Local Delivery

Kayaks and Stand Up Paddleboards are only available for in-store pickup or local delivery within the Puget Sound area of Western Washington. Delivery is available for free on new boat and board purchases of at least $1500 and within 30 miles of our Port Gamble, Washington store. A ferry surcharge may apply for deliveries to Seattle and the east side of Puget Sound. We do not have the ability to ship Kayaks or SUP's, other than inflatables, outside of Western Washington at this time.

The same geography which makes the Puget Sound area such a wonderful place to paddle, also makes it difficult for us to make deliveries. We all love riding the ferries, but they sure can get expensive! Deliveries to Seattle and the east side of Puget Sound on purchases under $3000 are subject to a ferry surcharge up to $60. See the map for approximate delivery radius. If you add the boat or board to your cart we have a shipping calculator which will show you if delivery is available for your address, and whether any charges will apply. If you are outside of this area or have any other special considerations you can give us a call at (360) 297-4659 and we will be happy to see what we can work out for you.

The ultra tough rotomolded model of the Kestrel 140 R is a solid boat at a budget conscious price.

The Kestrel 140 R trades just a little bit of maneuvering ability for increased efficiency, better tracking, greater stability, and gear storage capacity. A generously sized cockpit and Current Designs Revolution Seating System offer all day comfort. The Kestrel 140 R also sports a bow hatch and bulkhead allowing for plenty of storage and increased safety.

Great to keep at the cabin for the family, the Kestrel 140 R is perfect for the all around outdoorsmen as well. With the extra storage it can hold all the gear and tackle a float fisherman may need. Flattened side decks allow for easy rod holder mounting. And because it's made of polyethylene, it'll stand up to the shallow rocky river stretches without worry.



Recreational Cockpit
The Kestrel features recreational cockpits that are long enough that you can simply get in and sit down. They are un-restrictive and many new paddlers appreciate their roominess and versatility.
Revolution Seating System
This one-of-a-kind rotating axis seat gives unmatched full contact under-leg support. Quickly adjustable with a lever-lock system, you can customize the seats position for your personal paddling style and comfort level. Contoured plush foam padding cover the bottom and sides of the seat allowing for hours of luxurious paddling comfort.
Dimension Adjustable Seat Back
A fully articulating and height/angle adjustable back rest. This dynamic combination creates the most comfortable and ergonomically functional seating system ever seen.
Flip Lock Rear Hatch Cover
A simple and easy flip-to-open rear hatch cover makes storing your gear a breeze. The flip-locks and compression seal combine to make this cover very water resistant while keeping your gear readily accessible with just the flip of the levers.


Design Features:

  • Swede Form: Widest behind the cockpit with a cleaner, longer, and more slender entry, giving efficient touring speeds and maneuverability. Because of the narrow bow they may punch through a steep wave, rather than ride over it.
  • Soft Chine: A smooth transition from the bottom of the hull to the sides. Soft chines give smooth edging at unlimited angles. The majority of kayaks that we build have a soft chine.
  • Shallow V: The “V” hull shape improves tracking, has a lively feel and delivers very comfortable stability.
