Designed specifically as a river boat, Robyn Kime raced this boat to victory in multiple Dusis and it is the boat of choice of Abby Adie. It has good manoeuvrability and sprint or maximum speed. It additionally has a good cruising speed, and requires little effort to keep it on a plane, which is crucial for a marathon boat. It can take a paddler of up to 80kg on a river.
It has a round hull from the nose through to the tail, with a full tail giving good volume preventing the tail from sinking into the water, alleviating the porpoise effect that can occur in boats and ensuring good speed through a turn. A subtle flare through the hip area adds a little bit more stability, making this a competitive river boat for the lighter paddler who doesn’t want to sacrifice stability.
