Kayak demo days

Every day is a demo day at Kari-Tek!

When it comes to kayaks, at Kari-Tek we think it is vital to try out as many boats as possible before you buy one, so we maintain one of the largest demo fleets in the country. With our Ayrshire showroom located right beside a small loch, we're ideally placed to help you try before you buy at any time - just give us a call or email in advance of your visit to make sure the kayaks you want are available.

Full range of kayaks to trial

Our demo fleet gives you an unrivalled opportunity to try out and compare a huge range of boats in one session, which really helps in uncovering which is the ideal boat for you. See the table below for the latest updates on what is in the demo fleet.

See our kayak handling products in action

It's a great chance to see the whole Kari-Tek product range in action. We have boats fitted with our Skeg Systems, plus a selection of kayaks are fitted with Flat Earth Kayaks Sails - a whole new world of fun! Try them out on the water with one of our Lendal, Lettmann or Werner paddles. Take a look at the quality of our trailers, and try out our Easy Load Roof Rack and expedition rated canoe and kayak trolley.

Offsite demo days

We also occasionally arrange offsite demo days where you’ll be able to try out kayaks from our full range, as well as all our Kari-Tek products.  Any upcoming demo days will be announced on both the website and our Facebook and Twitter pages.

Kayak hire

You can also hire our demo kayaks for a more extended trial - the Ayshire coast is just 30 minutes drive away. We'll even take our modest hire fees off any purchases you make*.

Hire charges: Our hire charges are £20.00 per day, £30.00 per weekend or £100.00 per week, plus £100 refundable deposit. Read more on kayak hire here>
