“Hi, we would like to give some feedback on your 3m “spindrift” dinghy, which we purchased in 2012 as a tender for our sailboat, you may remember scalloping out the nose for us so it fits on our foredeck inside the inner fore stay? Always quick to complain if something isn’t right, it’s only fair we give Kudos when it is!
We have covered a few miles since, moving thru SE Asia from Andaman Islands East of India thru SE Asia to Philippines, Palau and now New Guinea to South Pacific. It has been used, even abused in every condition and dragged over reefs, coral, left lie against sharp clans on pylons etc. all without once letting us down. It has often had up to 200 l fuel or water and two people aboard no problem, and our 2 dogs also love it for its stability.
I have no hesitation in recommending it and have had many comments on its simple robust design, it handles our 9.8 hp Tohatsu well, although it will only plane when 1 person is aboard, it’s only flaw in our opinion. I am going to add plastic fins to the outboard leg which I hope will help this.
Thanks for a great value for money product and your service when it came to the alterations and welding.”

“First ride day. Awesome Aussie company. Quality product. Perfect for what I wanted. Thank you Finn kayak”
“Hi Finn kayaks, here is my little castaway that is perfect for fishing out of in my locals creeks. It tracks beautifully and is very stable, I spend many pleasurable hours in this little ripper! Cheers.”
“Took my 3m spindrift out in the sound chasing salmon yesterday. We done just as good if not better than the big boats out there.”
Just thought I would pop in and say a massive thank you for our kayaks which arrived today. We love them entirely. We are dry, happy and can’t wait to get more.
Thanks and thanks again”

My replacement straps arrived this week.
I would like to thank you for offering a level of service far above the average consumer experience these days. I now have 2 Finn kayaks and wouldn’t consider any other brand in the future, and that goes for all my friends!
“Dear Mr Duke
My brother and I were plucked safely from the ocean after our yacht sank off the Zuytdorp Cliffs about 55 nautical miles south of steep point. One of the useful objects that we launched from our yacht when the decision to abandon ship was given was the Finn Gizmo kayak.
I used the Gizmo as my life raft. I wanted you to know that I believe the Gizmo helped save my life. I know it isn’t necessarily supposed to be a life saving device but its strength, buoyancy and stability certainly contributed to me maintaining come composure, strength and energy during this ordeal.
So it is a very special thanks I’d like to give to you, Finn Kayaks and especially the Gizmo for helping to keep me afloat.”
