Delta 15’5” GT

The Delta 15.5 GT is a kayak designed for entry-level and experienced paddlers alike. This lightweight sea touring kayak has two large storage hatches in the bow and stern of the boat, as well as a day hatch to keep your precious belongings accessible and dry.

The thermoformed construction of this boat means it’s a plastic boat that carries and paddles like a fiberglass boat at half the cost. It’s a popular model for solo paddlers. It can be transported easily and has the versatility to be paddled on flat water and the open ocean for multiple days at a time.

This comfortable cruiser is great on longer trips, while its stability allows you to explore more challenging waterways. The external rudder system enables you to maneuver the boat with ease, and its long waterline and v-shaped hull make tracking in strong winds and big seas less daunting.

This boat features Delta’s Press-Lock Hatch System, making accessing and stowing your gear away easy, and the multi-position Contour II Seat System keeps you comfortable on longer crossings.

This boat is ideal for beginners and well-loved by intermediate and experienced paddlers who are looking for a lighter boat that doesn’t compromise on performance.
