The Peekaboo is a unique design of sit-on-top which, literally, offers a window on the underwater world. Built into the base of the hull is a large, leak proof viewing window so you can look into the water while you are paddling.
Being built by Ocean Kayak it also offers great stability and performance of course, plus plenty more features to make it perfect for family fun on the water. There’s a roomy comfortable seat in the standard paddling position and a moulded in jump seat further forward for children who want to take a peek beneath the surface.
Although the Peekaboo only weighs 61 lbs (27.7kg) the maximum carrying capacity is a hefty 400-450 lbs (181 – 205kg). She’s 11’ 11” ( 3.63m) long with a width of 34” (86cm) and built-in carrying handles make her easy to transport. The Peekaboo is made of durable rotomoulded polyethylene and the tough plastic viewing window is scratch resistant and recessed to protect it but is easily replaceable if necessary.
The oversized tank well gives plenty of room for storage and is the perfect place to stow your mask, snorkel and fins. Alternatively it could provide ideal extra room for a lightweight youngster. Cleverly Ocean Kayak has even thought of a built-in handle in the tank well so you can easily get back on board when you’ve been for a swim. She also features water bottle holders, a moulded-in cup holder plus two paddle keepers with easy to use tabs. For more storage you can have an optional 6” bow hatch.
The Peekaboo, and other great new recreational products from Johnson Outdoors UK, will be on stand B054 at the Southampton Boat Show 14 – 23 September, 2007.
The Peekaboo is available in a wide range of colours.
