CURRENT DESIGNS

Full-sized and fully functional, the Vision 150 has storage capacity for long weekend trips while delivering an excellent mix of efficiency, tracking and maneuverability. The perfect step up for kayakers looking to further their technique and skill development. Also available in polyethylene.

IMPEX KAYAKS


MYSTIC (D) www.impexkayak.com $2,695–$3,695


The Mystic was designed for smaller paddlers who still want big sea kayak performance. At 14 feet long and 21.5 inches wide, it is a perfectly downsized sea kayak. It finally allows smaller paddlers, especially women, the ability to have a boat that gives them the fit they demand but the ability to keep up with even the heartiest group of paddlers. By keeping the rocker flat and the beam narrow, Impex has developed a short, lightweight kayak with a very efficient hull.

SEDA KAYAK


ATAJO (E) www.sedakayak.com • $2,750–$3,350


Lightweight, quick, and nimble, the Atajo is a compact touring kayak capable of weekend trips or after work exercise. The cockpit is sized for smaller paddlers and may be snug for larger-framed kayakers. With a smooth hull curvature edge to edge, the Atajo responds quickly to lean-turns and braces. The Atajo’s hull delivers comfortable control while its narrow width punches easily through wind chop. A standard rudder will help on windy days.

S14 TOURING KAYAK (G) www.stellarkayaksusa.com • $1,530–$3,740


When designing the Stellar 14-foot (S14) Touring Kayak, Stellar wanted 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 watertight hatches allow for ample storage for day and overnight trips, while the retractable skeg in the stern helps with tracking.
