Stellar S18′ Touring Kayak (S18) From $4,295
Similar to the S16, the Stellar 18′ (S18) Touring Kayak was designed for speed and stability for long distance tours. With additional length and reduced beam, this boat glides through the water. Moderate concavity along the keel of the bow and stern helps with tracking in rough conditions. For windy days and following seas, a drop-down rudder off the stern will help keep your course. Higher decks allow for a dryer paddle in rough conditions and a large stern and medium bow compartment provide ample storage for your longer tours.
