After a very enriching Olympic cycle, where we reached enormous success with the Vanquish II, it was the time to bring something new to the market.

The amount of expertise we got and received from athletes, coaches and ourselves, was huge, and we actually had to hold ourselves back not to operate some of this ideas before the 2008 Olympics.

The improvements we have applied are consistent with ones previously made, what means the new generation of Vanquishes is one more step in the direction in the quest of the perfect boat.

More technically we reached a new level of stability, glide and performance. The new line is easier to handle direction and glide wise, allowing more comfort what leads to even better performance. Also changes were operated in the deck to help the athlete with more mobility, to give him a bigger feeling of “transmission” and “connection” to the boat and very important a balanced, aggressive and good looking kayak.

In what concerns the weight ranges they were kept the same, as well as the sizing in the C1’s where we keep the same 4 sizes. In the C2 class appears the only new model the C2 Vanquish III M.

The new K1, C1 and C2 models are now in production, the K2 and K4 models are expected in March 09.

One of the big advantages of the composites is that they don’t require much maintenance; of course there are some crucial rules to extend the lifetime of your boat:

  • Do not put it in the sun for long periods.
  • Do not tight it too strongly in the racks.
  • Only allow professionals to repair your boat.
  • Never store or transport it inside the cover if the boat is not well dry.
  • And treat it like a baby.

Boats should be used only by trained persons or under supervision.
The use should be done under the rules established for each boat class.

Trimming
After receiving your boat, we recommend you do some tests to find your best trim, to find it you should:

  1. Start with the seat in the middle position.
  2. Move the foot rest to fit you.
  3. Check the behaviour at competition speed, the bow should be around 1 cm into the water, in a stopped position the bow should be well under water.
  4. You should move your seat and foot rest together until the boat is performing as described in point 3.

This is just one of many methods of finding the best position, though it always changes slightly from person to person, but these are the basic rules.

Rudder Adjusting
Making your rudder straight is an essential part of enjoying your boat.
In order to make it 100% perfect you should use the straps inside your boat:

  1. Hold the rudder blade in the straight position;
  2. Use the straps one at a time, until the T bar goes straight in the middle.

While paddling you can also make little adjustments by pulling the strap on the side the T Bar is tending to.

M.A.R. Kayaks, Lda. offers you a 2-year warranty on this boat, but it is conditioned by the following procedures:

  • Misuse
  • Damage caused by transport
  • Repairs made by unauthorised personnel
  • Removal or damage of plates and stickers

This warranty covers any fabrication defects on the boat or parts, as well as changes in the materials characteristics.

To present a claim:

  • Transport Damage: Claim as you receive the boat to the transporters (on the CMR document) and to the insurance agent on your insurance document, also you should inform us of the damage, as well as send pictures and details.
  • Other: Send pictures together with a description of the damage as well as the boat number, this will help us evaluate and fix or replace the boat faster.
