I spotted the Grand Narak at the Paris Boat Show, the Nautiraid guys having a short trial of this new tandem in the pool.
This wood framed tandem is inspired by the lines of the Narak, with additional stability due to Stabilairs external sponsons. Nautiraid say that like the Narak the bow is high, suited for ocean waves and the boat is « fish form » which means that the maximum width is on the forepart of the boat. This way the designers expect good surfing abilities and easier turns despite its length. This boat is a tandem designed for a medium weighted crew (around 160 kg of paddler’s weight). And it can be easily converted into a single seater by placing a seat in the middle of the boat. This way it would suit bigger paddlers and carry a lot of gear.
They say the boat will be finalized for Dusseldorf German Boat Show at the end of January and the price will be known at that time
Can’t get the colours of the pictures right due to the indoor light of the fair but it looks great with the snow white deck !
