Adventure Touring

Islay 12

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 manoeuvrability, the Islay 12 is for you.

Islay 12 available in MZ3 and TriLite construction, TriLite increases hull stiffness and reduces weight, enhancing the performance of our leading hull designs for a more responsive kayak.

Choose This Kayak For:

  • The stability and manageability of a recreational kayak, but with greater hull efficiency.
  • A mixture of day trips and weekend adventures.
  • Easier manoeuvrability than a longer touring or sea kayak.
