When designing the Stellar 14' (S14) Touring Kayak, we wanted to have a boat that was efficient through the water, yet stable. Unlike any other boat of this length, the S14 has the speed of a much longer boat, but beginners can feel comfortable paddling it. Two water tight hatches allow for ample storage for day and overnight trips, while the retractable skeg in the stern helps with tracking. The S14 comes standard with fittings to upgrade to a rudder steered boat as well. Its short length and light weight make it ideal for those who want a high performance boat, but are short on storage space or frequently car-top their boat.
