Xcape 4.0 crossover SIB/ Kayak
The Xcape 4.0 Packable Crossover Kayak is available in onyx black with red striping and made using the latest generation 1100 Denier (0.9mm) PVC reinforced fabric with polyester support which offers excellent abrasion and tear resistance.
This boat is very different from other Xcape best class boats and provides a very different and stable experience on the water. It is the ultimate crossover between a quality inflatable boat and a good sea kayak.
When paired with an ePropulsion Spirit 1.0 Plus electric engine, it is perfect for leisurely days out exploring the sea, lakes and lochs. Put a 6hp short shaft petrol engine on it, point it into a few waves and you will love how this CAT C (inshore up to 2m waves) handles.
Due to the design and hull shape this boat is becoming increasingly popular for fishing and, unlike most inflatable boats, has 5 sealed air compartments for added safety. The flat bottom allows for easy landing and shallow water access. This really is a boat that gives you the best of both worlds.
Each seam is hand glued with four layers of bonded fabric which offers maximum strength and durability. Two sheets are overlapped and glued before two re-enforcement layers are attached either side.
Glued seams offer better durability to welded seams when the PVC product is designed to be inflated and deflated on a regular basis. Xcape’s choice of fabric and seam design means their marine boats are built tough and designed to last.
Internal Bung System
The Xcape 4.0 uses an internal bung system which can be opened and closed from onboard and allows easy draining of any unwanted water.
Using the latest in Air-deck technology, the Air Floor is an integral part of the boat design. It offers rigidity to the boat and gives you great stability. Our lightweight, removable, high pressure air floor system is constructed using the latest drop stitch technology. You will find the same technology being used in many inflatable paddle boards. This system is comprised of thousands of interwoven stitches holding both sections of fabric in parallel.
Once inflated, this system provides extreme rigidity to the boat and ensures set up and pack down is easy and quick. The air floor’s construction absorbs vibrations and is comfortable underfoot. When deflated, the air mat is rolled up for ultimate portability.
The Xcape 4.0 optimises its size by utilising adjustable sliding seats. This allows the occupants to have maximum leg room or storage area if boating alone.
5 x Valves
When Xcape’s in-house team design their range of boats, safety is always the main focus. Using quality valves is imperative, so the whole range of inflatable boats and kayaks utilise Halkey-Roberts valves designed for easy inflation and deflation.
The Xcape 4.0 boasts 5 air tight inflation compartments including the floor, which greatly enhance the safety of the craft. Having extra air compartments will maintain stability in the unlikely event of losing pressure in any of the compartments. All valves have a double seal for leak protection and are widely used by quality inflatable boat manufacturers.
The transom is made with marine plywood and coated with tough 0.9mm, 1100 Denier PVC fabric then fitted with outboard / electric motor protection plates.
