Product Overview

The Expression 11.5 Sit-Inside Touring Kayak  from Perception Kayaks  award-winning Perception Expression series of versatile sit-inside kayaks combine the forgiving handling and stability expected of a touring design with the speed and storage of an expedition kayak. Spacious dry storage means it’s capable of multi-day journeys–yet still fast, fun, and agile for simple day trips. The clean, streamlined design is easy to store and transport.

11.5 model’s versatile 11-foot-6 design offers an unbeatable blend of performance and comfort. The roomy sit-in cockpit and superior stability is perfect for beginners, while experienced paddlers will enjoy its speed and handling. The short length easily explores tight areas, yet the boat still has the length for effortless open water crossings. Long days and overnight excursions are a pleasure thanks to the deluxe comfort of a six-point adjustable seat. The Expression can also be upgraded with a rudder (sold separately) for increased maneuverability and tracking if desired.

Proudly designed, molded and hand assembled in the USA, the Expression 11.5 kayak is backed by a 5-Year Warranty.
