Old Town, Maine (July 1, 2012) | Download in PDF format

Old Town Canoes & Kayaks, one of the most trusted brands in the paddlesports industry, today introduced the new Twin Heron tandem kayak. A truly unique kayak, the Twin Heron features a convenient, easily removable front seat and the advanced Auto Trim Hull™, which ensures proven performance whether paddled in tandem or solo.

The Twin Heron is a great option for the outdoors family looking for a versatile watercraft. The removable front seat affords extra space for storage, quick access to gear and will even allow a dog to ride along comfortably. The Auto Trim Hull design prevents bow lift while a solo paddler is seated in the rear of the kayak.

“In terms of versatility, performance and price the Twin Heron is in a class by itself,” said Sara Knies, Old Town Marketing Director. “It’s a fantastic addition to the Heron series and in combination with the Heron Junior, also launching this year, helps make the Heron collection a fully developed family of kayaks.”

The Twin Heron features the new Glide Track foot brace system. An intuitive, easy-to-reach adjustment system, Glide Track includes comfortable contoured foot pegs with an asymmetrical shape design that cradles the paddler’s foot. Its smooth design features no sharp edges and position indicators that make it easy to match right and left peg length. Other key conveniences of the Twin Heron include comfortable carrying handles and cup holder.

The Old Town Twin Heron is also available in an Angler Edition, which includes comfortable seating, six Cannon mount receivers, two Cannon rod holders and the advanced Support Track foot brace system. Twin Heron Angler models will come in special edition angler colors.

Weight: 64 lbs
Max Capacity: 450 – 500 lbs
