The Delta 17 is an excellent choice for paddlers looking to cruise on lakes, paddle extended trips or have fun in ocean swells. The Delta 17 is a veritable champion in the surf and delivers its abilities with speed and grace. Its v-shaped hull, pronounced chine and moderate rocker offer paddlers a smooth transition to edge and impressive tracking. It features our Press-Lock hatch system, multi-position Contour II Seat System, front deck Day-Pod, dual-density soft grip handles and innovative bungee risers.

The unique hull shape of the Delta 17 was influenced by both British and North American design concepts, creating a beautiful blend of performance and predictability. The hybrid design provides good initial and excellent secondary stability allowing easy edge transitions and excellent handling characteristics in various sea conditions. The Delta 17 is an excellent choice for paddlers looking to improve and hone their skills whether it’s cruising on inland lakes or surfing ocean swells. It’s ample volume and large hatches allow plenty of stowage room for those extended trips. It’s loaded with all the usual Delta features including the super comfortable and fully adjustable Delta seat system as well as a moulded compass mount. Its beautiful to look at and a delight to paddle.


Delta kayaks are built from thermoformed, high impact, light weight plastics. Their boats offer superior weather and UV resistance while maintaining excellent abrasion resisitance and a high-gloss finish.

Adjustable Seat:
All Delta touring kayaks include an adjustable seat pan. This allows paddlers to shift the seat forward for a tighter fit in the cockpit or to slide the seat back for more legroom.
