The Tahiti was released in 1963 and maintains a similar build after all these years. The kayak is durably constructed of heavy-duty 26-gauge PVC, with two air chambers for security and a tubular I-beam floor for stability. The Tahiti is also extremely comfortable thanks to the specially designed inflatable seats, which offer back support in the traditional classic Sevylor color. And as with all Sevylor boats, the Tahiti's exclusive Airtight system is guaranteed not to leak. Other features include two spray covers for protection, an optional directional skeg for maximum control, Boston valves, and a repair kit.
Certified by the National Marine Manufacturers Association (NMMA), the two-person Tahiti measures 10 feet 7 inches by 2 feet 7 inches and holds up to 400 pounds.
The road from Sevylor's founding in 1948 to its current role as the dominant supplier of a wide range of inflatables--such as kayaks, boats, and towables--is a long one, with plenty of original inventions and innovations along the way. Established in a city suburb of Vitry, France, by electronics engineer Berco Grimbert, Sevylor originally built electrical accessories, with a sideline business dedicated to using its high-frequency welding machines to manufacture PVC consumer goods. The first inflatable to receive rave notice was a small bathtub called the Dou Dou. Perfect for postwar France, the inflatable tub was portable, convenient, practical, easy to clean, durable, and, best of all, affordable.
After moving to the picturesque Alsatian village of Buhl, the company expanded into developing valves, pumps, boats, inflatable pools, and a variety of water toys. In the ensuing years, Sevylor first developed a PVC that had "memory"--meaning it could return to its original shape regardless of temperature--and then made history by releasing an inflatable pool mattress with a headrest and circular pockets. In 1986, the company invented the Ski Bob, a real turning point in the evolution of the towables business. Today, Sevylor's innovative designs include tenders, hunting and fishing boats, specialty boats and kayaks, towables, snow tubes, air beds, pool floats, river tubes, swim and sport rings, and more.
