Sea Kayak: Tiderace Xcite
The Xcite was recently discontinued from the Tiderace stable due to the 'rationalization' of three quite different models (Xcite, Xplore and Xcape) by the single, newly released Xceed (currently retailing for ~$5k IN SYDNEY). Only the Xcite retains the original and unique characteristics that gave this kayak the cult following that continues to this day.
My Xcite has a Rule 500 bilge pump controlled by a ‘bullet proof’ pneumatic switch. It is powered by a lithium-ion battery pack housed in a Pelican case suspended under the deck (see photos). You won’t find a cleaner, more reliable set-up.
Garmin deck compass. KeelEasy protective strip under bow and stern.
The foredeck has a FlatEarth kayak sail mount, and the underside has been carefully reinforced to transmit vertical forces to the keel (see photos). There are no ‘hard fasteners’ in this set-up (speak to me about details). It sails beautifully. Videos available upon request.
"The Xcite is the all rounder with a light, nimble feel on the water, and plenty of hull speed for light touring, with rough water performance in the very highest echelons of sea kayak designs."
I am currently updating my “fleet” and running short of storage space - so only contemplating sacrificing this absolute gem of a kayak.
It is well used, but has also been well cared for.
Expressions of interest ~$2,500 will be considered.
OPTIONAL: 0.8m FlatEarth kayak sail in very good condition with custom rigging fitted for the Xcite available separately.
