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. It is equipped with an ergonomically designed seat with seat and back padding, foot braces, which provide for good leg support, and a comfortable paddling position. Add the fitting spray cover from Point 65 (Point Storm or Point Ocean size XL) and you can enjoy a dry ride even in rough conditions.

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. It also features foot pedals as well as cup holders and a comfortable seat & back pad.

nice boat

putting it together and taking it apart is not as easy as it looks in the videos, but I am still working on that.

Life changing kayak

I have been kayaking Florida waters since 1993 and I own 6 kayaks. This kayak, by far is my favorite. I can immediately go anytime I want and I do not need assistance from anyone. At first I was nervous about putting it together but it is super fast once you get the hang of it, which is very quick too. I can put together and take apart by myself.

Everywhere I go, people want to know where they can buy one.

Love my new Merkury, but a couple things could make it better

I LOVE how easy this kayak fits into the 5’ bed of my truck. It’s fast and stable! The number one thing I would improve upon is the height of the back of the seat. I am going to try to retrofit a seat back so that I can sit back and relax while paddling. Also, the kayak goes together pretty easily, but I have not mastered taking it apart by myself yet. I also have not learned how to use the rudder yet. It seems to always be askew, one way or the other, and I’m sure that’s more about me than the kayak. I may figure out some way to fix it in one position so it doesn’t move at all. I am currently disabled for a while, until I can get my Lyme disease under control. Having this kayak will give me the ability two throw it in the back of the truck, piece by piece, since I can’t handle putting a yak on the top of my truck by myself right now . Overall, I think it’s going to be a great addition to the two Jackson sit on top kayaks I already have.

Love my new kayak!!!

I still need two people to take apart, seems like snap buckle/ ratchet strap is tough to press and pull boat also!

Convenient and nicely built.

I like the product as it’s lightweight enough to move around and it’s pieces and easy enough to put together want to try it a couple of times. I did however find the rudder hard to use.
