McLellan Jacobs releases new custom carbon-fiber kayak


Looking for a sexy, lightweight water toy? The new McLellan Jacobs carbon-fiber kayaks might fit the bill. Built by America’s Cup boatbuilders in New Zealand, and with wood detailing by a high-end furniture manufacturer, the Kayak 1 is made to order. The hull can be painted to match the mothership, and owners can choose from a num­ber of timbers for the wood details. The 12-foot-10-inch (3.36-meter) kayak weighs in at only 36 to 40 pounds, depending on customization.
