Many people still consider kayaks around this length to be the “gateway” length for proper sea kayaks and whilst we don’t rigidly subscribe to that view, certainly it is a length that allows comfortable multiday trips to be undertaken. The reason is simple, physics! The shorter a kayak is, all other things being equal, the more it will be affected by variations in load. This is because the smaller the footprint, the more it needs to sink into the water, to support a given displacement. So, at 12’ a rec-tourer might sink a further 2” (50mm), when carrying the extra kit required to camp overnight. Yet, in a proper 16’ sea kayak, the effect might be less than half this. The result is obvious, as the amount of hull in the water changes, so does the feel of the kayak, go beyond, what the designers intended and performance become seriously compromised.
Anyway, lesson over, this class of kayak is a great length for those who want a bit of everything, still short enough to be easily maneuvered, on or off the water but long enough, to have the speed to keep pace in any group and carry a load when required!
