Although the Skye was discontinued, it became the big daddy of the Easky range, the Easky 17.

The deck was fine tuned for a more polished finish and the outfitting was changed to the Flip-Top backrest and padded seat liner. Everything else, the size, hatches and the deck lines stayed the same.

You've got a long way to go but it feels like a paddle in the park in the Skye 17. Whether you're out from shore in open water, cutting through the swell to the other side of the bay or you're at the start of a three day river journey on glassy-smooth water, you'll barely break a sweat.

The long, sleek touring hull feels as effortless as a thoroughbred sea kayak but it's still as easy to paddle as a tourer. With this speed and efficiency, it's also a great load carrier: if you need to pack in enough equipment for a couple of nights in the wilderness, the long running length means your cargo will hardly even affect how it paddles.

The Skye's not the limit, it's your imagination.
