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 Current Designs Prana is a true game changer, the closest thing to a sea kayak that can do it all. This Prana is at home in all types of conditions, it is fast and playful on flat-water or in the coastal environment.

The Current Designs Prana is a quick and highly maneuverable kayak, with an efficient shape that chews through the miles. The hull is more stable than its svelte 21 inch beam would lead you to expect, while a hybrid hard chine and tracking-friendly rocker profile makes this 17 foot touring kayak a true "jack of all trades".

It is a super fun kayak – a hybrid sea kayak and play kayak! Its hull design inspires further exploration of edged turns as it’s so stable.

The Prana comes standard with three bulkheads and four hatches (fore and aft day hatches, fore and aft large storage hatches) and a full accompaniment of safety and comfort features.

Material / Lay-Up: Current Design's vacuum-bagged fiberglass laminate is a notch above most other fiberglass products on the market. Vacuum-bagging allows CD to select and place reinforcing materials to provide the optimal strength and stiffness properties without adding unnecessary weight. The result is a superbly crafted composite kayak that's impeccably finished inside and out. 

Standard Options

  • Composite Seam
  • Retractable Skeg
  • Composite Colors

Customize With Color: Any of Current Designs fifteen colors can be used for a custom deck, hull, cockpit coaming or seam stripe color by special order at no additional charge. Get creative and make your Current Designs Prana uniquely yours!

Design Features:

Swede Form: Widest behind the cockpit, Swede form has a cleaner, longer, and more slender entry, giving efficient touring speeds and maneuverability. In shorter lengths these kayaks are very responsive. Longer kayaks with this feature have amazing acceleration and track well. Because of the narrow bow they may punch through a steep wave, rather than ride over it.

Touring Cockpit: Touring cockpits are somewhat small to help resist imploding of the spray skirt if hit by a large wave in rough water. They include built-in thigh braces on the cockpit rim to maximize control when edging and rolling. They range from 29” to 35” long, depending on the model.

Hard Chine: A hard chine kayak has a well defined edge where the hull bottom meets the sides. This increases the initial stability greatly. Hard chines give defined edging angles and assist in holding an edge.

Shallow V: The “V” shape improves tracking, has a lively feel and delivers very comfortable stability
