In this paper, we manufactured portable inflatable kayak using ultra high pressure drop stitch. by improving inflatable kayaks’ performance with a design using the extra-high-voltage special space paper, they were manufactured to go near to performance of hard shell kayaks. The kayaks were manufactured having all merits of the performance of hard shell kayaks and functionality and portability of the inflatable kayaks, and through performance evaluation of test products, the performance was compared with previous hard shell kayaks. About 6 knot of target speed in the verification result of resistance performance, the developed kayak was more excellent than the HOBIE-KONA kayak by 12.33%. In case of same displacement in a result of inclination test, the centroid of the developed kayak was less distributed by 22.7% than the HOBIE-KONA kayak, based on the bottoms of the ships. This makes the difference for righting arm (GZ) lessened to some degree because the developed kayak is lower than the HOBIE-KONA kayak in the centroid. In the dynamic stability of ship bodies, the HOBIE-KONA kayak showed a little excellent performance. However, in rudder force and resistance factor, the developed kayak was more outstanding than the HOBIE-KONA kayak.
