8' 10"


Fiberglass: 26 lbs



Price: $1295

Lightweight, stable, and just plain fun. This boat is fun! The Q-Star was designed by Ann Dwyer of California. It’s a kayak that is suitable for non-kayakers. Stable, easy to paddle, and above all light. How light? Well, we haven’t had to build a Kevlar® model yet, but the fiberglass Q-Star weighs just 26 pounds. It’s 8' 11" short and 27" stable (wide). You may have thought you didn’t have a storage place for a kayak! The Q-Star changes all that. Stand it up in a corner, put it behind the chesterfield or put it under the bed. Its light weight makes it a breeze to cartop or put in your hatch back. You can even carry it in an elevator.

The Q-Star’s sharp entry lines help it track well and the low seat increases stability. It’s ideal for fishing, bird watching or just poking about. It’s a lot more than just a playboat. Several years ago, Ann stopped by our shop after paddling the Bowron Lake Circuit, 88 miles in seven days. Her companions were six other retired folks. Ann has paddled the Q-Star on the Colorado and many other whitewater rivers. She has also logged miles along the Pacific Coast in the Q-Star. This year, the optional foam seat is available. For a little more comfort or slightly wider duffs, this is your answer.
