How Much Does a Kayak Cost?

with No Comments

Kayaking is a popular and fun spring-through-fall activity that just about anybody can do. You can rent a kayak for the day but purchasing a kayak can offer endless fun throughout the season. How much does a Kayak actually cost?

The short answer is it depends. The type of craft you need will determine how much a kayak cost. Prices vary depending on the number of people the kayak holds and the material from which it was made.

Beginner and Recreational Kayaks

Beginner and recreational kayaks generally have a few common features, including a large cockpit and a heavier (and thus more stable) weight than other kayak models. We carry the Liquid Logic line of kayaks, which offers many models of beginner and recreational kayaks. Liquid Logic kayaks are built to take a beating while offering you stability and fun on the water. Liquid Logic Kayaks produces their own plastic; one that’s far stronger than the competition. 

Expect to pay $700 or more for a quality beginner or recreational kayak. With proper care and maintenance, a beginner or recreational kayak will serve you well for many, many years.

Fishing Kayaks

Performance Kayaks carries several brands of quality, durable fishing kayaks. Bonafide Kayaks. Bonafide, one of the newest brands from Performance Kayak, launched in 2016.  Bonafide Kayaks assembled some of the most talented and experienced in the paddle sports industry with a big but simple plan: produce the highest quality, most thoughtfully designed, and most carefully engineered fishing kayaks possible. Bonafide Kayaks is committed to manufacturing in the USA, creating jobs, and providing unparalleled customer service. Their fishing kayaks range in price from $999 up. 

NuCanoe Kayaks for Fishing and Hunting offer confidence-inspiring stability along with customizable decks that put you in control. NuCanoe boats excel at fishing, fly fishing, hunting, and so much more. The NuCanoe Kayak Fishing and Hunting line is similarly priced to the Bonafide line and includes five models with nearly thirty variations to choose from.

Finally, Native Watercraft Fishing Kayaks offer decades of boat-building knowledge behind each yak they build. Contact Performance Kayak to explore the Native Watercraft Fishing Kayak line of nearly two dozen models, including pedal-fishing, sit-on-top, and hybrid fishing models.
