The P&H Cetus is a fast cruiser sea Kayak designed as a load carrier. We're expecting it to be the natural choice for paddlers looking for a stable expedition platform or a fast, easy to paddle boat for long distance paddles.
However it's not just a boat for long trips though, it's equally as capable being used as a fast day cruiser. The Cetus sees a resurrection of a concept we were playing around with ten years ago: the fourth hatch in easy reach in front of your cockpit. It's proving more and more popular with paddlers who want somewhere quick and easy to reach to stow a camera or day gear when things are getting a bit rougher.
Expedition capable: The load carrier of choice, the Cetus lets you travel self-supported in comfort with the four hatches it has plenty of storage for equipment.
Effortless distance: The length and 'shallow V-hull' add up to a fast, efficient boat that won't take any time at all to reach the horizon.
Easy to paddle: The fairly wide hull means rock solid stability whether you're travelling loaded or not.
Swede form design for confidence inspiring stability, with shallow v hull for efficency .
