Our kayaks have been in storage the past 4-5 years, so we realized that we're really no longer kayakers. :-).

This is nearly identical to the Current Designs Vision 140, which retails for $2,250. The Kestrel is about 2" wider and 3" deeper than the Vision, so this kayak may be just a little more stable, but possibly a bit slower than the Vision.

Also, this is ABS/acrylic laminate - Thermoformed Composite System, TCS - NOT cheap, flimsy, flexible polyethylene (like most sit-on-top kayaks). It performs more like a fiberglass laminate kayak, but it's less delicate.

Our kayaks have always been stored indoors and/or under cover. This listing includes a NEW, $80 rear hatch cover (not shown in pics); the original cover had warped in the heat/sun, so I replaced it in 2024.

This listing ALSO includes a really nice Seals cockpit cover.

It's a little scuffed/scratched/smudged, but otherwise in great condition EXCEPT that the deck tie-down bungees and lines are a little stiff, brittle, inflexible; if you want to strap things down to the deck, you'll want to replace them. Current designs sells a complete set of replacement lines for $45.

See the included pictures to see the overall condition. Except for the deck lines, I would rate it "good"; probably 8.5 out of 10 condition.
