Sport Hull Image

The Holiday 3 is designed to be a sporty recreational kayak. It is smooth through the water, gliding from stroke to stroke with ease. This isn’t your typical inflatable kayak, this is better.

The high-backed and infinitely adjustable seats are ideal for any kayaker. A comfortable seat will allow you to paddle faster and for longer distances with less strain on your back and shoulders.

Adjustable Footrests Image

Infinitely adjustable footrests provide a firm place to push your feet on. This saves your lower back from fatigue on long trips, it also helps you feel connected to the boat.

The optional rudder pedals mount onto these footrests for easy steerage!

Durable and Robust Image

The rubber material is strong and capable of withstanding collision with rocks and scraping on shallow bottoms. A strong plastic strake protects the bow from any head on impacts.

Lifting Handles Image

Lifting Handles for Added Convenience

Bow and stern handles are long enough to allow for comfortable carrying of your boat. Drag it from one end or have a friend help for longer portages.

Additional Equipment Image

Additional Equipment

The included stern bracket allows you to mount an optional rudder or Torqeedo Ultra-Light outboard.

If you are paddling with two people, we strongly recommend a rudder to avoid any issues with winds, currents or paddlers that aren’t perfectly coordinated.

Let Technology Do the Paddling for You!

Kayaks are amazingly well designed boats. They are stable due to their low center of gravity and are very hydrodynamic allowing them to be propelled easily, even by small muscle groups such as shoulders and arms. It is time to take advantage of the kayak’s design and leave behind manual paddling! Electric motors are reliable, efficient and environmentally friendly. An electric motor will free your hands so you can dedicate them to a fishing rod for easier landing of the big catch, a pair of binoculars for easier bird watching, or any other activity that would require two hands. Give in to the dark side and embrace the way of electric propulsion!

Built in GPS

Did you know that Torqeedo motors have built in GPS and a screen that displays real time range, runtime and speed? It also allows you to easily troubleshoot with error code readouts. Don’t guess with other brand’s display free designs. Torqeedo makes it easy to own and use an electric outboard!
