|Why buy a kayak from a distant dealer?
And how would you do it, if you wanted to?
In an ideal world, you wouldn't buy a kayak from a distant dealer. You would drive (or maybe paddle) to the nearest kayak shop and have an unlimited selection available right there. You would sit in each of the boats and test paddle them. Problem is, the real world doesn't work that way. Every kayak dealer is limited in what they sell. And our kayaks -- being relatively new to the U.S. market and lacking national advertising and distribution networks -- are hard to find in many, many areas.
If getting a physical "feel" for a boat is so important, why would you even consider buying from a distant dealer?
Well, several reasons come to mind:
1) Price. The economics of fiberglass kayaks are now (if they weren't already) becoming prohibitive for most people. Our kayaks, as we've mentioned, are in a class of their own when it comes to price.
2) These are fun, beautiful, and distinctive boats. Nothing is quite like them.
3) By becoming the first in your area to own a Janautica, Point 65 N or QCC kayak, you will do a great favor to your paddling friends. They'll be able to test paddle the boat -- and they just might want one too.
If you're still skeptical, we don't blame you. We don't exactly expect someone to log onto our website for the first time and then buy a boat over the phone twenty minutes later. While it's not ideal, buying a boat at a distance can still be the result of an informed, thoughtful process, and doesn't necessarily involve much risk on your part. Here's what we suggest:
