view Kayak Comparison Chart

With the same cross section and similar profile shape as the Guillemot, the Expedition Single has many of the same handling characteristics as the shorter Guillemot. The length of the Expedition Single provides volume for gear and efficient long distance paddling. Although this kayak may appear long for a single, it is nimble. There is a moderately hard chine to help it carve turns. Like all the Guillemot designs it is stable for its width and has a smooth transition from initial to final stability. Novices are comfortable with its stability, and experienced paddlers are impressed with its performance. Nick Schade admits that he is delighted with the design. Everyone who has tried this boat is amazed at how easily it handles. It does not feel like a 19 ft boat.
