BY NIGEL FOSTER, FOR NIGEL FOSTER
The Whisky 16 Rocker is the ultimate playboat in 3-layer ultra tough Polyethylene, designed by Nigel Foster, for ultra-precise handling and maneuverability. Even so, an absolute novice feels like Nigel Foster in
the cockpit of a Whisky 16. On gentle waters the boat is comfortable, stable, and easily maneuvered – an ideal boat to develop skills.
For the experienced paddler, the Whisky 16 Rocker is perfect for getting in and out of rocky outcrops, surfing on tidal races or maneuvering. With its fuller bow and stern shape to reduce plunging, the Whisky 16 is designed to make the most of rough water, surf, and currents. It is perfect for day trips but spacious enough for a self-contained expedition paddling.
The Whisky 16 Rocker has a more distinctive Rocker (the hull has a distinctive banana shape) compared to the Whisky 16 Tourer. The Rocker makes it more maneuverable and nimble which is great when paddling in waves or surf and going in and out of rock gardens along the coast for fun and Rock hopping. The Tourer, on the other hand, has a lower Rocker (the hull is more at) which gives the kayak more speed and tracking which is ideal for touring.

The 3-layer PE construction gives the Whisky 16 stiffness and strength while decreasing the weight. The Whisky 16 has two large oval aft and bow hatches, a large round day hatch behind the cockpit for access to items while on the water, and the Whisky hatch, a smaller round hatch in front of the key-hole cockpit that opens to an under-deck compartment
