Why limit yourself with roof racks and cumbersome storage when you can have all the performance benefits of a top-quality kayak stored in a backpack that travels with you? Regardless of skill level, the Chelan series is ready for all types of water.
AquaGlide's full featured flagship boat is designed for hull speed and tracking efficiency. The Chelan is the premium choice for all types of paddling. Featuring rugged Duratex tube construction, the Chelan is designed for years of worry-free paddling. With our rigid HardBottom drop stitch floor, this boat is stiff enough for any expedition.
Originally named the Chelan Two, the updated 13.5 ft. Aquaglide Chelan 140 HB inflatable kayak is perfect for two paddlers out for a day of fun, or one paddler needing extra room for gear. Designed for recreational touring and all-around use. Good speed, tracking, stability and comfort with storage area. Can also use the optional single and double decks for more enclosed seating, or to add an optional spray skirt. the Chelan HB flagship series is constructed from a commercial grade smooth-skin Duratex hull material which dries quickly.
New this year is the switch from push-in drain plugs to screw-on drain plugs.

The Chelan 140 HB is constructed with four molded carrying handles
(bow, stern and both sides) but – if not in a windy situation – can also be carried by hooking the side of the kayak over your shoulder.
Two splash guards – front and rear – extend partly over the seating well and help prevent water from splashing in.
Ten upper plastic d-rings
Used to attach the seats as well as gear, and five cloth d-rings each side of the outer hull along the rub guard – also for the optional decks or attaching more gear. The upper d-rings are spaced from 11 to 23 inches apart and begin 67 inches from the bow.
The cloth d-rings are located 60 and 82 inches from the bow.
There are three military valves
For the floor and side chambers, and one twistlock for the seat base.
The padded, inflatable Pro-Formance seat
Features adjustable side straps which quickly clip into position. The straps can be adjusted up to 15 inches. The seat bases are 16 inches wide by 16 inches deep and can be inflated up to 5 inches, dependent on your comfort level. Two mesh pockets and two side d-rings are found on the front of the seat base, as well as a velcro strip for attaching an optional cup holder.
The Seat Back
Equipped with 2 fishing rod holders, one d-ring on each side and a deep mesh storage pocket (measuring 5 x 8 x 9 inches) for gear. The backs are 12 inches tall in a 1-inch thick padded foam with “breathable” mesh, encircling 26-inches wide. A velcro tab locks the twist-lok into position so it doesn’t accidentally “get bumped” while paddling.
The floor is constructed from a 6 PSI high-pressure, drop-stitch material
Designed as “raised seating,” creating four 3.5 inch deep side-well cutouts that collect any water splashing inside; each side-well has a drain plug (not to be confused with self-bailing) which can be opened to let water out.
Two 80-inch velcro strips
Centered on the floor three inches apart, and are used to position the seats and foot braces.
The foot braces are padded
10 x 3 inches long – with extending strips 8 inches in length.
The kayak body features tubeless side chambers constructed from 1000 denier 850 GSM Duratex reinforced PVC with a smooth finish.
The hull is a rugged, puncture-resistant 500 denier 600G Duratex reinforced PVC with removable tracking fin and landing plate.
The tracking fin is hefty
Measuring 5.5 x 12 inches with locking pin.
The bow and stern feature a rugged “molded” snout.
