Performance touring modular kayak. Proven in the roughest conditions of Alaska!

AS EASY AS 1, 2, 3 - The Point 65 Mercury GTX 14/18 is a high performance, stable, decked modular touring kayak with a large cockpit with which to explore and then take back home in the trunk of your car. Like the recreational versions, the Mercury features the innovative Snap-Tap™ system. The Point 65 Snap-Tap™ technologies are protected under US and European patents.

The 415 cm/ 13’7’’ Mercury GTX breaks apart into three manageable pieces each weighing less than 11 kg/ 24,3 lbs. The 100cm/39’’ nose section fit’s snugly into the cockpit, making for easy storage, for example in the trunk of your car. With an additional midpiece, your Mercury GTX Solo transforms into a 545cm/17’10’’ high performance, expedition tandem. Created by award-winning design engineer Magnus De Brito, the Mercury is a fun, versatile, high performance touring kayak.

PERFORMANCE KAYAKING - Fast, fun while comfortably stable and straight tracking kayak that snaps apart and re-assembles in only a few seconds making it by far the easiest to carry touring kayak. The rotomolded polyethylene construction provides a combination of strength and impact resistance that most other materials can’t match.
It has plenty of dry storage space with powder dry hatches front and aft. The Mercury GTX 14/18 is a rigid high-performance expedition solo/tandem - touring kayak that you can carry with a smile on your face and which will fit in the back of most cars. It will also fit comfortably in SUV, crossover and minivans with plenty of room to spare.

SOLO, TANDEM, TRIPLE ETC. - ALL IN ONE! No need to buy two kayaks. Snap in the tandem mid-section and your Mercury 14 expedition Solo is transformed into a high-performance Mercury 18 Tandem - so you can bring a friend. Add another midsection and your Mercury becomes a triple and so forth! The record so far? LL. Bean put together a 100-man kayak using the Point65 Tequila! for their 100-year anniversary event. Click here to see the video » Never before has a kayak been so much fun and so easy to own.

ULTIMATE SEAT COMFORT. The Mercury GTX is equipped with an extremely comfortable AIR seat. The AIR seat, with a pneumatically adjustable backrest, gives the paddler an extremely comfortable and perfectly adjustable seating position. The seat covers are made of highly durable and comfortable, honey-comb patterned material in combination with mesh-like fabric
which is laminated and molded over EVA foam.
COMFORT AND PERFORMANCE - The large size of the comfy padded cockpit makes for easy entry and exit and fits any paddler.

The Mercury GTX 14/18 comes fully equipped featuring an efficient ingenious keel rudder skeg featuring the innovative Symmetry skeg system, which allows you to drop the skeg/rudder with tremendously improved maneuverability compared to normal addon rudders which are most common on kayaks. a large aft oval and a round forward hatch creating two accessible watertight compartments for your gear.

Mercury Tandem 2nd Review after some years

I wrote a Review in 2019. Still using our Mercury in yearly holydays at Lake Plön in nothern Germany, ocasionally on River Ems and on lakes in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern . We are still quite satisfied with the boat, which is used as single or double boat.
In the year 2022 we had a leakage in the first cockpit compartment. That resulted NOT from an impact but from carrying it. I think it came from swinging between the compartments. So If you own a Mercury, be careful, not to lift it with heavy equipment in it, which is also forbidden by the instructions. We did NOT do this but it happend despite it. And If you lift it on a small kayaktrailer, do not let it swing! Always one person on the front lever and one on the back, at least in the double configuration. The PE material ist quite vulnarable for cracks in this position. But maybe we soley had bad luck. Luckly the general importer for Germany helped us getting a new cockpit nearly for free. Thanks go out to element2 company and its CEO!

An excellent modular decked kayak

A modular decked kayak excellent for exploration, light, fast, maneuverable, stable.
I am very happy with my purchase and all the accessories that go with it, fast delivery.
Be careful, however, with the packaging of the kayak elements, the cardboard is very fragile, it was damaged during transport with DHL.

Don’t buy it!

It’s a toy kayak, poor design, I do not recommend.

Not received

I'm sorry, but I haven't received your shipment yet.

Great kayak

The connection system was my only fear before the purchase. When I saw the system in real life, my fears passed immediately. The connections "works" as they have to do and all the kayak body is well joined. The water behaviour is very good and the stability is optimal. Good kayak for calm waters and tourism! :)
