Whether you're just graduating to sea kayaking or have been paddling open water for years, the performance of the Eddyline Fathom is sure to please any paddler, regardless of skill level.
Smooth, swift and elegant, the Eddyline Fathom kayak moves through ocean waters like it's a part of the natural environment. Designed to please both experienced paddlers and aspiring novices, the Eddyline Fathom features a good amount of initial stability to build confidence on multiday excursions. What really stands out about the Fathom is the quality construction that offers the looks and performance of a composite kayak with the durability of a plastic hull. Co-extruded ABS laminate creates a hull that rivals the qualities of fiberglass-Eddyline calls it Carbonlite 2000. Plastic is first shaped into a 2-layer sheet with durable interior and a an abrasion- and UV-resistant exterior. Then the sheet is thermoformed into the hull of the kayak using very high temperatures and a vacuum. This 2-layer plastic laminate offers incredible stiffness and a hard, glossy appearance that resists abrasion and impact. Because the hull is plastic, it can also be easily repaired. Hard chines midship and healthy degree of rocker enhance secondary stability. High secondary stability makes it easy to lean into edged turns and execute very tight turns. Full-volume front deck offers enough room for large paddlers, and the countoured thigh braces offer a secure fit for any size paddler. Sliding seat adjusts in relation to the thighbraces to enhance comfort. Low back deck makes it easy to execute a roll. Skeg is deployable in small increments to allow for fine-tuning in any condition. The Eddyline Fathom also features bulkheads, a recessed compass holder, and 3 day hatches with enough space to easily pack in overnight gear and then some.
