Used Kayak/Stand Up Paddleboards Policy

Used kayaks are sold as is. All sales are first come, first serve, and non-returnable (including on-line and telephone sales). We highly recommend inspecting the kayak/SUP in person before purchase.

Kayaks/SUPs can only be picked up at the stores. We do not ship kayaks/SUPs unless you make your own transport arrangements. See section above to get details for arranging shipping.

All kayaks are serviceable but might need non-essential parts (handles, bungee). Most sit-on-tops will not have backrests unless it is permanently attached. *MBK will repair scupper leaks within 30 days of purchase of a used sit-on-top.

Kayaks must be picked up within 7 days of purchase or storage fees will be charged.

Online sales - Because used kayaks/SUPs are limited in quantity and can sell quickly, there is a chance that kayaks might be sold before we can update them online.

International Shipping

We cannot ship International orders.
