Xplora Watercraft currently manufacture (and repair) watercraft for multiple sporting disciplines - kayak fishing, flatwater racing and recreational craft in both hand laid and vacuum infused layups. We have a focus on quality, sustainable manufacturing processes. Our boats are built to order using quality polyester, vinylester and epoxy resins and high grade composite reinforcement materials. This makes our boats strong and light for their size and being built here in Melbourne and available direct from the manufacturer, we can reduce overheads and offer you a very competitive price for a craft in a given layup.


Xplora Watercraft are now producing the Rebel range of stable K1 racecraft designed by renowned champion padder Steve Vegh. Steve has been paddling in Australia since 1984, winning many championships in a variety of craft.

Some of his achievements are:

  • Australian Champion in Canoe and Kayak - sprint / marathon since 1984 – 2015

  • Five times Murray Marathon winner TK-2 relay

  • World Masters Champion in 2002, 2009, 2007, 2015 - world champion in singles and with mixed doubles K2

  • Outrigger Canoe Champion: 2005 , silver medal in Coffs Harbour in 2011.

  • Ocean paddling is Steve’s passion: Ocean ski and Outrigger Canoe. He has competed in several Ocean races, local and around Australia.

His boats have been a staple in clubs around the country for many years and we are proud to be the custodians of the brand going forward.  ​
