The Improved Sea Eagle FastTrack™ Kayaks are now sleeker, faster and lighter than ever!

 

  • Sleek Asymmetrical Shape
    Sleek Asymmetrical Shape

    The FastTrack’s sleek asymmetrical shape is tapered and narrow at the bow while being wider at the stern. This allows the FastTrack™ to punch through waves faster and easier because of the narrower bow while providing buoyancy where most needed – where 1 or 2 paddlers sit.

  • Sea Eagle's Patented NeedleKnife™ Rigid Inflatable Keel
    Sea Eagle’s Patented NeedleKnife™ Rigid Inflatable Keel

    The unique external drop stitch construction inflatable keel allows the FastTrack™ to paddle far faster and straighter than other inflatable kayaks. The keel features sharp bow and stern molds that slice through wind, waves and current for a super fast, super clean entry and exit! The inflatable bow keel also provides the buoyancy and lift needed to ride over waves and further improve speed. (U.S. Patent #8,286,573 2)

  • Super Rigid Drop Stitch Floor On Top Of Outside Floor
    Super Rigid Drop Stitch Floor On Top Of Outside Floor

    The unique modular design of the Sea Eagle FastTrack™ features a super rigid, high pressure, drop stitch floor that sits on top of an outside floor. This has several advantages. The high pressure DS floor provides great rigidity and rigid hull like performance. The reinforced outside fabric floor provides a double layer of added protection where it’s most needed. The modular design allows the DS floor to be easily removed for quick and thorough cleaning.

 

  • The new FastTracks™ have achieved a breakthrough in design, will crush the competition and are nearly unstoppable
  • Sea Eagle FastTrack™ Kayaks are sleeker, faster and lighter than ever! The FastTrack’s™ combination of sleek, curved, touring shape with state of the art “NeedleKnife Keel” provides a true rigid kayak performance in an inflatable. Most importantly, the FastTrack™ is designed to be extremely safe and stable.

High Performance/Ultra Light Weight

A great feature is the fact that Sea Eagle FastTrack™ kayaks weigh far less than most all-rigid kayaks. Rigid kayaks can weigh 65-70 lbs, our Sea Eagle FastTracks™ weigh just 32 & 38 lbs respectively. This makes handling our kayak a dream by comparison. Best of all, because FastTracks™ are inflatable they can be packed into a bag that’s a mere fraction of their size!

Sea Eagle FastTracks™ are a breakthrough in design that combines high performance paddling with ultra-light weight and stow-able portability.

Why the FastTrack Kayak Paddles So Well

side view SIDE top view TOP          front view FRONT
The Shape Says it All
  1. Drop Stitch Outside Keel (U.S. Patent #8,286,573) rides over waves, provides bouyancy, and constrains the yaw of an inflatable kayak.
  2. Removeable Rear Skeg keeps kayak tracking straight and true. Can be removed for whitewater use.
  3. Super rigid drop stitch floor increases overall rigidity, creates side chines under pontoons and enhances overall performance.

High Pressure Drop Stitch Floor

A very important feature is the high pressure drop stitch floor. It provides rock solid rigidity to the whole structure of the kayak making it very responsive to paddle strokes. The drop stitch floor even makes this kayak rigid enough to be used as a Stand-up Paddleboard.

The Sea Eagle 385ft and 465ft kayaks can be paddled for many miles and many hours with little effort. It will go straight in whatever direction you want and it will hold a course no matter at what angle you are paddling in relation to the wind.

This new design is truly a breakthrough in the evolution of inflatable kayaks.

Car-Topping Inflated Sea Eagle Kayaks and Boats. Whenever possible we transport our inflated Sea Eagle boats and kayaks to the launch point. Read how we do it.


Kudos

“Good morning Crystal and Tim,

Thank you so much for your attention to the purchase of my new FastTrack.
All your videos and other advice is very much appreciated. I’m not sure if anyone else would have been as easy and as informative as you have been.

 I’ve been looking for a kayak for years and finally decided to look at inflatables
due to weight and transportation needs.
I’m getting to old to carry 60 pounds of kayak to and from the launch site, let alone put it on top of my SUV.

 Your excellent advice and info made it a no brainer for the FastTrack.

 Thanks again and have a great weekend.”

 Jay Shepherd

 


Different Strokes

The Sea Eagle FastTrack is a remarkable kayak with lots of different accessory options providing our FastTrack customers an accessory for every conceivable use. Or so we thought.  Here’s some customer FastTrack modifications from the fertile minds of our creative customers.

The first customer mod is called the “Mary Poppins” modification and is self-explanatory.

umbrella

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


 

The second customer mod is Gerald’s Magnificent
Fly-Fishing FastTrack 385.

Gerald’s Tips, Kudos, and Caveat….

“Tim and Crystal,

Thanks again for your follow up.

I have demonstrated my 385 Fast Track and outriggers/trolling motor to a dozen other fishermen and others that owned canoes and Jon boats.  I think Sea Eagle has a winner with this boat

caveat:

– paddles better with skeg

-raised fishing seat needs foam platform

-drop stitched floor needs to be at 9 psi or more

-with electric motor, stable with the outriggers/pontoons

Love the carrying capacity of this 12 ft. boat!

 Gerald”

 Customer mod #3 is Andrew’s Amazing Fishing and Sailing FastTrack 385 which is a combination 0f the two mods pictured above.

Hi Tim..

I took some photos near Crystal River Fl. This is how I rigged my boat for fishing. I love the new oversize fishing seat. The umbrella provides shade and acts as a sail. The white line is an anchor trolley.

…and now a customer review

 

Eric paddling his FastTrack in Deer Isle, Maine

Hi Tim, Crystal, We just got back from Deer Isle, Maine and, as promised, here are a few pictures of the 385FT in action. We mostly did tandem but had no one to shoot the two of us. But my wife Mary got some nice ones of me flying solo and those I’ve attached. (Sidenote: although both seats are shown in the photos, I’ve got the front seat in the proper position (middle) for single paddler.) Kayak peformance was outstanding! She inflated and deflated in less than five minutes. Stability was real nice. Getting in and out was done quickly and fearlessly.  I ran into some really choppy conditions (two footers for this part of the world) a mile or so out on my first day out, and I was amazed and really pleased by how well she handled the waves no matter which direction/angle I approached them. I actually enjoyed plummetting into the troughs not to mention smashing perpendicular through them! The latter enjoyment’s got something to do with that “cool ocean spray splashing over the bow and into one’s face”. Tracking was better than expected with yaw almost non-existent. We found that very important in maintaining speed and when we wanted to kick her into a higher gear, so to speak. The seats were nice and comfortable. Thanks for the “do not totally inflate” tip for the seats. Definitely a rule to follow for comfort. The last day on the water as we were returning from our final excursion, some dude and his wife yelled to us from the beach and asked if what we were in was “one of them there inflatable boats”. After giving that an “affirmative”, I proceeded to channel you (!) and give the couple a good five-minute sales pitch. Told them about all of the above and then added another important piece of the puzzle: the portability factor and how light the 385 was. They had an 85-pound tandem and were looking to go our route with the inflatable. Don’t be surprised if you get an e-mail from somebody from Maine! Okay, I must’ve drunk too much java before this post because I’m yakking away here. So let me stop, but lastly let me just add: Thank you Tim and Crystal. Thank you for this kayak and thank you for the top notch customer service! Enjoy the pictures of the 385FT in action against the backdrop of some beautiful Maine scenery as well as whoever that handsome stud is who’s riding it! Eric Trinkle
