Largest Cargo Hold
P&H Scorpio MV 17’3”

The P&H Scorpio is a touring kayak often selected by intermediate to advanced paddlers. It’s a robust roto-molded polyethylene boat built to be battered by big seas and dragged up beached laden with sharps rocks and shells.

The Scorpio is a multi-day sea-touring kayak, although it can be used equally well on day trips. It has the storage capacity to store multiple weeks’ worth of gear and food, and the stability to face large swells and rough seas with confidence. It has a wide enough cockpit to provide comfort when paddling for longer days, and excellent stability to pause and eat a snack on the open ocean.

The Scorpio was built with expeditions in mind. It has molded inserts for a compass and sail system, secure split-paddle storage, and a low-profile back deck for easy rolling and re-entry.

The Scorpio comes in three sizes, the SV, MV and LV, for small, medium and larger paddlers. The hull was designed from its fiberglass sibling, the P&H Cetus MV, and its ‘v’ body with rounded chines enables this boat to glide well through the water.

The P&H Scorpio MV also comes equipped with either the CoreLite X Skeg or Skudder for even greater maneuverability. This is the ideal sea touring kayak for intermediate to advanced level paddlers who want to tackle longer expeditions and long open-water crossings.
