Wooden Kayak CNC Vember Expedition
The Vember Expedition extends the length by 10% compared to the smaller Vember sea kayak to 5.35m (17.53 feet), while maintaining the same beam and stability characteristics. The construction follows the Vember Build Manual, but with the transverse temporary forms spaced at 330mm rather than 300mm.
We kept from drawings only of the hull; the whole deck, fittings, skeg etc are all custom and come from over 10 years of experience testing new boats (paddled more than 80 different sea kayak designs).
The result is a superb boat to handle in nearly all conditions; from rough water to flat this is a very stable and super manoeuvrable boat.
It is compared with the Northshore Atlantic and less with NDK Romany in terms of manoeuvrability to give you an idea but is more stable than both.
We got the kayak available for testing in the water if you are interested in getting one.
