Venture Kayaks Islay 12 Kayak with Skeg



Show Description

All the features of a touring kayak, in a scaled down package. A shorter vessel, this boat easily slides on and off roof racks for a spontaneous day on small lakes or gentle rivers, yet still has enough space to bring cargo for a luxury overnight. Newbies will be reassured by its stability, and experts will appreciate its excellent edging and carving. A contoured seat with ample padding and a tall backrest makes your cruises even more luxurious.
