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
