The following MIKCo fleet and demo boats have various levels of use, but all are seaworthy, maintained, and most ready to go to sea. Pricing reflects their condition. We know each of our own boats, and will tell you all we know. These are not new retail; all are sold “As Is”. Please respect that we cannot provide our usual full-fledged, multi-hour to multi-day demos, with our usual retail fitting advice, boat design, manufacturing differences, and one-on-one service. You are welcome to, and need to make an appointment to come out to Peaks Island to see these value priced boats – just please understand that we cannot provide our nearly unlimited new retail-level advice, time and education. We are familiar with each boat here and will try to help you figure how each boat’s performance and specs link up to your interests and needs. We want to help you with the right boat for you out on the sea to help you be both wise and safe.
A few of these value-priced boats are available to buy now on Maine Island Kayak Co's ebay Store.
