The standard, block or two-tone colour scheme is included in the pricing for your Xplora watercraft, other options & pricing are outlined below:


  • Standard  a white hull & deck with twin GT stripes in a contrast colour of your choosing. The joint line of the kayak can either be white, black or coloured to match your GT stripes.

  • Block:  The whole boat done in a single block colour of your choosing including the join line.

  • Two-Tone (no extra charge): It is also possible to order your boat in two block colours, the hull in one colour and deck in another. The seam tape can be done to match either the hull or the deck.



  • Third colour (+$200): This  option is as per the standard layout, including the GT stripes, but with the addition of another colour other than white for the deck or hull.

  • Clears (+$500): This option includes incorporating a clear gelcoat section in your ski, usually on the front deck, to expose a carbon twill or carbon hex feature. 

  • Tinted Clears (+$600): This option includes incorporating an exposed carbon twill or carbon hex feature but the clear is tinted with one of the dayglo options below. 


We offer a range of standard gelcoat colours shown below as well as a collection of Day-Glo pigments for those wanting something a little different! The DayGlo colours are translucent and can be used to tint your deck clear. If you are after a particular shade not listed below, drop us a line and we'll see if we can source it for you.

Xplora Watercraft are available in a choice of three layup schedules:

  1. Club - boats in club layup are hand laid vinylester fiberglass laminates with a combination of  basalt and innegra cloth reinforcement in key stress areas. A lantor coremat is used to increase stiffness . These boats are hard wearing and are the perfect choice for people 'hard on their gear' or where very regular use is required. These boats are slightly heavier than the other layup schedules but can take some rough and tumble and are straightforward to repair if you do manage to break it.

  2. Ultra - boats in ultra  layup are also hand laid vinylester fiberglass lamiates but with kevlar cloth used for the internal layer and as the  reinforcement in key stress areas. A lantor coremat is again used to increase stiffness . These boats have great impact resistance  and are the perfect choice for people using their boats in rougher waters that want a good balance of weight and strength.

  3. Elite VIRT  - our elite boats are built using Vacuum Infused Resin Transfer. This process is used to provide optimum wet-out of fibres and very consistent boat weights. Infusion grade Bader Crystic vinylester is used under vacuum to wet out the laminate of carbon, kevlar and basalt on an LRC soric core, which results in the lightest, stiffest layup we offer.  These boats are perfect where weight is a critical concern such as loading on a high vehicle or competing in racing events.
