Okay, let’s just get it out there, the Skimmer 116 with the Airstream Seat is a darn good looking sit on top. The lines split the difference between beautifully classic and cutting-edge modern with a finish so glossy you can see yourself in it. It’s a sit on top that begs to be put in the water, and when you get it there, the Skimmer 116 performs. With its touring style hull and refined scupper system, the Skimmer 116 skims across the water, cuts through waves, and slices through chop. Oh, and it weighs in at a slight 42 pounds, which raises the performance bar to a new level when you’re tossing this bad boy on your racks.

Our popular Skimmer 116 has given birth to a new design for the 2017 season – the Skimmer 116 First Class with frame seat. By pairing our lightest sit-on-top with Native’s industry-leading First Class frame seat, Hurricane has created a super stable, super comfy platform for cruising, fishing, bird watching, and simply having a blast on the water. The Skimmer 116’s touring style hull and Trylon construction allow it to easily outpace other kayaks in its class, while the First Class seat keeps your thighs feeling fresh after a day on the water. This new 11 ½-footer is full-featured from bow to stern with comfortable grab handles, 10-inch bow hinge hatch, two 5 ½-inch day hatches, a paddle holder, water bottle holder, and stern well bungee. Best of all, it only weighs 43 lbs with the seat installed. Take the seat out and loading is 5 lbs easier! Enlighten yourself and pick up a Hurricane!
