VENTURE KAYAKS - Islay 14 HV Sport - Adventure Touring
The Islay - a performance boat masquerading as a recreational kayak.
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.
Islay 14 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:
- 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 manageable size.
