BIG BOAT, BIG WATER
Sitting inside the Everest’s wide-mouth cockpit, even our largest tester (6’1″, 195 lbs) said it swallowed him, with tons of room to spare. This multiday boat can accommodate a paddler up to 230 pounds, plus any overnight gear. With all that space, the ride is Cadillac smooth, and the Everest’s mass drives it cleanly through even the grabbiest of holes. Testers found it “fast, stable, and predictable,” making it a powerful creeker or expedition boat. 8’6″; 82.5 gal; pyranhaus.com
Bonus: Next spring, the Everest will be equipped with an integrated backpack harness for portages.
