable at no cost, Southern Sea Kayaks has chosen to sell all boats that are pre ordered with black rims and seats.
