The highlights...

  • Tow/Security bar on rear deck
  • Compass mounting point (optional compass available)
  • The ultimate all-rounder, for day and weekend trips.
  • A choice of rugged and light-weight Kirton constructions
  • Rounded hull sections provide a predictable experience in rough conditions
  • Fun, responsive and excellent performance
  • Naturally a lighter boat due to the reduced surface area

The ultimate all-rounder. Meet the C-Trek 18’s baby brother, the C-Trek 16. But don’t let the size fool you. Being approximately two-foot sorter, its reduced length is its strength. Imagine the C-trek 18 Expedition only lighter, more manoeuvrable and much more convenient to handle out of the water. That’s the C-Trek 16 in a nutshell.

It really is suitable for paddlers of all abilities from absolute beginners right through to the experienced expedition paddler. It’s incredible manoeuvrability makes it the standout choice for day and weekend trips.

The efficient hull design makes full use of the boat’s overall length, so it performs as well as many kayaks that are a full foot longer. This means you can keep with the big boys with minimal effort.

The rounded cross-sections give a solid and stable platform that’s very forgiving for the beginner paddler and those looking for a little more comfort and stability.

The deck also benefits form the latest, high-quality Kajak Sport hatches and fittings to optimise security and performance.

The C-trek 16 is fun, responsive and offers excellent performance.

Check out our website to get a feel for the models that are of most interest to you. A good starting point is to look at the stability factor. Newcomers should aim for a 10.


Give us a call or send an email if you have any questions. After all, that's what we're here for! We won't sell you anything you don't need. We just want you to be in the right boat.


We'll need a minimum 10% deposit to secure your build slot. Do this as soon as possible to prevent delays to your order. The deposit may be paid by bank transfer or card.


We can only start your build once we have your final specification, so don’t delay too long. The choices can be overwhelming so please ask if you are unsure about anything.


We will give you a call or send an email when your boat is ready for collection. Full payment should be made before the boat leaves the factory, but you can look the boat over first.


Shipping kayaks is pricey so you'll probably want to collect the boat from our Devon factory. We can often deliver to the canoeing events we attending too.
