4.5 out of 5 stars. (46)
Robert Gordon Verified Owner 12/20/2021 5.0 out of 5 stars.

We love our sturdy, convenient, comfortable tandem kayak.

John Edwards Verified Owner 9/7/2021 5.0 out of 5 stars.

We received our kayak back in the spring. It arrived weeks before it was expected to. Our first voyage was great. I managed to miss read the instructions and inadvertently cause a small leak. Sea Eagle quickly came to our rescue and repaired the kayak at no charge. Since then we have enjoyed many hour in several location and I am reminded to once again to carefully read all the instructions. The photos are from our recent excursion to one of our favorite pubs where when one paddles there, you get a but off you first pint. The Pour house, Port Townsend, WA, USA. This kayak replaces our SE 330, Still working well after 20 years. Now with one of our children.

Valerie McDonnell Verified Owner 8/16/2021 2.0 out of 5 stars.

The kayak took longer than expected to arrive. When it came, it came in two different boxes. The kayak didn't fit in the carrying bag. I tried to contact customer services more times than I can count. They finally answered saying they didn't have a bag available to fit the kayak. They then sent me a cheap $10 dollar big cargo bag that was pretty useless. The only reason I'm even giving them a 2 (instead of a 1) is because I do think the quality of my specific kayak is great. It is such a shame that the company and customer service is so bad. My best friend tried to buy the same kayak as mine and when his arrived, it was completely different than what he ordered. Not surprised. For the price tag of these kayaks, I would expect to have all pieces fit and proper customer service when something is wrong with the order/ a part doesn't fit.

Sea Eagle's reply:

Thank you for the review and feedback Valerie.

We are very sorry that the complimentary CarryBag did not work out for you. We strive to provide our customers with the best personal service possible. We hope you are enjoying the boat and are here for any of your future needs.

Please feel free to reach out to us anytime.

Just finishing a trip to Bend Oregon, first summer with our 473rl. Did a 18 mile trip on the Deschutes River and some shorter lake trips. My wife and I just love our kayak, we have had hard shells and one other inflatable, the 473rl is the best kayak we have ever used. Love the speed , finished the 18 mile river trip under 5 hours ( used to take 6 ). And the way we can get in and out of the boat very stable ( without failing in the lake or river ). Very easy to set up and take down and we can take all our gear. We are both in our sixty's........ Thank you for a great product

Key Features

The RazorLite™ Kayak's Straight Hull Design

The RazorLite™ Kayak's Straight Hull Design

An important and unique feature of the RazorLite™ Kayak is its straight hull design which provides the maximum straight hull waterline length. This feature combined with the very narrow kayak width (25" at the waterline) allows the RazorLite™ to paddle as fast as any rigid kayak. The Bow and stern molds are made of durable plastic and cut through the wind, waves, current, and water like a sharp edge straight razor on a clean close shave. With superior length to width ratio, razor sharp bow entry, straight line planing surface and a precision razor sharp stern exit at the rear these inflatable kayaks are in a performance league of their own.

The RazorLite™ Kayak's Unique Bow and Stern Design with Tapered Side Walls

The RazorLite™ Kayak's Unique Bow and Stern Design with Tapered Side Walls

The RazorLite™ Kayak's rigid bow and stern molds create the worlds very first speed entry system that leads into a double concave and then opens into a flat planing surface. The double concave design at bow allows pockets of air to enter in between the hull and the water creating lift while reducing friction and drag. The double concave at stern creates a super clean exit. The Tapered Drop Stitch Side Walls provide a rigid chine at the waterline and secondary buoyancy and stability. These features combine to enable the RazorLite™ to glide quickly and effortlessly through the water!

Bow and Stern Molds

Bow and Stern Molds

The RazorLite™ Kayak's rigid bow and stern molds create a razor sharp speed entry and exit system. The bow mold cuts through the water effortlessly at a high velocity. The water then meets the carefully designed Tapered Side Walls creating lift while reducing friction and drag, then exits just as fast as it entered at the stern mold leaving little to no wake behind.

The World's First and Only Kayak Made Entirely Of Drop Stitch Material

The World's First and Only Kayak Made Entirely Of Drop Stitch Material

The patented Sea Eagle RazorLite™ High Performance Ultra Light Kayak is the world's first and only inflatable kayak made entirely with Drop Stitch Technology throughout! This kayak uses 3" Drop Stitch material for the floor and 4" Drop Stitch material for the side walls. Our Drop Stitch material uses thousands of high tensile strength threads connecting the top and bottom fabric layers, creating thousands of I-beam supports. This enables the RazorLite™ to be inflated to a much higher pressure (10 psi) than other kayaks (3-4 psi) which increases overall rigidity. The unique Drop Stitch construction makes the RazorLite™ as fast as any rigid kayak in it's class and provides the added benefit of being able to pack in its own backpack. The RazorLite™ is as tough as nails, incredibly rigid, ultra light, and a delight to paddle. U.S. Patent 9,452,809
