The Stellar 16′ Sit-on-Top, entry level to intermediate paddlers
The Stellar 16′ Sit-on-Top (S16S) is a transitional sit-on-top, stable enough for entry level and intermediate paddlers to feel comfortable, but fast enough for fitness paddling and racing! The open cockpit, rounded seat and 3-point footboard is very comfortable and responsive, keeping you on track to where you want to go. Two watertight hatches allow for modest storage for day tripping and overnight adventures. In the ocean, the S16S is a blast, easily catching waves and carving on the waves. The S16S’s light weight makes it responsive to your power on the water and with its cockpit handles, it is a breeze to carry and car-top.
Weight: 35.3 lbs / 16 kg
Description: 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.
Description: 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, as well as a flush mounted Andersen Super mini-bailer.
Weight: 27.6 lbs / 12.5 kg
Description: 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.
Alpha – Woven:
