Feathercraft Has Closed Permanently

 

December 2016
Feathercraft has now permanently stopped making folding kayaks and accessories. Due to a number of factors, including poor economic conditions, changing lifestyles, flight baggage restrictions and increasing costs, we have found that making our premium kayaks is no longer financially viable. We will miss the incredible feedback and adventure stories that we have received over the years. I personally will miss these customers, our many suppliers, and also my dedicated colleagues who have helped make our beautiful boats. Thank you all for your tremendous support over these past 40 years.

Everything has a beginning……..and an end.

Sincerely Yours,
Doug Simpson
Founder and Principal Owner

Why Folding? It’s not just that it folds into a backpack.  You become part of the environment with a skin on frame kayak. You are not separate from the water, but joined. The skin responds actively to the changing sea conditions. From the gentle undulation of a calm day, to a storm’s fury, wave energy is absorbed, and the kayak flows through surges and swells, protecting you. The real question is, why NOT folding?
