Is $4500 worthwhile for paddling freedom? Thats more than what my father paid for his old yacht.
Anyway, let me introduce you to the Feathercraft Kahuna.
She's 4.5m long and 64cm at the beam.
Foldables have an advantage over hardshells because, well, they're portable! Will be kinda hard to transport a 4.5m long kayak, but a foldable can pack down into a 50litre backpack.
