Current Design's Altura is a sit-on-top (SOT) kayak which is extremely stable. It is 15 feet long, so it tracks very true and is fast. The Fiberglass/Kevlar construction today would be a $2500 - $3000 kayak. Due to the light weight of only 55 lbs. and its construction techniques the Altura is super stable, but also noticeably faster and more efficient than most SOT fishing kayaks, plus due to the composite materials it is much lighter than any comparable rotomolded model. Other features include: two rear built-in fishing rod holders, a forward-facing rod holder, the aft deck has a large open well to hold a large tackle box or cooler, dry storage just behind the seat and also in the bow, front/back and side carry handles, self-bailing cockpit, padded seat, adjustable back rest, adjustable foot brace (also used to steer rudder), cord to lift / lower
rudder from seat, rudder to assist steering, anchor trolly line, recessed paddle parks and secured drink holder. SPECIAL NOTE: unlike some SOT kayaks, if you get seated dry you will stay dry in the Altura (unless of course you tip or have water come over the top). I have kayaked some SOT kayaks where you will be sitting in water all day long as water continually comes up through the scupper holes. No scupper plugs needed with the Altura!

** Sorry - just noticed the seat is not in the kayak when pictures where taken, but be assured I do have it, and all is fine with the seat.

TRAILER: $400.00
The pictured trailer is also for sale, I however will not sell this prior to selling the kayak. Trailer includes inside lockable
storage in both the front and rear. One spare tire included. If buyer of the kayak is also interested in the trailer, I will sell the trailer to that individual for $350.00. Otherwise, firm on price and cash only. NO TEXT PLEASE.
