Black Pearl Greenland style kayak. Designed by Bjorn Thomasson of Sweden and built at Orca Boats, this traditional style of kayak is a slender, low volume, playful kayak. It is rated for a person around 5’8″ to 5′ 10″, with a weight range of 155 to 175 lbs. and with the smaller, traditional style cockpit, it would be better suited to a slender paddler. This is not a recreational touring kayak for long trips, but rather a fun boat to surf, roll and rock garden in. It was originally built for a customer who nearing the end of the build, bowed out, which means you can get a pretty good deal on this one.
You can also view the actual build of this kayak on my YouTube channel. Contact me for more information and pricing. Can be shipped anywhere in Canada or the US.
I also have a chestnut 16 foot canvas canoes that if you wish to adopt and have it restored for yourself you can contact me.
