The Stellar 16' (S16) Touring Kayak was an instant classic, in launching the second generation(S16 G2), we built off the success of the initial design and its decade in the market.

We've added a bit of waterline beam for some additional stability and the bow was made more plumb to increase the waterline length for better efficiency and tracking.

The foredeck was redesigned to include a little more height to allow for paddlers with larger feet. We also made the cutaways deeper to allow for a tighter and more efficient stroke.

The cockpit rim was lowered along with the seat position which we moved to the bow allowing for easier back deck rolling.

Rounding out the updates, we added a 3rd hatch on the fore deck for your phone, VHF radio or snacks.

The S16 G2 is the ideal touring kayak for medium-sized paddlers with a paddler weight of 70 - 100 kg.

It has enough storage volume for multi-day tours. For a length of 4.95 meters it is already a very fast touring kayak, which is nevertheless compact and can be paddled agilely. The slightly concave bow and stern increase the tracking stability.

The S16 is equipped with stern, front and day hatch as well as stern rudder.

Layup Options available:

Excel: Very stiff and light, yet more affordable than the Alpha. Kevlar® adds impact strength to the laminate - Gelcoat finished heat cured epoxy Kevlar® and Fiberglass laminate with Nomex® Honeycomb Core. Great for racing, or those looking for a light boat, but not as impact resistant as the Multi-sport or Advantage constructions.

Advantage: (To order only) Great combination of weight, stiffness, durability and cost. Gelcoat finished heat cured infused epoxy Fiberglass and Soric® core laminate is very tough and resists against punctures. A great race boat on a tight budget. The Advantage hits the mark for price to weight ratio for most kayak paddlers.

MultiSport: Pre-Order Only - Single skin laminate hull made of Carbon & Kevlar® fabric, with clear gelcoat finish, and the deck is the standard Advantage construction. The hull is designed to be flexible and durable, but creates a stiff boat that can take some abuse in the class I and II rapids and shallows, but is also at home in the ocean or the flats. The Surf Ski Multi-Sport construction comes standard with an over-stern rudder and fittings for an under-stern rudder, as well as a flush mounted Andersen Super mini-bailer.

Advertised weight is for a white hull/deck. Colour stripes may add weight to the kayak.
