Don’t think so, its a more regular sea kayak, only started production this week

I'm sure Sam at Kent Canoes mentioned they were producing something around the 16ft mark, possibly called 'Vela'...I think!
Time will tell I suppose.

The Vela is an old model no longer in production, maybe its being resurrected ?

Thanks for that, the Virgo, found this pic, based on the Scorpio, only shorter, just over 15 ft, seems the foredeck hatch is an optional extra

Simon64, you did better than me finding a photo!
I wonder if they will be doing a composite version?

Might sell well, a short Scorpio that’s a bit more play capable @ £800. Will be interesting to compare against boats like the delphin Aries stratos etc
