When I bought the Tampico XL, I was moving up from a small recreational kayak (9.5') and wanted a boat that was both light enough to easily haul to and from the car as well as agile/fast.
On top of having incredibly clean lines, the Tampico XL does both of these. At 39 pounds, it's easy to load and unload. Straight line speed is good and it handles well on the moderate waters that I kayak. Great boat for me, now.
The cockpit is comfortable and definitely roomy enough for a 6 footer.
