Custom Fitting, Options & Accessories

NDK remains committed to building highly customized sea kayaks for paddlers. Custom built Nigel Dennis Kayaks are our norm here at MIKCo. Special layups, colors, and graphics are just a few options from a range of performance features. We place most custom boat orders in September; they are built over the wiinter for delivery in the spring.


Full price new boat sales include custom-cut hip and thigh pads for enhanced contact between you and your boat, and NDK kayak with custom foamfront bulkhead foam for paddlers with custom front bulkheads. We also foam and fit any other boats by appointment, if you are interested in the advantages of increased contact, better seating position, and longer term comfort.

  • custom front bulkhead (highly recommended for many)
  • choice of skeg
  • seat variations
  • special reinforcing
  • recessed deck fittings
  • under deck pump holders
  • in-cockpit additions
  • compasses
  • specialized backbands

Choose your colors for your new NDK and add graphics. Nigel Dennis Kayaks can be ordered in an array of standard and custom colors. You design the look of your deck, hull, trim, deck lines, and keel strip.

Celtic paddles are MIKCo's paddle of choice. Talk to us about how the various blade shapes can enhance your personal paddling style.

MIKCo recommends Snapdragon sprayskirts, which may be custom sized to all cockpit openings.

"Let us probe the silent places, let us seek what luck betide us; Let us journey to a lonely land I know. There's a whisper on the night-wind, there's a star agleam to guide us, And the Wild is calling, calling...let us go."    Robert Service
