See available touring kayaks


The Islay 14 Sport slides easily onto cars and into garages, yet holds everything you need for a weekend escape. If you’re new to paddling, you’ll appreciate its stability. If you’re more experienced, you’ll love how the excellent edging lets you carve gracefully across the water. This super-affordable inland/coastal cruiser has a well-padded, contoured seat with a tall backrest for even more luxury.

  • TriLite 3-layer roto-moulded plastic is light and durable
  • Stable hull gives confidence and security
  • Full volume bow lifts over waves for a drier ride
  • Long water line for speed and tracking
  • High backrest and padded seat provides great comfort
  • Adjustable thigh grips and backrest
  • Watertight hatches made of supple UV stable rubber for a great seal
  • Foam bulkheads are light and offer added buoyancy
  • Skeg helps the boat track in a straight line
  • Elastic lines across the deck stow gear such as split paddles
  • Pre-stretched lines round the deck to tie gear on and allow others to hold onto your kayak
