Beautiful, easy to use recreational kayaks - Here we have two beautiful little kayaks designed for just about everyone to enjoy on the water.  With big cockpits and ample stability, the emphasis is on comfort.  But these boats really paddle well!  Speed is excellent:  you can really cover the miles in a day, while tracking is solid in stiff crosswinds.

  • You need a stable, comfortable kayak for all conditions
  • You need a kayak that fits nearly all sizes
  • You want speed AND stability in one kayak
  • Ease of construction is important

Here at Denman Marine we have been building a Wood Duck 12 featuring in the Amateur Boat Builder magazine, here are some sneak peaks at the boat after final varnishing.


e recently recieved some "almost finished" pictures of a Wood Duck 12 built in Tasmania. The builder chose to lay a Black Heart Sassafras Veneer on the plywood deck panels. The boat looks great and we are looking forward to the "launch" pictures.
