Designed for people shy on spare acreage but who dream of spending their time kayaking, fishing or sailing (via the optional Sail kit).
The compact i9S offers on-the-water performance that rivals rigid boats, and its rugged, PVC-vinyl construction and reinforced underside eliminate fears of rocky beaches. Powered by the MirageDrive 180 + Kick-Up Fins and equipped with an ultra-comfortable, Vantage CT seat, you don’t have to sacrifice power and comfort when you’re tight on storage.
