We look forward to hearing from you.
The Sevylor Willamette 2021 one of the most recent additions to the fleet. Much like its sister model, the Alameda, the Willamette is a serious investment in return for unparalleled strength, performance and stability, and comes in a striking ultramarine blue. Deal 1 includes two excellent paddles and a recommended pump.
❓Alameda vs. Willamette?
What’s the difference between the ‘Alameda’ and the ‘Willamette’? The two models are very similar, and come in different colours.
🛶 How does it paddle?
Our team are impressed by the Willamette's ability to glide over the water, tracking in a perfectly straight line, whilst remaining stable and balanced enough to carry families in all types of water conditions (coastal, open sea, rapids, inland rivers lakes and canals). Taking a higher inflation pressure than other kayaks in the Sevylor range, this model performs exceptionally well and we simply love it.
🏅 The best part
The most impressive and helpful feature of the Sevylor Willamette is the new 2021 seating design. Each seat is suspended from the side tubes via hooks, which has four enormous benefits:
1. Your weight is spread across the whole kayak, not just the floor - this removes any misshaping of the hull, and resulting drag from the bump.
2. The hooks run the full length of the kayak, meaning that each seat can be moved forwards/backwards inch-by-inch, or removed altogether! Perfect for paddling solo, with a tall partner, or if you’re taking the children/family out.
3. Higher-up, you won’t get a wet bum, and you’ll find paddling much easier when reaching over the side chambers.
4. The backrests have built-in lumbar support bringing comfort above and beyond that of a rigid kayak - say goodbye to backache and hello to longer, more enjoyable journeys.
🐊 Armoured skin
The underneath of the Willamette is protected by Decitex®, a patented skin formed from nylon that has been meticulously woven through multiple layers of PVC. The result is a smooth and slippery surface with low-drag. Thanks to this ‘iron-like’ skin, you can drag the Willamette up shingle beaches, run aground over rocks, and graze against low-lying branches and roots. Water will bead off the Decitex® skin, keeping your kayak bone-dry for when you’re ready to pack up. Despite it’s incredible strength, the material is lightweight and couldn’t be easier to roll up.
💡 Some good ideas
The Sevylor Willamette can be used for solo, tandem, or family paddling with two adults and children. However many paddlers choose this model with the intention of paddling solo/tandem, removing the 3rd seat for extra legroom or space for camping/fishing gear.
The Willamette is extremely difficult (near impossible) to flip over, making it a safe option for families. It’s nimble enough to navigate tight rivers, but robust and stable enough to tackle white-water rapids. The raised bow and spray deck makes for good defence against any choppy waves that would otherwise leave you a little wet.
The whole kayak rolls into a neat carry bag – perfect for storing dry items in whilst paddling. At 19Kg this kayak is more than manageable for one person to carry and fits nicely inside a suitcase for adventures abroad.
The Willamette has handles at the mid-point, and at each end of the kayak, so it’s even easier to carry by yourself.
This kayak comes with an attachable fin and built-in directional strake, which gives the boat incredible directional stability and tracking.
