Used Wilderness System Tsunami 175 and 165 Sea Kayaks For Sale -SOLD

wilderness system tsunami

SOLD – All boats are sold.


I have Tsunami 175s and Tsunami 165s for sale. These are used but in great shape. These are a great sea kayak and perfect for Lake Superior, the Great Lakes, oceans or inland lakes. They’re stable, handle rough water and work well for beginners and advancing intermediate paddlers. You could circumnavigate Isle Royale in this kayak or take off on a 20-day trip if you wanted. They’re also perfect for day trips and have excellent handling.

All have rudders and upgraded seats for additional comfort. The seat is a $60 upgrade from the stock boat that you’d buy at a retailer.

New they run $1685 plus the $60 seat upgrade.

For sale at $899.

This is going to be of interest mainly to readers in Wisconsin and Minnesota, because you’ll need to pick the boat(s) up in Grand Marais, MN. Depending on my schedule, I may be able to meet you somewhere on the shore between Grand Marais and Duluth.

  • A couple of questions for you…… Since I have the Tsunami 175 I am curious as to what the S stand for? Where did you get the seat upgrade from?

    • The “S” stands for plural. As in I have multiple 175s and 165s to sell. I bought the seat upgrade direct from Wilderness Systems as an outfitter.

      • Lol…. And to think I thought the S was for some exciting upgrade!

  • Hello Bryan
    I got your name and website from a friend who is a friend of Tony Schmits, someone from a Twin Cities paddling club that knows you.
    I am interested in a stable sea kayak that I can use on Lake Superior. I have a place near Two Harbors and would be interested on occasion in doing some early morning paddling. I bought a greenland style kayak last summer but found it much too “tippy” for my level of comfort. I am 73 years old and my balance is not what it used to be.
    I am interested, if still available, a 165 boat. I would appreciate hearing from you at your convenience.
    In addition to my email; address, I can be reaced at 612-819-4433.
    Thank you!
