If you've ever said, "They just don't make 'em big enough for me," try an Eskimo 18-6 on for size. It will be a pleasant surprise! Designed for tall or heavy paddlers, it is a popular choice of those in need of a high-volume expedition kayak.

The Eskimo really shines when it is being loaded with gear: two large secure hatches give easy access to huge bulkheaded compartments fore and aft. Gear that takes careful planning to stow in most other boats, can be loaded without a thought.
This is a proven, field-tested guide boat. Rangers at Glacier National Park in Alaska use it for patrol work.

A kayak with a choice. Eskimo 18-6 CRX 3G incorporates the innovative CR™-System, the basis for our popular Catamaran, Outrigger, and Sailing options. It comes with all the outfitting and deluxe options of every kayak in the Eskimo CRX 3G series.
