The V12 is designed to be the ultimate downwind machine for advanced to elite level paddlers. The updated design has more rocker, a reconfigured cockpit for a drier ride and a more responsive rudder position.
The V12 is faster than the V10 on flatwater and is a good choice for those looking to move up. As soon as the wind and waves pick up the new V12 is the weapon of choice for the advanced to elite paddler. If you are after a really fast boat on flat water that can also handle rough stuff will find a good fit in the V12.
