The Mythical Unicorn of Longboats

You’ve been asking for it for years…

We even pranked you with it on April Fool’s Day…

This time though, we’re serious; with your help, we can make the Pyranha 12R a reality!

The hugely successful 9R has taught us a lot about going fast, so why not take all that knowledge and make an uncompromised, super-fast, super-fun 12ft longboat? Yeah, we thought it was a good idea too!

The 12R is only limited by your imagination; multi-days, attainments, races, vertical miles, challenging and developing your skills, crazy big enders, big booming fun, or simply mixing it up with your crew; if the 12R doesn’t put a smile on your face, you might consider seeking medical attention.

By this point, you’re probably waiting for us to cut to the chase and tell you how you can help make it happen; well, if we get enough pre-orders for this beauty, the 12R will see the light of day in Summer 2018. If we don’t, the 12R will remain the mythical unicorn of long boats, so read on and order today!


  • Fast, asymmetric, Swede-form hull with narrow width and progressive rocker
  • The innovative wave defectors debuted on the 9R will continue over to the 12R to deflect most waves away from the kayak and generate dynamic lift for a dry bow
  • 9R style bow rocker to lift over obstacles, punch through holes, and resurface quickly to maintain downstream speed
  • Rounded edges for forgiveness and to help keep you on line and quickly transfer from edge to edge
  • Powerful cockpit ergonomics similar to the 9R, so more of your energy is transferred into momentum
  • Stout 2 outfitting
  • One size fits most
  • Available in Neon, Daredevil, or Rasta
