Drifter II


One of the most popular two-person recreational boats available, the Drifter II features a high-spec fit-out that includes sliding seats. The two-person version of the Drifter Plus is a fun kayak for the whole family, and it can be paddled just as well by one person, or with two people on board.

The Drifter II story:

The Drifter II is a family friendly, inclusive boat that can be shared by all, and is ideal for use on weekends, holidays or picnics.

Fun shared is twice the fun, and that's definitely the case with the Drifter II.

The Drifter II came after the first of the Drifter models, known for its user friendliness. Everyone has a great paddling experience on this kayak. Because of the popularity of these boats, we used the same features to produce the two-person version.


What’s in a name?

When you’re paddling a kayak with another person, you don’t care about time. We wanted a kayak that did its job so well that you could concentrate on the experience you were having, without worrying about time. In other words, just drifting around. From the first time we paddled it, the name came to us easily.
