The award-winning Perception Hi Life 11.0 is the most versatile boat ever built, offering a sit-on-top design that can be paddled like a kayak or a stand-up paddle board. Its maximum stability and unique features create an experience unlike anything else — perfect for sharing the water with kids and pets. Unique cushioning across the entire top surface keeps feet happy all day. The low-profile rear swim deck with handles makes it easy to get back on board after swimming, while the large open front area is the perfect perch for small children or a dog.
The elevated seat with a padded adjustable fold-down backrest and a wide and thick padded seat cushion provides a comfortable position for paddling or simply relaxing on the water.
The convenient under-seat cooler recess with a drain keeps food, drinks, or accessories easily accessible and frees up your deck area from extra cargo.
The front and rear swim decks of the boat have low sides and hand grabs, making it easy and safe to get in and out of the water.
Built-in gear track
You are fully ready to accessorize thanks to the built-in gear tracks, which are great for mounting a phone, camera, speakers, fishing gear, and more. The tracks will accept most track-compatible mounts and accessories from manufacturers such as RAM®, Scotty®, and YakAttack®.
Full deck traction pad
Deck cushioning throughout provides increased grip and traction, which can help you maintain your balance and control on your Hi Life and add extra comfort to your footing.
Colors may vary slightly from those shown as each kayak that we produce is unique. Variations in color are not covered by warranty.
Whether sitting or standing, your comfort is the Hi Life’s primary focus. The extra-padded, elevated seat with a fold-down backrest offers the premium ergonomic support you’d expect from a performance kayak. Thick cushioning across almost the entire top surface provides the soft, surefooted grip of a premium paddle board.
The Hi Life is designed to offer excellent stability as both a kayak and a SUP, without compromising on speed, maneuverability, or weight savings. Whether sitting or standing, it provides exceptional support and is perfect for beginner to intermediate paddlers. It tracks smoothly and straight, making it easy to steer and maneuver, and is suitable for accommodating kids or pets.
Designed with a leak-proof one-piece construction, each model also has a permanent U.S. Coast Guard-compliant hull identification number.
Like all Perception kayaks, the Hi Life is designed for maximum durability. This results from its high-density polyethylene and one-piece roto-molded construction, which provides exceptional UV, impact, and abrasion resistance. Ocean and saltwater-optimized hardware and finishes allow you to take your Hi Life anywhere you please for years to come.
