Get ready for your next adventure by purchasing a Seascape Expedition, the finest expedition-grade tandem kayak ever made! This kayak features the best balance between speed, maneuverability, and stability ever devised. Their durability is legendary, making them the favorite of outfitters and expedition kayakers who demand the utmost in performance, safety, and dependability. Northwest Kayaks makes several models of Seascape tandems, widely recognized as the best two-person kayaks ever built. The Expedition is the top-of-the-line model and was designed for the most difficult sea conditions. Northwest Kayaks are built in the same factory that supplies components for the space industry. Their kayaks, and rowing shells for competitive racing, are built to aerospace quality. The former owner’s hobby of racing sea kayaks led to a side gig that gave birth to the Seascapes and many other excellent sea kayak designs.
Our used Seascape Expeditions for sale are a bargain due to their superb condition. They are never rented and only used under the supervision of our guides! Unlike other outfitters, we do not drag our kayaks on the beach, thereby saving the keels from unnecessary damage. High wear points on deck are protected by a clear protective film. Even though these kayaks have been used, they will last your entire life and into the next generation.
The current batch of used Seascape Expedition tandem kayaks for sale have logged only three months of touring while under the strict supervision of our guides – never as rentals! The retail cost for Seascape Expedition tandems is over 50% the cost we sell to you when including the important customizations we add. All in all, buying a well-maintained used double kayak in beautiful condition from Sea Quest is truly a bargain!
Our Seascape Expeditions are available in a variety of deck colors, including oyster white, Aztec yellow, lime green, Caribbean green, and glacier blue – all with oyster hulls and black trim. Currently, only Aztec yellow, lime green, and Caribbean green are available in 2021. You can get really creative by ordering a brand new kayak in any color of the rainbow – if you are willing to wait until next spring for delivery. Different colors can be used for the various parts, including deck, hull, and trim, such as seam tape and cockpit rims. Beautiful swirls fade, and other custom effects can be ordered, too. You can order a brand new custom color Seascape from us and still benefit from our outfitter discount. If you let us use it for some kayak tours before you pick it up, your discount will grow bigger.
Our used tandem kayaks for sale include expensive upgraded features. We opt for fiberglass bulkheads that provide greater hull strength, more reliability in emergencies, and are maintenance-free. Our custom back-bands aid stability in rough water while increasing comfort. Heavy wear points on deck are covered with clear hurricane film, so you will not find a used kayak with a prettier deck finish. Various other refinements have been made to improve both safety and ease of use. As the manufacturer’s most demanding and knowledgeable customer, we are often consulted for fleet improvements or asked to perform field-testing of new fittings, composites, and experimental models.
The Seascape Expedition double kayak was designed using Greenland Inuit principles. All the best high-performance kayaks that exist today come from core Greenland principles. They feature long, graceful curves, sharply tapered and up-swept ends, a modified V keel bottom, soft chines, and flared sides. In essence, they look and behave exactly like an up-scaled high-performance solo kayak. But they are much faster, thanks to their longer water line and “twin engine”! Speed usually reduces maneuverability and stability, but the key Greenland performance traits were retained by applying for modern naval computer design programs during design. There are many very fast tandem kayaks in flat calm water, but the true test is to hold both speed and stability in huge storm waves. We have used fully loaded Seascape Expeditions to speedily and safely cross open waters in crashing 12-foot white caps. Despite cargo space that allows for wilderness tours of over two weeks without re-supply, Seascapes are the fastest and most stable expedition kayak in the world.
Seascape Expedition tandems are so versatile they can be used for short-day paddles, too. The unprecedented design allows the Seascape Expedition to handle any water conditions from the open ocean, outer coast, lakes big and small, and even Class 2 rivers. Our sea trials have included virtually every manufacturer’s tandem made, and few have come close. Most are immediately rejected due to a lack of quality and durability, and those that make the first cut usually fail miserably in performance trials. We prefer kayaks that can be depended upon in deep wilderness that are tough as nails, resist damage despite an unexpected accident, and utilize fittings that can be worked with the smallest of field tool kits.
