Chatham 17 Composite


Excels at navigating surf zones, rock gardens and convoluted "tide rips." Very full chine provides great stability and quick response to edging and lean turns.  

 The Necky Chatham 17 Kayak is an ideal coastal explorer with great maneuverability and superb rough water performance. The full-chined hull minimizes windage while increasing stability despite its narrow width, enabling the paddler to maneuver outside their comfort zone. Tracking is improved in windy conditions by deploying the drop skeg enhancing paddling efficiency so you can stay out longer. Optimized for long-distance exploration and multi-day trips, the Necky Chatham 17 Kayak truly excels at coastal exploration.
