The Hurricane Santee 100LT

Weighing-in at just 33.5 pounds, the Santee 110 is the perfect entry-level boat — light, stable and comfortable, the Santee 100LT is everything that makes getting on the water easy, worry-free and fun. For added comfort Hurricane recently redesigned the 100LT to add five extra inches in the cockpit, plus the new Airestream adjustable seat.

...the Santee 100 is extraordinarily light, easy to carry and launch...The front and rear bulkheads are unheard of in a kayak of this length. They provide superior buoyancy, which is a very desirable safety feature...Get ready for some envious glances, since people will think your Santee 100 is a composite kayak costing far more than you paid.

The Santee 116 by Hurricane

The inability to paddle a recreational kayak in a straight line can make your experience on the water...well, challenging. Not to worry. Hurricane solved that problem with the Santee 116, a rec kayak thatís easy to paddle in a straight line! And you can toss enough gear in the ample hatches for a serious daytrip on your local river or lake or coastal inlet, and cut a smooth steady line across the water. As a bonus, you wonít tear a rotator cuff putting the 116 on your roof rack because it tips the scales at just 38 pounds.

Reviews from Paddling.net

ďI love my Santee 116...Tracks nicely, yet turns on a dime. Light and easy to car top, and is quite eye-catching.Ē

...very light and comfortable, and she tracks and maneuvers well. She's also durable. I'm ashamed to admit that she's been dropped onto my garage floor, rammed into my garage door while on the roof of my car and dropped onto the ground from the roof of my car, but with no ill effects whatsoever.

Santee 116 Sport – With a wider, longer cockpit opening!

When youíve got a great recreational kayak, like the Santee 116, what do you do next? At Hurricane they thought about how to make that design accessible to more people. Recreational means different things to different paddlers. For some folks, recreational means accessories, and accessories require space, so they took the Santee 116 and upsized it into the Santee 116 Sport! A recreational kayak that gives you room for tackle boxes, rod tubes, dry bags and perhaps the family dog — appropriately clad in a doggie PFD of course. In addition to the extra space in the cockpit, the Santee 116 Sport also features sealed bulkheads (both forward and aft), and at 36.5 pounds, you arenít sacrificing performance for extra space. Why? Because the 116 Sport rides on the same strong-tracking hull as the 116.

The Santee 126 Sport

If bigger IS better — This is a recreational kayak that ups the ante — Hurricane took their Santee 126 and added an oversized cockpit, without sacrificing one iota of performance. In other words, you can still track like you’re on rails, still carve turns, still have more fun than should be legal in most states. The 126 Sport gives you room for fishing gear, photography equipment, and camping gear too — whatever you need. The cockpit is a spacious 55 x 24 inches, and 55 x 24 = a whole lot of comfort.

Santee 126 Sport
AVAILABLE FROM $999

Weight:  395 pounds
Length:  16.5 feet
Beam:  28 inches
Capacity:  350 pounds

The Skimmer 116 Sit-on-Top

Letís just say it: the Skimmer 116 is a darn good looking sit on top. The lines split the difference between beautifully classic and cutting-edge modern with a finish so glossy you can see yourself in it. Itís a sit on top that begs to be put in the water, and when you get it there, the Skimmer 116 performs. With its touring style hull and refined scupper system, the Skimmer 116 skims across the water, cuts through waves, and slices through chop. Oh, and it weighs in at a slight 42 pounds, which raises the performance bar to a new level when youíre tossing this bad boy on your racks.

The Tracer 165 by Hurricane

If you've been thinking about a composite boat, but put off by the premium price — if you thought the only was to get a sleek, agile, high-performance kayak was to go for fiberglass, (or carbon!), Think again. Think Tracer. This light, stiff, beautiful kayak has the subtle British-inspired design, rocker and moderate v-hull that delivers agile turns, strong tracking and great rough-water performance. You owe it to yourself to see just how much kayak you CAN get without that composite price-tag!
