Eskimo 17 Take-A-Part

Easy Rider Eskimo 17' 3-piece Kevlar/Graphite Kayak

Easy Rider Eskimo 17' 3-piece Kevlar/Graphite kayak for sale
I purchased this kayak several years ago and have never put it in the water.  It had been owned previously by an avid paddler who took impeccable care of it.  Aside from a few scratches on the bottom of the hull from normal use, it is in nearly perfect condition. It still shines like new. While it looks great hanging in the garage, I suppose it's time to find a more fitting home for it. This is a very high quality kayak which is still in production and currently sells new for $5,500.  This package also includes nearly every accessory available.  If you were to order this kayak and accessory package today, the cost including shipping would be $7,650.  
Here's a list of the included accessories with their current selling price:
Super Rain/Dust Cover, expedition-grade, Coated nylon, 10 oz., for cartopping & storage  $150
Deluxe Foam Seat "The Spoiler" Injection-molded, very comfortable & insulating  $60
Knee Braces, installed, for 29" - 36" inseam  $175
Bilge Pump with Float Sleeve  $35
Downwind Spinnaker Rig, (top section of mast is missing)  $500
Travel/Storage Bags for Take-A-Part Kayaks, set of 3  $750
Also included are the following:  Self-centering foot-control rudder; quick-adjustable foot pedal with replaceable toe plates; adjustable seat and adjustable backrest; bow and stern hatch assemblies with hardtop covers; watertight fiberglass bulkheads; elastic deck tie-downs; paddle-park cleats; paddle-float rescue tie-downs; security eye-strap; compass; deluxe outside seam; special deck moldings for Airfoil & Spinnaker Sails.

Here's what EasyRider has to say about this kayak:
Eskimo 17 was the first model of our Eskimo series introduced to the boating world. From the outset, the Eskimo 17 Take-A-Part was targeted to be a state-of-the-art design to satisfy the needs of the most demanding adventure traveler.  It was accepted with overwhelming enthusiasm and quickly deemed the most capable and best-looking seacruiser on the market.

This design quickly proved to be the ideal solution for the world traveler who does not want to sacrifice the safety, reliability, ruggedness, and performance that only a hardshell kayak can offer.
To top it off, the heavy-duty Kevlar®/Graphite construction can take the wear and tear of corals or barnacles that would spell trouble for any skin-type craft.
This 17-footer is capable of carrying the gear for just about any seacruising trip or expedition and can be comfortably paddled by persons both large and small.
Design, performance, and outfitting of the Eskimo 17 Take-A-Part are identical to the 1-piece version.
The Eskimo's dry ride comes from its high-volume bow and graceful, raked ends. The boat handles well in all sea conditions, including chop and stiff breezes.
The hull design is extremely well balanced and handles well off the wind. The streamlined, high-performance hull slices through the waves with minimum resistance and, with its low profile, the boat tracks well against annoying crosswinds.
James Chute, boat tester for CANOE MAGAZINE, writes:
“...Eskimo has good initial stability for photography and fishing, while the final stability is just short of phenomenal. This combination is quite evident when eskimo-rolling: once the boat turns the corner, it fairly leaps to the upright position... I was most impressed by the Eskimo's excellent surfing manners... In this boat, when the seas come from behind, you'll just get a smooth lift with full control. In short, the Eskimo's basic design is that of a forgiving, but fully capable ocean tourer... The Eskimo has one final feature that makes it ideal for ocean touring: it will bring you back home!"
