Fast usually means a few things in the kayak world :
-- plumb bow
-- skinny (i.e not 30 inches wide)
-- a long waterline (usually 14 ft or more)
-- light weight
-- costs some cash when bought new
-- skilled paddler using good technique

Decent 14 ft kayak, 24 inch wide ,reasonably quick :

Maybe you can find one used in your area,
-people are always swapping boats.

Basic shape you're looking for is this, but shorter :

Similar threads exist, its a common question,
and most of the time, money is the key element
