Sport & Sportive RM

Formerly the Romany Surf RM.

The Sport and its smaller "sister" version, the Sportive, are NDKs only rotomolded (RM) plastic sea kayaks. These boats exhibit legendary NDK performance and features at an attractive price point. RM boats are a favorite for rock gardening and all-around fun because of their durability.

At Maine Island Kayak Co, all new full price boat sales include custom foam fitting: a personalized process that brings our world class boats into a league of their own.

We have available for demo the Romany, Romany Surf, Romany Excel, Romany Sport and Romany Sportive. Call Tom at (207) 232-6733 to arrange an appointment.

About NDK Romany Sports

This compact, second generation polyethylene kayak is designed for the paddler who seeks full British safety features in a Greenland style Nigel Dennis Kayak. Its 16’ length is great for play, day or long weekend trips. Its hull cross section is based on the Romany and Surf for liveliness, but with a bit more primary stability and a longer stern for more speed and glide. This boat is designed for the average size to larger kayaker using it for day paddling, play and shorter trips.

As with all the Romany series this responsive plastic kayak is all-day-comfortable while offering great play and surf for the better paddler. Its reasonably boxy rails offer good primary stability. A flattish hull promotes its surfing characteristics which also helps in a following sea. The kayak has been designed to fit a range of kayakers with plenty of room for large feet. Unique to RM plastic boats, this boat has a fiberglass cockpit rim.

This RM kayak has the new adjustable high performance glass seat, unless otherwise requested, and offers extra leg room due to the raised area, the knee bumps, either side of the cockpit. The seat can be set higher for a smaller paddler. The kayak has a low rear deck for easy rolling, a keyhole cockpit that gives excellent contact, control, and quick exits as needed. The sloping bulkhead behind the seat allows the kayak to be emptied by lifting only the bow; no x-rescue is necessary.

Recommended paddler weight 150-220 lbs.
