Elie Gulf 100 XE Sit-On-Top Kayak


This product is no longer available, but don't go just yet.


  • Slightly more maneuverable than its 12 ft. cousin, the Elie Gulf 100 XE kayak is a great boat for lakes, slow moving rivers and sheltered bays
  • 3-layer polyethylene includes a special resin in the top layer, resulting in an unusually stiff, lightweight and durable watercraft
  • Specialized, twin-sheet thermoforming process fuses together the deck and the hull under high pressure and heat to create an inseparable watertight joint
  • Soft padded seat ensures you have a fun, comfortable paddle without rubbing or hot spots, and perforated foam backrest promotes cool air circulation
  • Backrest supports your paddle stroke with noticeable flex, and the shape closely follows the natural curve of the lower back
  • Raise the height of the backrest using the handle situated in the rear of the seat, and adjust the angle of the seat to enhance thigh support using 2 easy-to-access straps
  • Large footbraces adjust to ensure a comfortable paddling position
  • Cockpit includes 2 small open storage compartments on either side of seat and a bottle holder between legs
  • Day hatch behind cockpit includes a small dry bag to shelter splash-sensitive equipment
  • Quick-lock hatch covers feature a hinged design and locking lever; to open hatch, simply slide lever to unlock cover and flip open to access gear
  • Stern storage area features a deck cover suspended by bungees
  • Extended keel enhances tracking, and drainage holes throughout kayak help keep things dry
  • The 55 lb. Elie Gulf 100 XE sit-on-top kayak includes carry handles at sides, bow and stern, as well as paddle keepers, tie-down eyelets and a bow storage bungee
