The DIRECTOR is the biggest boat in the ZET kayak range! With a length of almost 9ft and a volume of 95 gallons, this boat is perfect for multi-day expeditions, extreme races, and for all of those bigger paddlers out there. Despite its length the boat is extremely maneuverable and holds a line with ease, therefore excelling on difficult whitewater. Thanks to Zet's advanced manufacturing technologies and high-performance design, the Director is the ultimate kayak for any big paddler on a whitewater mission!
The outfitting is simple, adjustable, robust, and comfortable. As a result, the paddler is protected from big impacts and the boat is extremely light considering its large size.
Through the use of “Zelezny Technology,” ZET has made the Director both stronger and lighter than other kayaks. Other advantages of ZET Kayaks include:

  •  2-year warranty
  •  Minimum number of bolts and holes in the kayak
  • Unique foam holder
  • Light and functional seat made from a 'hybrid material'
  • Stable displacement hull
  • Original and progressive design 
  • Design input from some of the world's best paddlers

Shipping Options

We have multiple distribution centers set up in the USA in Boise ID, Asheville NC, and Syracuse NY. Boats can be picked up from our distribution centers free of charge.  In Asheville it can take up to 48 hours for pickup arrangements to be scheduled.  We do our best to get you your boat as quickly as possible, but some flexibility is required.  Boats can also be picked up at Clackamas River Outfitters in Estacada OR ($100 freight fee applies).

If you are unable to pick up your boat, freight shipping from the YRC terminal to the YRC terminal is available. Freight shipping takes 2-7 days, and your boat must be picked up at the YRC terminal nearest you. The costs of this shipping is $200, but if shipping multiple boats discounts are available.

Our favorite shipping method is roof rack shipping! Roof rack shipping is when your boat gets loaded up on another paddler's roof rack headed to your area from one of the distribution centers. Transportation on the roof rack is free, but we ask that you "tip" your driver $50 to help cover their gas money.
And if your ever headed home from the Payette River and want to make some extra gas money, let us know! We are always looking for roof rack space! Shoot us a message and we can see if we have any boats heading that direction.
