A longer kayak is a faster kayak, allowing you to cover larger distances; the Islay 14 is an adventure touring kayak with a length similar to that of a sea kayak, but in a format that offers a little more stability and manoeuvrability. Ideal for beginners and intermediates who want to try their hand at cosy weekend adventures and relaxed journeys of up to a week in length on canals, sheltered lakes, and gentle rivers.
Choose This Kayak For:
- Medium to long distance journeys.
- Exploring lakes and gentle rivers with ease and the confidence to take photos from the kayak.
- The best combination of hull efficiency, speed, and a manageable size.
