Used & Demo Boats


(We are often out on the water and unavailable!)

Contrary to our new, retail boats that are mostly still factory wrapped and have NOT been in the water, the following MIKCo fleet and demo boats have various levels of use. All are discounted, priced to fairly reflect their condition, and sold "as is". We reserve our full fledged, multi-hour demos, with fitting advice, boat design, manufacturing differences, and service for our new, full price boat sales. You are welcome to make an appointment to come out to Peaks Island to see these value priced boats. Please understand that we don't provide our new retail full price service, time and education, nor do we offer shipping for our used and demo boats. We are familiar with each boat offered below, and will try and help you with each boat’s strengths and needs. You can also find some of these boats on our eBay Store.

An ideal coastal explorer with great maneuverability and superb rough water performance. Full-chined hull provides great stability and quick response to edging.

Necky Kayaks
Necky Manitous -  $750

NEW BOATS: 2 bulkhead, 2 hatch, skeg. Full deck lines, adjustable seat. 2 available in Lemon.

These new Necky sea kayaks are no longer being made, but we think are GREAT everyday boats that could satisfy about 75% of the paddling public. They feature 2 bulkheads, 2 hatches, and an rugged and effective adjustable skeg. Large cockpit opening, solid footpegs. Cockpit rim for a skirt.

We like them as their hulls, (designed by two friends who are high level paddlers from BC) are way sophisticated compared to most 'rec' boats. These hulls feature design elements similar to our $4-$5K Nigel Dennis Kayaks. They've solid primary stability and high secondary stability. Large safety keyhole cockpit. Adjustable and comfortable foam seat. Demos available from our beach on Peaks by appointment.
