General info MEGA

The new MEGA is based on the RIVERSTAR hull, with some elementary refinement.

For whom is the MEGA best suited?

For all those looking for a roomy boat, however not a Canadian canoe with spade paddle propulsion, but a comfortable double- blade paddle kayak.

For all, who do not really feel safe, or fear capsize.

For parents and grand-parents with a child, looking for a roomy kayak.

For seniors preferring an absolute comfortable good natured and safe boat to an extreme sporty kayak.

For the veterans of folding canoes unwilling to spend hours on end fiddling on with numerous parts during assembly, dismantling and shifting of them, but who do not want to forgot the benefits of a roomy and stable craft.

For weighty canoeists in need of ample width for comfortable seating, and of sufficient buoyancy.

For all those looking for alternatives to paddling in company or say for single hand canoeing.

For those not willing to stay at home when the weather is poor, but enjoy a trip protected by a spray-cover.

For active canoeists wishing to venture rivers that are busy with traffic, light grade white-water, lakes or coastal waters.

For all, who do not only want to paddle, but occasionally wish to cruise comfortably under motor.

Innovative details

The 90 cm beam renders the MEGA unbeatably stable, with ample space to sit comfortably, and with no fatigue during extended trips.

The length of 500 cm offers room for a convenient stretch out, and to carry on board all that is needed.

The open cockpit enables heavyset people to step in and out of the boat with ease, to enjoy generous leg room, and to spread the load weight efficiently.

2 x 6 = 12 s/s eyelets both sides facilitate seat positioning of the 1 - 2 seats.

The 2 cushion seats have added GRP rods for fatique-free seating comfort. To facilitate easy boarding and deboarding, the back-rests are kept upright by 2 adjustable rubber-elastic straps cables. Seat position fixing  by way of 2 infinite adjustable snap-hooks.

The seat-adjustment points offers the use:

The large dimensioned fore- and stern deck provides stowage for luggage and camping gear.

The stern comes with 2 insert lugs and s/s bracket plate for the rudder assembly, or for mounting of the Torqeedo electric motor attachment.

2 massive foot brace bars can be fixed at varying positions (when air pressure of the floor chamber is reduced).

The equipment for steering, and motor control, foot-pedal-steering (x), or Torqeedo-motor bracket (x) fit pushbutton secured on top of the rear foot brace assembly.

Each one bow- and stern carrying handles serve to the attachment of boat line at both ends for easy carrying of the boat.

Unique GRABNER-quality is the guarantor for absolute satisfaction, safety, and product long life. The boat skin, covered (by a 5 year guarantee) has proved itself positively, with boats in use worldwide. That goes for rafting boats too, which are exposed to most extreme wear.

Highest operating air pressure of 0.3 bar provides the best of stiffness and torque resistance. Such rigidity means less energy when paddling.

The colour combination of black/red has been well thought of. The black underside is less conspicuous to the flora, whereas the topside red as a safety colour can be seen better in poor visibility.
