S16 G2 Advantage Touring

Description

The Stellar 16'(S16) Touring Kayak was an instant classic, in launching the second generation(S16 G2), they built off the success of the initial design and its decade in the market. Stellar added a bit of waterline beam for some additional stability and the bow was made more plumb to increase the waterline length for better efficiency and tracking. The foredeck was redesigned to include a little more height to allow for paddlers with larger feet. They also made the cutaways deeper to allow for a tighter and more efficient stroke. The cockpit rim was lowered along with the seat position which was moved to the bow allowing for easier back deck rolling. Rounding out the updates, Stellar added a 3rd hatch on the fore deck for your phone, VHF radio or snacks.
