My Dagger Katana 9.7 Cross Over kayak in the "River" Specification (with the full very adjustable and comfortable Ergo Contour outfitting which cost about £200 more than the current "Action" specification) is relunctantly FOR SALE.  Only selling because I need the money and space for my rash impulse buy of a new sea kayak!  Very good condition with only minor scratches.  Always carefully looked after, stored in the dark inside a dry garage out of sunlight and regularlyy coated with 303 Aerospace Protectant to  keep the plastic in good condition and protect from UV light.  Viewing recommended and a test paddle on the Norfolk Broads could be arranged if required for serious buyers.  Suitable for everyone from raw beginners to expert paddlers and the crossover means it can be paddled on most types of water.

 Dagger Katana kayak review

We have tested the Dagger Katana 9.7 "Cross Over" kayak on the Norfolk Broads, Coniston Water in the Lake District (in a Force 6 gusting 7), Scottish Sea Lochs and on the North Norfolk Coast.  It is a great, versatile, kayak and with the "River" specification Dagger Contour Ergo outfitting very comfortable too.

As a  "Cross Over" kayak it is basically a multi-purpose do everything kayak capable of being paddled on both white water/rapids and on flat/calm waters and even light coastal/estuary cruising and surfing.  The rear bulkhead with hatch and good size storage compartment allows you to take a picnic with you or camping gear for a multi day trip.  The drop down skeg (fin) helps to keep the boat tracking in a straight line when cruising on the flat but with it retracted the rockered (curved) hull shape makes it very manoeuvrable on white water up to grade 3 or 4 if you have the capability.  The high volume, soft chines and comforting stability also make it a forgiving boat for beginners on white water.  The Katana comes in two sizes the 9.7 (feet) and the 10.4 (feet) to cater for a large range of paddler weights.
