Looks like Nelo is offering a sit on top version of the Viper 46. Should be a good fitness boat or fast flat water craft that could appeal to a lot of warm water paddlers. It may be a little twitchy for my skills, but I could see how a 48 or 50 could be exactly what I would like for quick after work paddles in the flat to choppy Florida Intercoastal water I'm on.  I hope this trend takes off...as an alternative to using a ski for the non-open water situations, and the 17' length is appealing as well.

Looks like fun boats, Elio was "first" ;-)

The Nelo is here, they call it a fitness boat, not ocean - seems reasonable:

Carbonology has an elite SOT K1 as well. I live on the Florida Gulf which doesn't have huge downwind conditions, but the ski is a good all around craft with the temps here. I always felt the ski (Genius CLK) was under utilized for most of the paddling I do. I use a Think EZE for the same type of 'fitness' paddling this boat was made for. Something with a faster hull, in the 520 length,  could be a lot of fun.

They do, however, include it in their range of ocean boats.

Out of interest, has anyone paddled one of these yet ? Looks like a good winter training boat.

Previous Boat Journey: Gaisford spec ski, then Fenn Bluefin, then Epic V8 Pro. Then ?
Recent Demo's: Epic V10 G3, Nelo 550L.

There must be a mistake somewhere: The Elio is called a beginner boat, but the width is given with 37 cm?! This would put this boat in the same class as the CS Feather, which clearly is "Elite"!  As an unsteady K 1 novice the Nelo appeals to me as an easier to remount solution!
