Manufacturer's Description

The Kiwassa 12.6 is the latest David Yost design and is a crossover between our recreational Adirondack kayaks and our sport Saranac kayaks. It has a mid-sized cockpit shape, generous rocker and pleasing shape.

The Kiwassa tracks yet maneuvers quite easily when leaned. It has flush-mounted hatches and is available with a skeg or rudder. We feel this will become one of our most popular models in short order.
