Chatham 17: An ideal explorer built to minimize windage, the Chatham offers great maneuverability and superb rough water performance. The full-chined hull provides incredible stability for its width and quick response to edging and lean turns. Designed to inspire confidence, it allows you to push your limits and expand your comfort zone. A retractable skeg featuring kink-free Necky Wire, allows you to adjust the trim of your kayak in windy conditions, reducing fatigue and making a significant difference in your boat's ability to track. The outfitting is relaxed and roomy. Made of water-resistant durable molded foam, the seat is designed specifically to reduce pressure on your sciatic nerve. By actually improving blood, you'll be able to paddle longer distances without your feet and legs falling asleep. Adjustable backband, thigh braces and foot pedals allow you to further customize the fit. Three bulkheads and water-resistant Valley hatches complete the package. Optimized for long-distance exploration and multi-day trips, the Chatham truly excels at coastal exploration. Note: Each multicolor boat is unique, and color patterns vary boat to boat.

Carbon Swell Plus: Make waves with the Swell! This performance paddle is designed for a more relaxed low-angle stroke and crafted with the most discerning kayak devotee in mind. With a T-700 carbon fiber shaft the Swell provides amazing durability for the weight. Balanced and flutter-free composite blades further reduce weight so you can paddle longer with less fatigue. With the Telescoping Adjustable Ferrule, you can customize your paddling experience instantly. Set the feather angle of your blades to minimize wind resistance without causing wrist fatigue. Telescope the Swell to the ideal length for your paddling style and conditions. Perfect for anything from day trips to full-blown expeditions, the Swell offers ultimate performance for any serious paddler.

Tow Motion PFD: The Tow Motion is the Swiss army knife of PFD's. It offers the most comfortable fit available, and is configured in a way to accommodate the need for maximum storage capability and additional places to put things. The Tow Motion is tow belt ready, allowing one to easily transform this jacket in a rescue vest. Hand-shaped foam elements minimize the vest's profile, and the rugged Cordura shell will provide years of durability. A cross-chest cinch adjustment eliminates ride-up and fits the vest lower on the torso for full mobility, more effective buoyancy and additional comfort. Stretchy adjustable neoprene shoulders offer great comfort. Roomy pockets offer plenty of storage room. Strobe lash tabs and 3M reflective trim on both front and back increase visibility in low-light conditions. The Tow Motion adds functionality and convenience for any type of paddling.

Tropical Tour Skirt (1.4 Deck): This performance breathable skirt is constructed of waterproof/breathable fabric for the ultimate in comfort. All seams are sealed to further increase the waterproofing. Rim grip/safety slip technology keeps your skirt firmly in place while paddling, yet releases easily for exiting the boat. The adjustable stretch-nylon waist closure with removable suspenders fits virtually all paddlers, and the tensioned deck stay keeps the skirt taut. Ballistic nylon edging guards the skirt from paddling inflicted wear and tear. A mesh deck pocket keeps essentials close at hand.

  • Shopping Info

    My wife and I were new to kayaking. We spent about 6 weeks researching kayaks for the type of large river, lake, and coastal sea kayaking we planned to do. We took lessons, demo'd boats, attended demo days. Although, like anyone, we loved the look of the composite boats, we decided that we would buy poly models for cost reasons, although the durability of poly for novice kayakers was a plus. What we didn't want to do was buy a boat that our skills would outgrow in the 3-5 years we expected to own it. Considering the general rule of thumb about narrowness of beam and instability, we thought we'd be more comfortable in a wider beam boat. After "trying on" many boats, we both tended to like a snug cockpit that made us feel more attached to the kayak. We both loved the Chatham 17. Surprisingly, it's probably the narrowest beamed boat we paddled but it felt completely stable. The cockpit is also very snug while the foot pegs are long enough to accommodate my 6'2" frame. So we've been taking more lessons and paddling lakes and rivers nearly weekend since April. We've had no buyer's remorse. The Chatham 17 responds to every new skill we acquire and have been a delight. They can track well without the skeg and edge better than anything else we tried. They are a great compromise between kayak designs that are meant to go straight as an arrow and those that can turn but can't track. We've found windage to be minimal. It's not a high volume boat and is pretty low slung. Drop the skeg and you can handle a windy day. We love our Chatham 17's. I would recommend that you try one if your criteria for a boat are similar to ours.

    I have just bought a Chatham 17 in Sept. so have not had it that long but have had it out several times now on calm waters. I'm 6'5" and 225 lbs and I still fit in ok which surprised me, and have size 14 feet. My feet can not touch the front bulkhead unless I stretch as far as I can so it's not an issue. I upgraded from a Zoar Sport and it is a great upgrade. It is fairly low volume compared to the Zoar Sport but not good if you want to take it camping as the hatch space is small with the skeg box but since I'm not much of a camper there's not really a problem there. I found the thigh braces just got in my way and I removed them for better entry and exit. A smaller person might want to keep them though. I also was not keen on the rear bungee straps as that's where I like to strap in my PFD on calm waters and the way they have it makes it very difficult to do so. I found the skeg worked well but did not slide too easily so will try and lube it up (I think I got sand in there). You tend to not need it much other than in windy conditions though. And speaking of wind, I also found it weather-cocked in the wind. Maybe in time I'll get better acquainted with my new boat and that won't happen though. That's all I can think about for now.
