Cobra Kayaks

The secret to great kayaking, whether you are an experienced “yakker” or simply seeking family fun, is to choose the right kayak for you and your paddling needs.

With over 20 years of cutting edge design and pioneering kayak building technology, Cobra now offers a range of 17 Kayaks , one of the largest premium recreational kayak styles to choose from in the world.

Cobra raises the bar in the development of performance oriented, recreational kayaks with the introduction of our Superlightweight (SLS) Series. The SLS is a revolutionary new technology which combines the traditional toughness of polyethylene hulls with the lightness of premium boats – without the cost penalty. Cobra SLS kayaks will be 30% lighter, on average, than our current kayaks. See our  ”New Kayak Release”  section for further release news


To help find the right kayak for you we have split our range into three broad categories:

  • Surf and Fun:  The four kayaks in this group range from the Play, a small, compact, lightweight yet versatile 10′.  Great for any paddler to have a fun day on the water up, through the size range to our best selling 12′, 600 lb capacity Tandem. We have the size and style to fit your needs, all offering great value for money.
  • Fishing.  The big new wave in kayaking.  Cobra offers a range of four models especially designed for fishing and diving, with the flexibility and deck space for personal customization. From lake, stream, in-shore or off-shore, Cobra kayaks will meet your fishing needs.
  • Touring. Whether you are looking for long-range paddling or a good day “out there”, Cobra’s two Touring kayaks provide fast paddling and massive storage for your gear. Look for the two new ultra-lites in our touring range later in 2013.

In addition to our standard range above, Cobra’s specialist division features high performance surfing kayaks and competition boats that can be ordered on demand direct from our factory. Check out our SP (Special Performance) page.

Cobra’s Accessory page let you choose from the large optional accessory range to further customise your kayak.
