Looksha 17 Ruddered

Necky Looksha 17 (with Rudder) Kayak

THE LOOKSHA SERIES is a family of outstanding sea touring kayaks with excellent tracking, performance, glide, and overall handling characteristics. The longer models, like the 17, are popular with multi-day sea kayakers, pro expedition kayakers, outdoor programs, and tour companies. The Looksha is shaped and meticulously constructed with all-day comfort and enough room for all the gear a trip calls for. These models are long-time favorites in the San Juan Islands, Inside Passage, Coastal Maine and Nova Scotia where the ability to carry lots of gear, handle rough water and cover tons of miles effectively are highly valued.

The Looksha 17 easily accommodates medium to larger paddlers and all of their gear. And when stowing gear, you'll find the bow and stern hatches are the largest hatch openings ever designed by Necky. High initial stability, excellent glide and outstanding acceleration ensure that strong currents, tides or wind chop up to four feet won't slow you down.
