Ordering a custom inflatable kayak from China

Post by HavenFinder »

This is quite a detailed and informative article by a gentleman in the Netherlands who sourced out a higher-end, custom inflatable kayak from China. He figured out who Sea Eagle's manufacturer was (a Korean company called Zebec) and then did some detective work and found a Chinese factory where the boats are apparently made - he was able to order a drop-stitch kayak directly, to his specifications, at a considerable savings.

A very well-written, fascinating story with lots of photos, technical information, and enough detail for someone else to do the same thing. Even if you're not into PVC boats, worth the read...

Glad you posted this as I had also read it and found it to be very interesting.
The savings were so significant that I think I will probably try it too.

I read somewhere in this forum that the seller may not sell to individuals anymore, but I am not positive (I could remember it wrong).

Please do report back, if you do try it. Thank you.
