The Yukon Yak is our versatile mid-sized boat, and a good fit for most paddlers.
The Yukon Yak is our mid-size expeditionary / multi-purpose boat. With whitewater & cargo-carrying hull features, the Yak is our most popular model for adventurers and backcountry river-runners.
The Yukon Yak is a good, high-performance fit for paddlers who range between 5 feet 8 inches (1.73 meters) and 6 feet(1.83 meters) tall, and lets smaller paddlers carry large loads. If you're between 5'8" and 6',and looking for an all-purpose boat or the best whitewater performance,the Yak is probably the right size for you.
Note about extended models: The stern of the extended model will extend another 3". This upgrade is very small and really only noticeable for people running lots of Class 3-4 whitewater.
