Show Description

A compact touring kayak in a low volume version for smaller, lighter paddlers. The Islay easily slides onto roof racks and into garages, yet still has enough space to hold everything you need for a weekend escape. If you’re new to paddling, you’ll be reassured by this boat’s stability. If you’re more experienced, you’ll appreciate its excellent edging and carving. This super-affordable inland/coastal cruiser has a contoured seat with a floating backrest for even more luxury.

  • Full volume bow lifts over waves for a drier ride.
  • Long waterline length and squared-off stern provide steady speed.
  • Roomy cockpit for comfort and thigh grips for control.
  • Notches on the foredeck hold your paddle as 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.
