When you’ve got the best in-class recreational kayak, what do you do next? You think about how to make that design accessible to more people. Recreational means a lot of different things to different paddlers. For some folks, recreational means accessories, and accessories require space, so we took the Santee 116 and upsized it. We put some serious cubic inches in the cockpit and voila ― the Santee 116 Sport! A recreational kayak that gives you room for tackle boxes, rod tubes, dry bags and perhaps the family dog ― appropriately clad in a doggie PFD of course. In addition to the extra space in the cockpit, the Santee 116 Sport also features a sealed rear bulkhead and easy to use hinge hatch, and at 36.5 pounds you aren't sacrificing performance for extra space. Why? Because the 116 Sport rides on the same magic Swede form hull as the 116. The Sport Console enhances the oversized cockpit on any Santee Sport. The Sport Console easily attaches to the front of a cockpit via a bungee cord that travels around the back of the rim for a snug fit. Featuring an 8-inch day hatch, recessed storage trays for small items, two water bottle holders with bungee retention systems, and a 4-inch track system to attach your favorite rod holder or GoPro, the Sport Console has everything you need for a great trip on the water. If you want to add a little bling and more convenience, check out the Sport Console.
