SKIMMER 140

After a season of success with the Skimmer 116 & 128, Hurricane is proud to introduce the Skimmer 140 — a new model in the sit-on-top series designed by Ward Setzer and his renowned yacht architect firm Setzer Designs. This full-featured sea-worthy design will take the angler and recreational paddler to new horizons and adventures. With the same graceful lines as the bird for which they’re named, the Skimmer Series SOTs are distinctive kayaks with an exquisite balance of performance and beauty that make them a pleasure to behold both on and off the water.kayak trips and lessons alerts in houston

The Skimmer 140′s touring style hull and Trylon construction allow it to easily outpace other kayaks in its class, and its low seat-pan and comfortable outfitting make you feel totally connected with the boat. Fully-featured from bow to stern with a generous front hatch, center day hatch, and stern day hatch, the Skimmer 140 is designed for serious paddling, and anglers will be overwhelmed by the outfitting opportunities this lightweight SOT has to offer. Featuring the Airestream seatback and fully integrated seat system, the Skimmer 140 will score high with customers desiring more hull speed and increased capacity in a lighter weight SOT package.
