This 14-foot sea kayak breaks down into parts that nest inside each other, resulting in a packed size no larger than a big suitcase. This radical innovation, the Pakayak could save a lot of space aboard yachts!
Just about every hard-sided kayak is made through a process called rotomolding, which sculpts a single piece of plastic into whatever shape a manufacturer chooses. That same process is used here to create the six segments that nest inside one another, Russian Matryoshka doll set-style.
When fully assembled, this Pakayak Blue Fin 14 measures 14 feet long—a sweet spot that makes it less unwieldy than a 16-foot beginner kayak, but more stable than shorter models.
Packed down, the Blue Fin is about three-and-half feet tall, two feet wide, and 16 inches deep. With the included case, you can carry it on your back or haul it around like roller luggage via the built-in wheels.

I have been sailing all my life, from dinghy racing to Trimaran Orma 60 and currently I am racing on the J 145 Double Take in the Pacific Northwest. As a Business and Marketing student I am working for a Yacht brokerage in Seattle: Swiftsure Yachts. As a sailor I believe that the journey matter even more than the destination. “A ship is safe in a harbour, but that’s not what a ship are made for.”
