Perception Carolina 14.0 Kayak - The Carolina 14.0 by Perception is steeped in sea kayak tradition, making it the most popular day-touring boat in the world. The v-shaped hull and soft chines improve stability and performance, inspiring confidence in a variety of conditions. Inside, Zone DLX outfitting means ultimate comfort and fit while out cruising. A large cockpit allows for easy entry and exit. Bow and stern deck rigging makes it easy to secure smaller items above-deck, and watertight hatches with bulkheads keep larger gear protected. There’s plenty of room for living luxuriously on the weekend. With the Perception Carolina 14.0 touring kayak, a little can take you a long way.

Note: Each multicolor boat is unique, and color patterns vary boat to boat.

Why a Rudder? - A kayak rudder can aid your steering in high winds or currents. If you are paddling in ever-changing weather conditions, consider adding a rudder to your kayak.

Why two different sizes? The Carolina 12.0 has a comfortable roomy cockpit and fits just about anyone. It is stable and easy to turn. The Carolina 14.0 is just as comfortable but has faster hull speed for those wanting to go farther! Questions about which size is right for you? Talk to an Outdoorplay paddling specialist at 800.994.4327, Mon-Fri from 7am to 5pm Pacific time.

    Shopping Info

    This is a great kayak plain and simple. I am a big guy at 230 pounds yet there is plenty of room inside, and it is very easy to get in and out of. There is plenty of storage and it has a nice little area behind the seat to stow stuff. The seat is very comfortable and also very adjustable. One caveat though, I took mine out yesterday for the first time in strong 20+ mph winds. It tracked well into the wind and even sideways but when the wind was behind me I had to constantly fight to keep it from turning broadside. I just ordered the rudder for mine. If you are in a windy area like I am, I highly suggest getting the rudder too. All in all I am very happy with my new boat and very pleased with Outdoorplay. They did an excellent job of packing it for shipping and it arrived very quickly.

    I was looking for a boat that would be capable enough for coastal sea kayaking yet small enough for use on rivers and with enough dry storage for overnight camping. The Carolina 14 fit the bill perfectly. The boat was reworked for 2007, and now has front and rear hatches and more then adequate tie downs. The seat was also completely changed. The Carolina 14 now sports the “Zone multi adjust outfitting system.” This means, that you get a padded seat with an adjustable backrest. The backrest is adjustable from a ratchet system on the side. The boat handles very well. It is stable yet quick. I have taken this boat from Esker Point in Connecticut to Fisher’s Island, NY and crossed the nearly two miles of open sound with ease. It even handled the boat wakes well. I have also used it to kayak camp overnight in the Boston Harbor, NP. The storage compartments are large enough for a overnight if you travel light. I find the cockpit very comfortable. I chose this boat partly because of the open cockpit. The opening is not as large as on a recreational boat but big enough to give you room to move around. Overall I am very pleased with this boat and would recommend it to people of all abilities.

    This yak is so great! It fits like a glove, moves swiftly in the water, is very comfortable, and there are just too many things to say about it. I am new to kayaking and feel so stable in this boat that I push myself, and the boat, past my comfort zone. I love it and would recommend it to ANYONE! I have been researching and demoing boats for about 1-1.5 years. It was my first boat, and a big investment, and I wanted to make sure I got the boat that suited me the most. As soon as I slipped into this boat it was like magic. I am about 5'8 250lbs. I was worried about my weight being a problem, but it was wonderful. Not even an issue! I have been paddling it so much this season I can’t keep my paddle out of the water. It pays to do your homework!

    Very happy with this kayak. I'm on the lakes every chance I get. When you have the right equipment, the adventure is that much better! For anyone still undecided on what touring/recreational boat to get, let me help convince you that this is the way to go!
