New very exciting reviews, by Matthew Koerber,  Phil Newman (Sept 23rd, 07) and other excited owners

and a review by former VSKC president Peter Treby .

The Sea Leopard is the most stable Kayak I have ever paddled and this is backed up by instructors, and has a very high volume storage area compared to other kayaks, yet it is decieving as it doesnt appear so when first looking at it, a capacity now of more than 220 ltrs.
If you are looking for expedition kayaks au look no furthur.

Hi Bob, You might be interested in putting a link from my recent YouTube video clip featuring Grant Hyland in a Sea Leopard kayak. It shows the seamanship of Grant and the kayak.

  1. Hello, the greenlander pro is an entirely different kayak to the sea leopard which is a far superior sea kayak to pretty well anything else out there.
    prices for a standard Sea Leopard wich includes quite a lot is $3880.00,( standard options are listed on the Sea Leopard page.
    I no longer produce the Greenlander.

      I would like to get one sea leopard second generation but I live in Puerto Rico, and I don’t know if I can get one of those great kayaks. Please, let me know so we can make a deal.

    What is the cockpit (clear) size and the height of the deck in front of the cockpit. As a large paddler these dimensions are critical to me.
