Sirocco

 
 

Current Designs manufacture a range of composite (fibreglass or kevlar) and rotomoulded polyethylene kayaks in the USA. They produce kayaks in both the "North American style" - with rudders and the "British style" with skegs.

We have a range of Current Designs kayaks available for demo:

  • Sirocco (plastic)
  • Gulfstream (fibreglass)
  • Storm GT (plastic)
  • Squall GTS (plastic)

The Storms and Squalls feature a rudder, whereas the Sirocco and Gulfstream are skeg kayaks.

They all have generous touring style cockpits and are available in white and a range of safety colours.

The Storm GT is being discontinued (only available in red!) and replaced by the slightly smaller Squall GTS.


This is a proven kayak, built in rotomolded polyethylene as an example of innovation at its best

Based on our popular composite model, the Gulfstream, the Sirocco will appeal to a broad market who crave performance yet want a boat that is user friendly.

Designed by Derek Hutchinson, the Sirocco boasts many features of the composite version including a retractable skeg, recessed deck fittings, deck rigging, bulkheads and hatch systems including the 8" day hatch just behind the paddler for easy access.

This fine sistership to the Storm is appropriately named Squall (a small storm). If you want a performance touring kayak with extreme durability the Squall is for you.

The Squall is scaled down for the smaller paddler or for someone wanting a slimmer, tighter fitting craft with all of the features and details of the Storm.

The Squall carries enough gear for long trips and still performs well as a day tripper.

At 22" wide and 16'6" long, this quick little polyethylene kayak is zippy and fun.

The Shallow "V" hull gives a lively feel, yet a strong sense of security when leaned over on its side. The 29 1/2" long cockpit allows good contact with the boat and superb control.

The rugged polyethylene construction gives it a unique combination of strength, stiffness, and impact resistance. The Storm's recessed deck fittings accommodate a very clean deck rigging system with full perimeter deck lines. Rugged, stable and a great performer -- the Storm raises the bar for rotomolded kayaks.

Designed and built to handle tremendous abuse, the Storm will offer years of maintenance free paddling at an affordable price.

The Storm is beautifully appointed with features far superior to other rotomolded kayaks on the market.

Redesigned in 2004, the Storm has been fine tuned from stem to stern, including features such as new hatch systems and rudder controls.

When paddling the Storm you will immediately feel comfortable with its stability. The Storm has been used on many extensive trips with great success.
