he Islay 12 is an adventure touring kayak in an easily manageable size; if you're progressing from a shorter, recreational kayak and want something with a little more speed and storage capacity for extended adventures, or if you're looking for a boat with the features of a longer touring kayak, but a little more maneuverability, the Islay 12 is for you. The Islay features a long waterline for speed and tracking and an asymmetric hull that is nimble on edge. Solid stability gives beginning paddlers plenty of confidence and a roomy cockpit makes for comfortable all-day seating.
Choose This Kayak For:
- The stability and manageability of a recreational kayak, but with greater hull efficiency
