Immaculate Folbot Kiawah. This boat has been lightly used and well taken care of. This was my wife’s boat and only used for fair weather paddling from time to time. The seat has been upgraded to a Crazy Creek version, which is far more comfortable than the original one.

There are no stains or tears on the deck or hull, and the aluminum frame is in great shape. This boat comes with a surf rudder that is still brand new in it’s bag. The only things a paddler must add are two inflatable safety bladders, a paddle, PFD and spray skirt. This lightweight boat handles well, and is really easy to assemble and take down. Purchased new was well over $1200.

PHOTOS Available

• Maybe you can't store a hard-shell at home, or maybe you want the best paddling experience possible on an upcoming destination trip; either way, you'll want a Folbot
• It sets up in about 20 min., and folds up into a pack that you can store in your car's trunk or your gear closet
• Thanks to a clever tensioning device in the rear of the kayak, you can first assemble the frame and then insert it into the skin, streamlining the set-up process
• The Kiawah 133 is the smaller cousin of the Cooper, suited to paddlers weighing 130 - 180 lbs.
• Perfect for day trips, the stable hull tracks well and cuts through flatwater and gentle currents with ease
• Hull is made of Hypalon
• Urethane-coated polyester protects the decks; all outer materials on the Kiawah resist UV light and are designed to take a beating without puncturing
• Kiawah frame is just as sturdy as its skin, with stainless-steel keel brackets, aircraft-grade tubing and anodized aluminum cross pieces
• Inflatable chambers called sponsons run full length of boat to increase tension and lock frame pieces into place; sponsons also flare out the hull to enhance stability
• Seat and footpegs adjust to create a comfortable position in the cockpit
• Easy-to-open zippers with high-strength zipper heads offer access to interior of kayak; hook-and-loop stormflaps and water-resistant closures keep things sealed up tight
• What’s included? Kayak will come inside a backpack with skin, frame, 2 foot braces, 2 air sponsons, and foam seat. Made in USA.
