Introducing the Phantom, an advanced-level multisport kayak meticulously crafted with speed at its core. Designed to complement our popular F1, the Phantom provides elite paddlers with a choice that aligns with their high-performance demands. With a streamlined bow that effortlessly carves through larger waves without missing a beat, the Phantom stands as a testament to precision and speed. The large turn-up at the nose not only prevents boil grab but also allows the kayak to ride atop boils and eddies, maintaining its desired direction.
Key features include an elevated cockpit for easy entry and exit, deflecting waves for a dry and comfortable ride. The narrow catch area ensures a more efficient stroke, while the recess at the rear brings the rudder close to reduce drag—every detail aimed at maximizing performance.
In Tim's own words, the Phantom is a top-level racing kayak tailored for the most advanced paddlers. Recognizing the unique specifications required at this elite level, we offer custom-built kayaks that cater to your preferences. From the seat and rudder to the choice of materials and colors, the Phantom can be personalized to meet your exacting standards. Reach out and let us know your vision—because at this level, we understand that the pursuit of excellence demands a kayak that is as unique as you are. Elevate your racing experience with the Phantom, where precision, speed, and customization converge for an unrivaled paddling performance.

We work on a 3-4 week turnaround. In many cases we will be able to supply before the three weeks is up however, these are a hand-made product so they do take time to produce and we often have multiple orders in the system. we will advise you of an eta at the time of ordering.
Shipping and Pickup
We are based in Mount Maunganui and kayaks can be picked up directly from my workshop. Shipping throughout NZ and the world and will be charged at cost. Please ask for an estimate.
All fiberglass kayaks come with a white hull. This looks smart and doesn't show up as many scratches caused by rocks. The deck can be either a single, block colour (great if you want to display sponsors logo's) or your choice of two colours that are faded together. Please note that the colours are mixed in with the resin at the time of laying up the kayak so not everything is possible. At the time of ordering we will discuss the options with you and make recommendations if necessary.
Our composite kayaks have a white hull. If you would like a clear hull (to show off the beauty of the fibres) please be aware that micro bubbles and resin pockets may be visible. The deck is your choice of colour just like the fiberglass model. We prefer to have this coloured to prevent the sun from heating it up too much but if you wish I can also do the top with a clear coat.
