From £1,785.00

               

The P&H Delphin comes in corelite x construction, being a triple layer with foam core to reduce weight and increase stiffness.  Think of the Delphin as being a great all rounder but one that loves to play, whether rockhopping or in the surf.  The cockpit is behind the centre, increasing relative bow rocker and allowing rapid direction changes.  Fitted here with a drop down skeg to aid tracking, especially in windy conditions or with tidal action.

LIMITED AVAILABILITY - Please get in touch here to check stock.

The cockpit of the Delphin is positioned further back than in traditional sea kayak design, giving a fine balance that, in combination with the progressive bow rocker, leaves the front of the boat just kissing the water, resulting in superb manoeuvrability and excellent positioning when riding even the steepest of waves.

When catching surf, the hard bow chines of the Delphin's hull engage quickly and make sure you're in control and towards the smoother, front end of the wave, whilst the softer stern edges allow you to make easy course corrections and the high volume, dynamically shaped bow prevents purling by splitting and shedding water quickly, as well as helping punch through the surf on the way back out to continue the fun!

The Delphin 155 MKII advances the milestone modern sea kayak design of the Delphin to include a much-requested day hatch, a re-located skeg slider, and moulded-in fittings to take the P&H Sail Systems, as well as a re-profiled area around the front of the cockpit for greater comfort and connectivity.
