Billionaires of the world always have the luxuries of their yachts to revel in when they set out on getaways. Still, kayaking day trips often require them to abandon these luxuries momentarily. Not anymore. McLellan presents the Kayak 1, a lightweight, single-person recreational kayak. This over-the-top carbon-fiber craft is finished with teak, ash, and gold-plated brass fillings built by America’s Cup boat builders in New Zealand. Weighing just 36 pounds can be ordered in a range of colors, materials, and ﬁnishes to suit one’s requirements.
McLellan Jacobs Kayak 1 is the epitome of bespoke luxury. The price for it hasn’t been revealed yet, perhaps to create an even bigger buzz among the billionaires club. Kayak 1 truly strikes a fine balance between the use of contemporary materials and traditional nautical styling.
