Two Fabulous Folding Kayaks for Sale - Gumusluk

We have 2 Pakboat Puffin Swift folding kayaks for sale, one green, one blue. We originally imported them from the States and they are both in excellent condition. It is hard to explain the concept, but basically you slot the lightweight aluminium frame together, stretch the skin over the frame, put air into the side pockets and away you go. An extract from test describes them as follows.... “Folding kayaks are amazing boats. They are the descendants of ancient boats made of animal skins stretched over frames made from wood and bones, and combine modern technology with this ancient design. They’re incredibly seaworthy, they can travel in small packages with you in a compact car, they can be paddled, sailed, rowed, and even powered, if you like. They can be taken out in weather that would send far larger boats back to port. They’re used by the military forces of many nations for their stealth and portability. And they’re fun.” which sums them up perfectly. We have taken them for hours along the Gumusluk coast and once got caught out when we stopped at the beach for lunch and the weather changed, so we came back in quite rough seas – and were amazed how well they handled it. The website for detailed information about size, performance, construction, etc is Welcome to Pakboats - Folding Canoes and Kayaks and the models we have are Puffin Swifts. We have various accessories too – repair kits, life jackets, paddles, spray covers, etc. The cost new for the Swift is US$ 940 (around £620.00) from the States and we also had to pay import duties, but they are a lot more expensive to buy in the UK. They have since come on the plane with us from Ireland to the UK and then to Turkey and as they only weigh 11.8 kilos each (a bit more with the oars, etc) it is easy to take them anywhere – I have always wanted to take them to Venice to paddle round the canals! I have a snippet of my husband kayaking along the Gumusluk coast on YouTube at YouTube - ‪Kayaking in Gumusluk‬‏ and a slightly longer video of him setting off from Gumusluk harbour at YouTube - ‪John in his Kayak‬‏ …. but there are a lot of other better videos from other people if you do a general search for PakBoats or folding kayaks (not to be confused with inflatable kayaks – these are high performance, high tech, seaworthy crafts). Amazingly, they pack down into a small soft travel bag and they will both fit into the boot of a car and -once you get the hang of assembly - they only take 15-20 mins each to prepare. We are selling them for £350 each, and we are in Gumusluk (Bodrum Peninsular) for collection. Please PM me if you have any questions! Best wishes, Shazeroo

Good luck with the sale.

Re: Two Fabulous Folding Kayaks for Sale - Gumusluk

...yes, they are excellent - we love them! Meanwhile, on another matter, I have just emailed you.... because I am relunctantly going to be dragged (kicking and screaming) into the 21st century because in order to sell the house - as you so rightly said - we realise that we have to bite the bullet and get a phone! I hate the things, but sense has prevailed and we realise we need to be contactable for viewings and so forth - so I have sent you an email to ask advice on how to get up and running - probably with Turkcell I think? Back to the Kayaks...... having a tel. no. will obviously also be a help for selling them too... and if you are interested, let us know and we will bring them down for you to try - I can picture you paddling up the coast with Mavi and Dillon sitting on the bow!!

Hi again, we have not had any response... probably because of the price which might sound steep! However, they are actually an excellent bargain at this price... and if anyone does want them, we would definitely be open to offers!

Re: Two Fabulous Folding Kayaks for Sale - Gumusluk

Hi, just found your proposal. Are the kayaks still available? Did you get a telephone Connection meanwhile? If you have a mobile phone - a hazir kart would be an easy prepaid solution. Would it be of any help to send you my number? Hope to hear from you, Cheers, Erol

...just to clarify, by open to offers, I meant a price reduction of 5-10% or thereabouts. They are already priced extremely low (if you check the internet for them you can verify this) and we would rather keep them ourselves than give them away too cheaply (we are only selling as our house is for sale and we want to get rid of as much as we can before we sell). We had a very nice guy come to view them today and he has gone away to think about whether or not he wants to buy one of them... but he only wants one so either one or possibly both are still For Sale at this time.
Best wishes,
Shazeroo
