At 12 feet in length with a 30” beam, the Caribbean 12’s stability is extraordinary, yet the highly efficient hull design and hard, abrasion resistant Carbonlite material lets her glide through the water with ease. Tracking is exceptional for a twelve footer, making travel over distance much easier. Easy turns are accomplished with a slight lean and sweep. Eddyline applied the principles of the unique Gull Wing configuration on the Caribbean hull to retain efficiency and tracking while maximizing stability and maneuverability. The height of the seat produced by this configuration allows more comfort and better visibility while allowing the cockpit and tank well to drain effectively.
The large front hatch, center day hatch and rear hatch give easy access to most of the interior space. The cockpit features Sea Dog foot pedals, Gear Bucket in the Center Day Hatch and a comfortable high back seat. The seat well even has its own drain to keep you dry! Perfectly balanced carbon fiber side carry handles make the carry to the water’s edge effortless. Mounting tracks for accessories and an abundance of mounting surfaces provide a wide variety of options for customizing the boat to suit your specific needs. Two scuppers in the cockpit and two in the tank well keep the deck drained well up to loads of 300 lbs.
Finished with our high gloss UV resistant Carbonlite material, you will appreciate all that we have incorporated into this exciting kayak. The Caribbean 12 is the perfect, lightweight platform to build out to your own specifications and custom outfitting.
Individual Factory-installed options include: Footwell traction pads, Foot Controlled Navigator Rudder, Stern Tank Well Cover, Flush Mount Rod Holders, Front Hatch Liner, and many other options.
In 1996 we gave “plastic kayaks” a whole new meaning with our Carbonlite 2000 technology. Carbonlite 2000 is a high performance co-extruded plastic laminate that is proprietary to Eddyline Kayaks. It is first made into a two layer flat sheet with a “muscle” substrate and a hard abrasion and UV resistant exterior. Then, using very high temperatures and vacuum, we form each sheet into the deck or hull of a kayak.
Carbonlite 2000 brings the technology of plastic kayaks to an entirely new level of performance. Eddyline pioneered this technology back in 1995 and Carbonlite 2000 is an Eddyline exclusive. Our material looks and performs like fiberglass with clear advantages over other plastics: dimensional stability and increased stiffness, higher heat distortion temperatures, hard glossy “non fuzzing” finishes with excellent abrasion and impact resistance, easy repairability, superior UV resistance and lighter weights. Carbonlite 2000 is extremely tough, but it is also easily repaired in the event of an accident. It has endured the test of time in the hands of many paddlers, liveries and tour operators and is highly suitable for nearly all kayak applications.
Eddyline is committed to manufacturing in an environmentally responsible manner. Carbonlite 2000 is 100% recyclable (as are the bulkheads, cockpit and seat), all scrap plastic is recycled and virtually no waste is generated.
