  Cetus HV:   The 'Cetus' is a fast cruiser designed as a load carrier. It has become the natural choice for paddlers looking for a stable expedition platform or a fast, easy to paddle boat for long distance paddles. However it's not just a boat for long trips though, it's equally as capable being used as a fast day cruiser. The Cetus sees a resurrection of a concept we were playing around with ten years ago: the fourth hatch in easy reach in front of your cockpit. It's proving more and more popular with paddlers who want somewhere quick and easy to reach to stow a camera or day gear when things are getting a bit rougher.   For 2011 the original Cetus has been adjusted to create the new Cetus HV. Volume has been increased, redistributed and balanced in certain areas to give larger paddlers more knee and foot room with an increased carrying capacity. This has also allowed us to fine tune the seat position to improve tracking and give more neutral and predictable handling.     In stock Cetus HV colors .
