From Box to Boat

Foldable kayaks marry versatility and fun

The art of origami inspired Oru Kayak’s lightweight, folding kayaks, which combine high performance and handling with easy storage, transport and assembly. Five models unfold from compact boxes into streamlined vessels ranging in length from 10 feet for the easy-going Inlet to 16 feet for the ocean-ready Coast XT and the Haven, a tandem vessel that converts to a single. The 12-foot-long Beach LT (center) and Bay ST (top and bottom) are built for day trips and casual beach and fishing excursions. Oru Kayak’s boats weigh from 20 to 40 pounds, depending on the model. Prices start at $899 for the Inlet and top out at $2,199 for the Coast XT, which carries up to 400 pounds; paddles priced separately. orukayak.com
