From the outset, the Eskimo 17 Take-A-Part was targeted to be
a state-of-the-art design to satisfy the needs of the most demanding
adventure traveler. Customer acceptance has been overwhelming.
This design quickly proved to be the ideal solution for the
world traveler who does not want to sacrifice the safety, reliability,
ruggedness, and performance that only a hardshell kayak can
To top it off, the heavy-duty Kevlar®/Graphite construction
can take the wear and tear of corals or barnacles that would
spell trouble for any skin-type craft.
This 17-footer is capable of carrying the gear for just about
any seacruising trip or expedition and can be comfortably paddled
by persons both large and small.
Design, performance, and outfitting of the Eskimo 17 Take-A-Part
are identical to the 1-piece version.
