Dagger Katana

Crossover doesn’t mean compromise.

The Katana was born from our whitewater heritage. Stable, forgiving and fun, the Katana has enough edge to perform on the toughest whitewater. Today's discerning paddler expects a boat that can handle whitewater, but can also make calm water paddling enjoyable – a boat that can handle all of the gear for a multi-day expedition, but can be sporty and fun on day trips. Welcome to the Dagger Katana, a boat that can do it all without compromising performance.

The drop skeg gives the Katana superior performance on calm water, giving you more speed and efficiency. For multi-­‐day trips, a rear hatch and a removable bulkhead give the Katana unsurpassed cargo capacity. Winner of Outside Magazine’s 2014 Gear of the Year award, the Katana is a boat with limitless potential for adventure.
