FastTrack 385ft

Rigid inflatable keel and large skeg allow for fast, efficient paddling

"Paddles faster and straighter than other inflatable kayaks... does not sacrifice any interior space or comfort."

Sea Eagle Boats, Inc. has just announced the launch of its new high performance Kayak, the Sea Eagle FastTrack 385ft. Designed for serious open-water paddlers, this expedition-quality FastTrack paddles faster and straighter than other inflatable kayaks. Utilizing a new high tensile strength lightweight fabric, the Sea Eagle FastTrack also weighs less than other inflatables in its class.

The FastTrack—which will ship starting April 10st—utilizes a series of innovations which makes it distinct from the typical inflatable kayak. Its unique design incorporates a rigid, drop-stitch inflatable keel in the bow of the boat and a large removable skeg in the stern. These features combine to limit the “yaw”—or sideways motion—of the kayak, when paddling. This forces the kayak to go faster and straighter. Additionally, the rear skeg can be removed, making the FastTrack suitable to use in up Class III rapids.

A high pressure drop-stitch floor also sets the FastTrack apart from other inflatables. Described as a “breakthrough in the evolution of inflatable kayaks,” the floor not only increases the rigidity of the FastTrack—and efficiency of paddle strokes—but also allows the kayak to double as a stand up paddleboard.

Made to accommodate two people, the Sea Eagle FastTrack 385ft joins Sea Eagle's line of existing boats, including the new SE 370 Sport Kayak. The FastTrack is 12’ 6” long by 2’ 10” wide, a more narrow shape which serves to increase the kayak's speed. A 10” tube diameter, however, means that despite a more narrow shape, the FastTrack does not sacrifice any interior space or comfort. Suggested retail of Sea Eagle FastTrack 385ft with oars, pump & nylon carry bag starts at just $949.

Since 1968, Sea Eagle has sold inflatable boats and kayaks of its own design. An emphasis on superior materials and high quality accessories make Sea Eagle boats great for fishing, camping exploring, and many other outdoor activities. Today, Sea Eagle's lineup is wider than ever, including 7 models of different inflatable kayaks, 3 models of pontoon fishing boats, a sailing catamaran, motormount boats and transom boats taking up to 40 HP engines.
