My take on the Triton Double…
The Triton is a remarkable double sea kayak. It’s fast, easy to turn, very seaworthy and capable of good rough water performance in the right hands. Lots of volume allows plenty of equipment to be carried, making it ideal for extended trips. It’s also the perfect kayak for the skilled paddler to take a less confident partner along. Put them in the front of the Triton and they’ll be able to experience a thrilling trip without fear, safe in the knowledge that their guardian angel is right behind them. And don’t worry, even with one person paddling you’ll be keeping up with the pack with ease – it’s truly impressive to see it in action. This boat is fast and fun.
Top tip – if you want to make off-the-water handling easy, get a good trolley!
Here’s what Sea Kayaking UK say about the Triton
A fun double kayak, suitable for the medium to large paddlers. The kayak is fast and maneuverable – its features taken from the Explorer to produce a double sea kayak that is ideal for weekend and week long trips. The Triton is suitable for the intermediate to advanced paddlers.The Triton is fitted with the High Performance glass seat unless otherwise requested. A retractable skeg is a standard feature, but a rudder can be fitted as an optional extra. The Triton has four fibreglass bulkheads, front and rear hatches, and an extra day hatch situated behind the stern paddler. Standard keyhole cockpits provide good control and enable easy entry and exit. A recess for two parachute flares is situated between the two kayakers. The kayak can be Eskimo rolled very easily. Rescuing this double kayak is relatively easy, as all water in the cockpits will empty quickly when the bow of the kayak is lifted. The Triton is a high performance sporty sea kayak for paddlers who want a fast, seaworthy double kayak.
