Iconic British Sea Kayak
Valley Aquanaut LV RM
This boat is just 2 years old and in very good condition.
RM stands for 3 layer roto molded plastic - valleys plastic boats are
worlds best practice and very stiff for the material.
LV stands for Low Volume, so this means it's a sea kayak more for day
use or short overnighters (the volume has been taken out of the shape)
- this allow the boat to sit lower in the water, is less affected by
wind and tracks well using it's shape.
This boat has been stored under cover is pale yellow and has reflective
decklines added and glow in the dark boat decorations
This boat was $2,300.00 new and was the last Aquanaut sold in Australia
- and this one is going for $1,600.00.
The Valley's are internationally acclaimed as touring and recreation
sea kayaks, this model is widely used in sea kayak clubs and schools
and teaching organisations world wide as a stable, predictable boat
with some amazing features and capabilities. The Valleys are skeg boats
(this means no rudder) and has a control on the side of the kayak to
lower or raise the skeg when required.
This boat would suit someone 180cm or below to 150cm, weight range
55kgs to 85.
Adventurous beginner or someone who wants a skeg boat or a performance
plastic sea kayak.
I would be happy to demo this boat to anyone seriously interested.
