Simply assemble without tools by the waterside and then off you paddle!

One of the main beneficial features that the Neris folding kayaks have, that differs to most other branded touring folding kayaks, is that NERIS boats have long open cockpits with shorter front / rear decks. This design allows for easy access to stowed kit, with part of the storage being within the open cockpit space. EG - The open cockpit storage space in double / triple seater kayaks is a space in front of the rear paddler. On single seater kayaks, the main cockpit storage space is behind the paddler's seat.

Spray deck covers are available with loading hatches to access the cockpit storage spaces.

The central storage space can be utilised as an extra seating position for a small child or dog.
