For a quarter century of working hand in hand with tour operators and retail outlets, we at Seaward kayaks have produced and will continue to produce our complete line of kayaks right here in North America. Our Manufacturing facility and Head office are located in Chemainus, British Columbia, located on Vancouver Island. We pride ourselves in offering the kayaking community handcrafted products with a stringent control process to every little detail. Compare our kayaks to other manufactures in the industry and you will see how we excel at producing a product that exceeds the customer’s expectations.
Our fiberglass kayaks are 1 to 3 pounds heavier than our competitors. We are asked throughout the season why we are slightly heavier? The answer to this question is: our kayaks are hand laid up creating a balanced resin to fiber saturation through out all the materials. This keeps consistent control of the strength and durability of the product. It’s a proven fact that hand laid manufacturing processes create a stronger product than vacuum bagging, as well as a much cleaner impact to the environment. We have an outstanding name in the industry for building the strongest kayaks and we believe that the overall safety of the paddler as well as the longevity of the product is worth a minor weight increase. Our fiberglass kayaks are completely hand built including standard fiberglass hatches, seams, combings and bulkheads. No plastic or Foam! We receive many off shore competitor models for repairs throughout the season, we experience first hand where cutting weight reduces overall strength and durability to the product. For this reason we will continue to offer our customers the strongest kayaks available in the market place proven by an industry leading lifetime transferable warranty.
Our Dedication is to build our paddlers the strongest, safest kayak available!
