The famous Raid single kayaks are now replaced by the Narak Cross and Narak 460, as the modern preference seems to be for longer, slightly narrower hull forms. We’ve kept this page for reference for now because the Raids were built largely unchanged for decades, and earnt a great reputation, and you still find them secondhand. We also have one left, a 416 with aluminium frame and blue deck. The Raids are nice stable boats, and quick to assemble once you’ve learned the ropes, taking around 15-20mins;
– Raid 325: a small, ultra portable kayak, weight just 13kg/28lb. 325cm/10.5ft long, 53cm/1’7″ft wide (61/2′ with Stabilairs), suitable for one person up to 80kg/176lb. Packs into just one bag.
– Raid 416: This folding kayak is light and easy to manoeuvre, stable, suitable for river and sea touring. 416cm/13’6″ft long, 59cm/2ft wide (70/2’2″ with Stabilairs inflated), weight 17kg/37lb, capacity 130kg/286lb. Price from £1950, depending on specification. Packs into just one bag. The one we’ve still got (brand new unopened in box, quite probably the last one in the world like this!) has an aluminium frame with blue deck skin.
Nautiraid Canoes and Kayaks are available in four colours; grey, white, blue and red. Call us before ordering to discuss your requirements and colour preference. Depending on what we have in stock some may need to be built to order. Nautiraid coracles, kayaks and canoes are lovingly built here in the factory workshop in France.
See Accessories for all kayak additional options and extras.
See Nautiraid Sept 2017 for pricing and specification information.
With so many models and options we recommend reading our guide that introduces the Nautiraid Kayak range and explores the options. Nautiraid Kayak Guide (opens in a new window)
