Warsaw, North Carolina (January 17, 2012) — The Santee 100 LT, an ultra-light thermoform kayak from Hurricane Aquasports, boasts a brand new look. Weighing in at only 35 lbs, the redesigned 100 LT possesses a 5-inch longer cockpit than previous 10- foot models, includes Hurricane’s new grey-trimmed fully adjustable seat, has an integral paddle holder, and features fresh deck aesthetics that add rigidity to the boat’s overall structure.
According to Jon Stewart, Director of In-House Operations, “With an MSRP of only $799, the thermoformed Santee 100 LT is sure to be a popular model for us, especially given that it includes features typically found on more expensive boats. We wanted to meet a competitive price point without stripping down the design, and I’d say we definitely met our goal.” The 100 LT has a rear bulkhead not typically available in 10- foot kayaks, as well as an 8″ hatch and attractive deck rigging. The boat is available in cardinal red and will begin shipping to certified Hurricane Kayak dealers later this month.
About Hurricane Aquasports
Hurricane Aquasports is a leader in the manufacture of lightweight thermoform kayaks. Based in southeastern North Carolina, Hurricane was founded by a group of veteran paddlers in 1998 to meet a growing need for lightweight, high performance kayaks. Boats thermoformed from Trylon, Hurricane’s proprietary plastic, are stiffer and lighter than roto-molded polyethylene kayaks and cost significantly less than comparable composite models.
