Wayland factory upgrade
Due to the Wayland major factory upgrades in 2014/15, there have been many production changes / improvements / additions to the current Wayland range, so many of the photos may show the earlier variants. Photos on the 'Recent Deliveries' page will show the latest variants.

Descriptions on this site are subject to change without prior notice.





Can I paddle anywhere?
In the UK, you need a license to paddle in most of the waterways, rivers, lakes, etc.
BCU membership (Canoe England, Canoe Wales, Scotland Canoe Association and the Canoe Association of Northern Ireland) includes a licence to paddle on 5000km of Britain's waterways and canals.

Not all inland water is open to canoeists, some are privately owned or is bounded by land which is private, so do check beforehand. See Useful Web sites page.

In other countries, do check with your national kayak organisations and waterway / off-shore agencies etc.

Single Folding Kayaks

'Basic' models have clear decks, 'Expedition' models have extra features on the decks. For more detail on the features, see the Features page. The military Mk I Achilli Commando comes with specific features as standard, while the Combat variant is like an expedition version of the Commando. All Harpoon I's and Mk I Achilli's have fittings to take a sail mast. Note that the rear hatch/bag and spray deck, as seen in some of the photos below is an optional extra feature.

The Harpoon I XL500, with the bigger cockpit is recommended for very tall paddlers. As a sea kayak, the longer Harpoon I XL500 is ideal.

For a higher Maximum Loading, a shallower draft, and a more stable craft, an Quattro version is available with the longer single seater kayaks (500XL models). Quattro is simply an extra pair of sponsons that changes the hull profile slightly from the usual 'V' shape to a more rounded 'U' as needed. See 'Features' page for more detail.

All single seaters come standard with one backpack style packing bag. The standard bag as supplied with the Harpoons is quite large and heavy to carry - there is a option for a two bag set.

Prices are listed in the 'Kayaks and canoes' page. Descriptions are subject to change.


NOTE: On civilian kayaks, light grey CSM is now the standard hull material - black Hypalon (a type of CSM) was the previous standard hull, as seen in the photos. Black CSM / TPU available on request. Military kayaks is standard with black CSM.

Note that PET bottle pouches are not normally provided (deck is too narrow at the usual bottle pouch location - by your waist), however if you insist on having the bottle pouches (please specifically request this), the bottle pouches are placed slightly further behind where the coaming ends and the deck widens. On this XL500 boat, it is not possible to combine PET bottle pouches with a rear hatch. An excellent and fast multi-day expeditionary single seater kayak.
