Product Description

A full-size, tandem touring kayak that fits in the back of your hatchback, SUV or shortbed pickup!

 
The Point 65 Mercury GTX Tandem is a high performance, stable, decked touring kayak with two large cockpits, but what makes it special is the way it breaks apart into four pieces for storing and transportation. The Mercury GTX features an innovative, patented Snap-TAP system for fast, easy, secure attachment when you're ready to paddle.
 
Easy as 1-2-3!
When disassembled, the Mercury GTX Tandem's four pieces each weigh less than an easily-manageable 24.3lbs. For even easier stowing, the 42" nose section fits snugly into one of the cockpits. You'll be able to transport them to the water in your SUV, crossover, mini van, hatchback or pickup and when you get home they won't take up as much room in your garage or shed.
 
Go Solo or Go Big!
Created by award-winning design engineer Magnus De Brito, the Mercury GTX Tandem turns into a solo performer just by leaving off one of the mid-section pieces. For even more fun, get together with other Mercury paddlers and by simply snapping in their mid-sections you'll transform your tandem tourer into a triple, quadruple...heck the record so far is a 100-man kayak!
 
Performance
The Mercury GTX Tandem is a fast, yet comfortably stable and straight tracking kayak. The rotomolded polyethylene construction provides a combination of strength and impact resistance that most other materials can’t match.
 
Onboard Storage
There is lots of dry storage space with powder-dry hatches fore and aft. The round bow hatch is 9 1/2" x 9 1/2", while the oval stern hatch is a spacious 17 5/8" x 10 3/8". These easily accessible, watertight compartments will keep essential gear dry and out of the way. Bungee tiedowns on the deck allow you to stow more items within quick reach. And of course there are cup holders.
 
AIR Seat
The Mercury GTX Tandem cockpits are equipped with ergonomically designed AIR seats. The AIR seats, with pneumatically adjustable backrests, give both paddlers an extremely comfortable and perfectly adjustable seating position. Seat covers feature highly durable and comfortable, honeycomb patterned material combined with mesh-like fabric which is laminated and molded over EVA foam on the seat and back.
 
Comfort
The large size of the comfy padded cockpits makes for easy entry and exit and fits most paddlers. They are also equipped with foot braces, which provide for good leg support, and a comfortable paddling position. Add a spray cover (sold separately) and you can enjoy a dry ride even in rough conditions.
 
Keel Rudder Skeg
The Mercury GTX Tandem comes complete with an efficient, ingenious, foot-operated keel rudder skeg featuring the innovative Symmetry Skeg System, which allows you to drop the skeg/rudder to tremendously improve maneuverability compared to conventional add-on rudders commonly found on other kayaks.
