SANTEE 116 SPORT

When you’ve got the best in-class recreational kayak, what do you do next? You think about how to make that design accessible to more people. Recreational means a lot of different things to different paddlers. For some folks, recreational means accessories, and accessories require space, so we took the Santee 116 and upsized it. We put some serious cubic inches in the cockpit and voila ― the Santee 116 Sport! A recreational kayak that gives you room for tackle boxes, rod tubes, dry bags and perhaps the family dog ―kayak trips and lessons alerts in houston 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 aren’t sacrificing performance for extra space. Why? Because the 116 Sport rides on the same magic Swede form hull as the 116.
