Knysna K2

Knysna K2

Knysna Racing have produced some very successful downriver K2 boats. The fittings and finishes of their boats are more simple than the European built boats but when put to use you will find the boats lack nothing in performance and functionality. Adding to their extensive range of river boats Knysna  also sell kayaks aimed at the flatwater marathon market.

There are boats to cater for beginners, intermediate, elite, recreational, masters and children. Each model is available in 3 x river constructions and 3 x flatwater constructions.

Weight of the boat will vary according to the model and construction.

Note: When a boat is given a stability rating for river use, the stability will be different on flatwater.
