Priority to stability and safety Priority to stability and safety : a large proportion of serious accidents in leisure boating happen on small boats serving larger crafts. Safety has all too continuously been overlooked on this sort of boat, but safety used to be the top priority for the 245’s designers. Four factors guided the design team in their work : keeping the weight evenly balanced when in use, being unsinkable, stability and getting back on board in case of falling off. The team tested every imaginable “accident” scenario and the Sportyak 245 is the result of all that work. The fairly low cockpit rim and a large number of carry handles make climbing back in after falling/ jumping out simple and secure. When empty, the cockpit go with the flow line is below the level of the floor, allowing the cockpit to self-empty. One, two or three people can fit comfortably in a 245. The double rowing position allows you to select your seating configuration. That means you’ll be able to adjust to any size oarsman for efficient rowing without compromising on balance.
