Klepper Aerius I 450 Expedition single seater - Ref 066CQ
Skin only - no frame. The frame in these photos is from another kayak - borrowed to show the quality of the skin. Skin is in a very good condition given its age.

The hull has since been given a makeover with the addition of wide keel strips extending the life of this skin plus gaining extra protection

Klepper Aerius I 450 Expedition single seater - Ref 062CT
Hardly used - an very excellent condition kayak! Klepper no longer makes this shorter single seater model - the current single seater in production is the longer Aerius I 490.

This kayak comes included with 2 packing bags, rubber moulded alu framed 'Comfort' bottom seat and backrest, rudder, and one piece spraydeck.

The entire frame is immaculate with hardly any marks on the varnish. The hull has no signs of damage.

Price - £2100.00




Klepper Aerius II 520 NATO Mark 13 (Ex-SBS) double seater - Ref 061SB
Former UK Special Forces SBS / SAS kayak with a new frame. The canvas decks is partially "bleached" but the hull shows no signs of much usage. There is one repair patch on the hull. The bleaching / colour fade would be from practicing underwater concealment and / or rolling exercises or even only from long distance paddles in rough conditions (skin soaked through).

This kayak comes with rubber moulded bottom seats and backrests

The entire frame is new / almost new..

Klepper T66 Slalom- Ref 053ME
This is a rare very good condition slalom kayak which has hardly been used, given the lack of wear and tear for its age. This particular model was only produced around 1958-59.

Included is the rare waist skirt, also in excellent condition plus the two pack bags.

The hull is a little stiff - it should soften a little with warmth.

The owner also purchased a Klepper wooden shafted paddle which is also in a very immaculate condition - this paddle is separate to the price of the kayak at £200.

Price - £TBA
(NB - photo below is not of the kayak for sale - shown for illustration, condition is very similiar. Photo credit - Patcool)



Klepper Aerius II 545 Classic double seater- Ref 051AR
Purchased as new at the Klepper Rosenhiem factory in 2015 and brought back to the UK the same year, this Classic with the light grey CSM hull has hardly been used since, all of which was on inland waters around the London area (Thames & Wye).

This kayak comes with Ergonomic (inflatable) backrests attached to the rubber moulded bottom seats, and footrests.

This kayak is in an immaculate condition, in the frame, the skin and the three packing bags.

The owners also purchased Klepper wooden shafted 'Donau' paddles which are also in a very immaculate condition - these paddles is separate to the price of the kayak at £240 for the pair.

Klepper Aerius II Classic (H. S. Walther GmbH) 520 double seater- Ref 040MS
Complete with frame, skin, spray deck, waist skirts, and steering system. Produced during the early 1980's when Klepper was being produced under license by H. S. Walther GmbH. Identified by the hexagonal Klepper logo.

This particular frame has the long plywood covered floorboard version, intended for sailing purposes, unlike the more common ladder like floorboards (panels with gaps).

The frame is in a very immaculate condition. The pole rubber seats is of the newer black version, all in very good condition and will not need to be replaced for a long time..

The hull of the kayak skin shows no abrasive marks. There are 4 x 6cm wide keel strips which appears to have been added at some point after the original kayak purchase in the Netherlands - these keel strips are peeling on the edges and needs re-gluing (we will fix this). The bow and stern end caps have "perished" (bubbled from heat?) but appears to not to need replacing at the present time.

The spray deck is of the clip on type, with all clips intact. Some sealing tape has come off, just needs re-gluing. The waist skirts are in excellent condition, showing no signs of usage.

Includes full steering system - rudder and pedals. The steering cables is plastic coated in fair condition


This kayak has been well looked after, giving the appearance that it has hardly been used.

Two original packing bags - long frame bag and the skin 'backpack' bag are both in excellent condition. The owner used a separate nylon bag as the third bag to hold the small frame parts, and the steering system .

Klepper Aerius II Classic (H. S. Walther GmbH) 520 double seater- Ref 040MS
 


Klepper Aerius II Classic 520 double seater - Ref 033SM - SOLD
Complete with frame, skin, and steering system. A mix of old and new - previous owner replaced the original wooden back rests with newer version rubber backrests, newer rudder pedals and a newer rear wider keel board frame. The kayak skin is also a replacement skin being newer than the original frame - this replacement skin was purchased from Klepper many years ago and appears to be custom made on request as it has a rare open style paddle blade pockets and canvas strap paddle shaft holders on the rear deck only - as if the owner wanted to customise his boat for solo sailing. The seat bottoms have also been "modified" with home made canvas covered cushions (stiff HD foam inner). This kayak came with sail rigs - to be sold separately.

Includes full steering system - rudder and pedals. As expected with age, we will replace the steering cables with new wire or para cord.


The kayak has been carefully stored fully assembled and covered in a dry boat club boat shed, next to a lake. Last usage was possibly about 10 years ago

Klepper Aerius II Classic 520 double seater - Ref 033SM


Klepper Aerius II Classic 520 double seater - Ref 020CL
Complete with frame and skin. Includes spray deck and steering system. Overall, this kayak is in very good condition and comes with well made "Four Seasons" kayak bags that were replaced the original bags a few years ago. As often happens with certain manufactured pole rubber seats with age, some have perished and so all seats will be replaced with new ones. The End Post had snapped in half and was loosely "repaired" by the previous owner with steel plates - this frame part, we will replace with a good condition used spare. The previous owner had made some padding and covers for the back rests and had glued some High Density CC foam onto the wooden backrest. This padding is difficult to remove, so this will be left as is, as home made new or used covers is the best and easiest solution. One of the home made back rest covers has a tear - unusable. The previous owner also made a repair to the stern central keel board paneling with an extra pieces of plywood on both sides - this appears to be be good.

Spray deck is of the single piece type, with integrated waist skirts. The spray deck is attached to the cockpit coaming with clips.

Includes full steering system - rudder and pedals. As expected with age, we will replace the steering cables with new wire.

Klepper Aerius II Classic 520 double seater- Ref 006SW


Klepper TS2 double seater- Ref 049SB
Complete with original frame but with a new specially made lightweight (TPU) skin. Reproduced especially for the Devizes to Westminster International Canoe race (Folding Boat Class) as this kayak model has one of the fastest shaped hull for marathons, being the narrowerest and longest Klepper ever made (5.5 x 0.78m). This model has no sponsons hence the narrow beam - bow and stern bouyancy bags is recommended.

Seats are the orginal wooden seats - for racing purposes you may want to make your own high seats or we make for you.

Spray deck / waist skirts not included - spraydecks for the common Klepper Aerius II 520 fits this boat. Steering system is also not included - Old version AEII steering kit also fits this boat.

Dinghy / Tender, Row boat, Motor boat



Klepper Master #4- Ref 044KP
Frame only. With 2 red backrest cushions. Sold as a plain dinghy with no extras (No row oars, sail rig etc)

Previous owner attempted to refurbish the frame by sanding the frame and re-varnishing to remove the mould marks, starting with all of the cross ribs. The re-varnishing was done poorly. At best, ideally this 'new' varnish needs to be sanded and finished off with a final coat. It appears that the owner aborted the refurbishing project after doing the cross ribs as no other frame parts were touched.

Other issues - All pole stringer rubbers needs replacing (hard and brittle) - this we can do at extra cost, or supply the spare parts at cost (own DIY)

New replacement skin can be supplied with this frame. More detailed photos available on request

Price - TBA
Klepper Master #4- Ref 044KP


Klepper Master #5- Ref 046KP
Frame only. Sold as a plain dinghy with no extras (No row oars, sail rig etc)

Very good condition frame, well looked after. All pole rubber seats needs replacing - this we can do at extra cost, or supply the spare parts at cost. The dark wooden washboards ideally needs sanding and re-varnishing to remove scratch marks.

New replacement skin can be supplied with this frame. More detailed photos available on request
