I have a 17' Sea Kayak, a Perception Eclipse 17 for sale in the Airalite material lay up for $1500/bo. I am not exactly sure of the year it was made but its always been stored indoors and is in truly great shape. There are a few minor superficial scuffs of typical use but no deep scratches or issues that are apparent. In the photo of the bottom of the hull, the marks/lines are wet grass that stuck to it not scratches as it has been well care for. Its a fast stable kayak that can handle a large payload with little effect on performance. I have two of these for sale. The other is a slightly faster/narrower fiberglass version with a slightly different hull. See photos and my other listing. I used these for extended kayak camping trips in the Adirondacks and for paddling/fishing in the Great Lakes. I have even surfed them a bit though that is not their intended purpose. They cut through the waves and chop well. I have had them on some larger rivers and handle fine in moderate current too. They track well and can take you the distance as they are fast once you get them moving not being the lightest kayaks out there. That said they are quite roomy to accommodate larger paddlers. I am 5'10, 185# and fit with tons of extra room though adjustments can be made to fit much smaller paddlers too. The hatches are the best and driest that I have used in any kayak! They have neoprene covers with a rubber rand then there is a hard cover that snaps on over top with webbing straps. The straps are made with a secondary clasps to accommodate more gear on top. See the photo with the 30l blue dry bag on the deck. These were amazing for camping bringing a few extra things ;) and need to borrow the idea for my other kayaks. I am only selling these as I don't get these out often enough to justify storage. Check out reviews on Paddling.com or elsewhere to confirm further specs and read reviews.
