Venture Kayaks Islay 12 LV Kayak with Skeg



Show Description

Made for smaller, lighter paddlers, this low-volume version of the shortest vessel in the Islay fleet handles easily on and off the water. It offers all the features of a touring kayak, scaled down for daytrips and overnights on sheltered waters. Newbies will be reassured by its stability, and experts will love its excellent edging and carving.

  • Full volume bow lifts over waves for a drier ride.
  • Long waterline length and squared-off stern provide steady speed.
  • Roomy cockpit and adjustable seating ensure all-day comfort.
  • Notches on the foredeck hold your paddle while you grab a snack or take photos.
  • Deck rigging holds spare paddles and other essentials.
  • Deck flats for installing fishing rod holders.
  • Supple rubber hatch covers are exceptionally watertight.
  • Drop-down skeg lets you select easy turning or hard tracking, as conditions require.
