Lake Cruiser 15-32

Based off of our popular Laker series of kayaks, we've developed and open deck recreational kayak that is easy to build, light weight, and stable for 1 or 2 paddlers. The design is symmetrical front to back... meaning less drawing out of panels. Just draw and cut out one copy, and trace it for the other four.

*Hull weight will depend on the quality of materials selected and skill of the builder.


The open interior allows for customization of just about any kind. Add bulkheads to the ends for floatation. Add a twist-out hatch to the bulkheads and you have sealed dry storage. The combination of the side rail/decks, coaming, and underside decks supports eliminate the need for a thwart. However a thwart can be installed for easier portage from your vehicle to the water.


Always wear your Personal Floatation Device!
