This is a brand new first quality Vision 135 with the upgradded smart track rudder. This kayak was made in 2015 but has the new revolutionary seating system and everything a 2017 kayak has. This is a great deal on a very nice upgraded kayak. Hayward Outfitters is the Factory Outlet Store for Wenonah Canoe. We sell their factory second quality canoes, factory demo's and previous year's overstock. Other than Factory Demo's, these are brand-new canoes; not used, unless stated otherwise. A factory second quality canoe is also called a Blem as it has some type of cosmetic blemish to it. The Blemish is not structural in any way. A factory second quality canoes come with a full factory warranty, less the blem. Every Blem canoe is different. The factory does not tell us what the Blem is. A "NOS" canoe is a brand-new first quality canoe built in a previous year and also comes with a full factory warranty. In the canoe/kayak world, the new year starts on August 1st. These canoes are a great buy if you can put up with a slight imperfection. If you are looking for a perfect, current year, brand-new, first quality canoe, contact a Wenonah Canoe dealer near you.
