The Cetus HV

PandH Cetus HV

The Cetus is a fast cruiser designed as a load carrier. It has become the natural choice for paddlers looking for a stable expedition platform or a fast, easy to paddle boat for long distance paddles. However it's not just a boat for long trips, it's equally capable being used as a fast day cruiser. The Cetus was among the first production boats to see a resurrection of a concept we were playing around with ten years ago: the fourth hatch in easy reach in front of your cockpit. It's proving more and more popular with paddlers who want somewhere quick and easy to reach to stow a camera or day gear when things are getting a bit rougher.

The "high volume" Cetus HV joins the well received Cetus MV and Cetus LV, completing a line-up suitable for almost any size paddler. The original Cetus was well-liked, but P&H designers felt they'd learned a few things developing the low- and mid-volume models, and so, with the HV the full-sized Cetus gets a few refinements. Larger paddlers will find that the Cetus HV has tremendous glide, offers rock-steady stability and yet maneuvers with grace when edged. The Cetus HV is the kayak many of you have been waiting for!
