Submitted: 08-23-1999 by Lee Austin

Perhaps the fastest 13' kayak out there, the Manteo tracks and cruises like a longer boat owing to a double chine hull. It is ideal for rivers or lakes, has a large load capacity, and can handle some mild rapids making it a great all-around boat.

The trade-off to the sure tracking is that it turns a bit hesitantly and has some choppy lean-steer characteristics due to the hull design. At only 13' feet though, the Manteo is maneuverable enough and will turn around in creeks that would necessitate backing out in a longer boat.

On top of all this, the Manteo has a lifetime guarantee, is well finished, and is available in a variety of colors.

Anyone looking at a "recreational kayak" should strongly consider buying a Manteo instead since it is stable, will do everything well, and the novice user won't outgrow it. Get the [optional] high backrest if you buy one.
