The Taran 16 does everything its big brother does but in a slightly shorter fashion!
The Taran 16 does everything its big brother does but in a slightly shorter fashion! Cockpit and deck layout are the same as the full size Taran but the overall length has been reduced. This gives even more manoeuvrability and a nice smooth ride over larger steep seas. The 16 is a fast boat that you can throw about.
Stepping away from convention once again, speed has not been reduced – the 16 is not going to live in the shadow of its big bother. The trademark downwind handling is still there too, combined with excellent surf handling. The 16 really comes to life with a nice wave to surf!
The high volume front deck has been retained and the hull form is very close to the original Taran, just a touch shorter!
The Taran 16, like a Taran – surf, speed and stability (but fits in the garage easier!)
Custom Colour + Artwork
You can have a individual unique boat through Rockpool custom colours/artwork; they don’t do 'standard colours'! Let create the boat of your dreams…
Rockpool are happy to cater for more detailed artwork requests but in order to accommodate the increased workload we may have to add a small surcharge – contact for details.
Note:Extensive artwork/glitter will add weight to a finished kayak, the more colours the greater the weight!
Rockpool kayaks are manufactured from the highest quality resins and cloth and are available in an extensive range of custom colour combinations. They can offer standard hand lay-up or vacuum bagged constructions.
Vac bag construction is a manufacturing process used to ensure a more uniform wetting of the reinforcing fabric and removal of excess resin matrix in order to produce a stronger and lighter kayak.
All of our deck fittings are recessed and fitted externally to prevent leaks.

High performance touring sea kayak with a conventional knee position
The MENAI has the characteristics of a large boat with plenty of space, good speed, stability and a dry ride; but it also sees itself as a little smaller with impressive manoeuvrability and crisp handling.
The ISEL is a cracking little boat - as fast as our larger boats; it is comfortable and manoeuvrable with crisp and precise handling.
