If you’re a serious paddler then you need a serious boat, and that’s where the C-Trek 18 Expedition comes in. Designed by Rob Feloy for Sean Morley's solo UK & Ireland Expedition, the C-Trek 18 is perfectly suited to the stronger, heavier paddler who needs a high carrying capacity and fast cruising speed. The total maximum displacement is a whopping 180kg (paddler + boat + load) but even fully laden, it remains surprisingly maneuverable and quick.

The elegant, simple lines give you style without compromising performance. It remains stable and forgiving in rough conditions. Thanks to Kirton’s legendary build-quality and composite expertise, the rugged constructions are very reliable without being heavy.

The C-Trek 18 boasts an efficient hull form with a long waterline, making it fast and less prone to pitching. This means that you stay comfortable and dry (relatively speaking of course) even in challenging conditions.

Using the adjustable skeg, this well-rockered kayak can easily be trimmed for neutral cross-wind performance. An optional rudder can be fitted if more control is required.

The C-Trek 18 is a rugged workhorse for the stronger paddler, and the ultimate choice for weekend and serious expedition use.
