Feathercraft Has Closed Permanently, and has stopped making folding kayaks, rafts and accessories.
However, there is a Feathercraft Replacement Parts Shop
This is a limited parts shop and is definitely a “cottage industry” – literally working out of the basement.
Parts for kayaks made prior to year 2000 are not available.
BEFORE YOU SEND A PARTS EMAIL INQUIRY — HERE’S WHAT I NEED TO KNOW —
– kayak model and year of manufacture. Just provide us with the serial number that is located on the stern deck near the rudder mount.
– Send a photo of the part that you want. If you have lost the part, you can refer to the assembly instructions online to describe the part.
– For a shipping estimate or to ship an order, I need to know your complete address & contact phone number.
– email inquiries to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Please remember — I am on the water or off somewhere quite a bit of the time, including winter. Allow some time for a response. Thanks.
aaah — for a walk down memory lane …Our shop on Granville Isand.
COMPLETE RUDDERS ARE NO LONGER AVAILABLE AND ARE NOT BEING MADE.
Limited rudder components (pulley wheels, rudder blocks with stainless steel pin) will be available for order.
Feathercraft has now permanently stopped making folding kayaks, rafts and accessories. Due to a number of factors, including poor economic conditions, changing lifestyles, flight baggage restrictions and increasing costs, we have found that making our premium kayaks is no longer financially viable. We will miss the incredible feedback and adventure stories that we have received over the years. I personally will miss these customers, our many suppliers, and also my dedicated colleagues who have helped make our beautiful boats. Thank you all for your tremendous support over these past 40 years.
Everything has a beginning……..and an end.
