Gear to Gawk At – Stellar Kayaks Intrepid

Gear to Gawk At

Stellar Kayaks Intrepid – Advantage Construction just 44lbs.!

The look to a British sea kayak may be recognize able but the construction is all Stellar and at a price of $3295 it comes in far more economically than its Brit counterpart.

I find that it suits a heavier paddler (190-230lbs) better than lighter. At 17’11” it’s a Fast ride capable and fun in varied conditions.

Mfg. Description:

The Stellar Intrepid 18′ (SI18) Sea Kayak, a very capable and more traditional hull design. Hard chines, a defined keel and a retractable skeg provide excellent handling in the Rock-Gardens or longer adventures. With 3 sealed storage compartments, a small day hatch in front of the cockpit and deck rigging, the SI18 provides plenty of storage options and accessibility. A molded seat pad and thigh brace provide comfort and stability when it gets rough.
