Designed specifically as a river boat, Hank McGregor has won the four Bergs in this boat, and Andy Birkett won the Dusi and Non-Stop Dusi in it as well.
This K1 has had great success on flat-water marathons too, winning the 2011 World Marathon Championships & 2013 U23 World Marathon Championships.
It has good manoeuvrability and excellent sprint or maximum speed. It additionally has a high cruising speed, and requires little effort to keep it on a plane, which is crucial for a marathon boat. It can take a paddler of up to 80kg on a river.
It has a round hull from the nose through to the tail, with a full tail giving good volume preventing the tail from sinking into the water, alleviating the porpoise effect that can occur in boats and ensuring good speed through a turn. This is the ultimate river boat for the lighter paddler.
