Xplora watercraft kayak colour options



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

  1. Club/Surf - boats in this layup are hand laid vinylester fiberglass laminates with a combination of  basalt innegra and kevlar 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. Denoted 'Club' for flatwater race boats and 'Surf' for saltwater craft.  ​

  2. Ultra VIRT - boats in ultra  VIRT layup are are built using Vacuum Infused Resin Transfer,  but are a 50/50 hybrid construction of fiberglass and carbon/kevlar cloth. A Soric ® SF core is used to increase stiffness . These boats have good impact resistance for a lighter craft weight and are the perfect choice for people using their boats in bumpy water and 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 vinylester is used under vacuum to wet out the laminate of carbon and kevlar on a Soric ® LRC 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, but not recommended for use in heavy surf areas.
