Stellar Kayaks & Surf Skis
Stellar Kayaks & Surf Skis are a perfect blend of speed and stability designed for you to achieve the best results possible. This was achieved through a global collaboration of paddlers and designers from around the world. Paddlers are delighted at how efficient our hulls are and how well they respond in beam chop. Our hull design becomes more effective in secondary stability as the conditions deteriorate.
At Stellar we are willing to pay a premium for the best, importing high quality materials from worldwide leaders in manufacturing, such as DuPont, Toray, Plexus and Lantor. We realize that what goes into the boat makes them stronger, lighter and more durable. We are the Industry leader in composite construction making lightweight and durable laminates. Our experience from building Olympic level rowing shells for 30 years has given us a technical edge entering the kayak market. The difference is easy to feel with many customers surprised at the stiffness and light weight of our kayaks and surf skis.
This laminate is a single skin fiberglass with a gelcoat exterior, making it very tough, forgiving and affordable. The single skin laminate is more flexible than the other laminates which allow it to absorb impacts without serious damage. This is a great entry level boat and can take some abuse from less wary paddlers.
This laminate is Soric cored fiberglass with a gelcoat exterior, making is stiffer and lighter than the Sport, but also at a good price point. This laminate has better performance than the Sport, but also similar toughness and ability to absorb some abuse. This is our most popular boat for touring and entry level surf skis for its combination of durability, stiffness, weight and price.
This laminate is Kevlar with Nomex Honeycomb core and a gelcoat exterior, making it very stiff and very light. This is a performance laminate designed for those who desire a stiff and fast boat and know how to handle a boat on and off the water. The Nomex core makes for a light and stiff boat, but the impact resistance is much less than that of the Advantage or Sport. If you hit a rock or log or even tie down the boat too tight on unsupported racks, this could result in damage.
This laminate is Carbon with Nomex Honeycomb core and a painted finish, making it extremely stiff and light weight. This is a performance laminate designed for those who desire the stiffest and fastest boat and know how to handle a boat on and off the water. The Nomex core makes for a light and stiff boat, but the impact resistance is much less than that of the Advantage or Sport. If you hit a rock or log or even tie down the boat too tight on unsupported racks, this could result in damage. Secondly, the painted finish is more prone to scratching than the gelcoat finish, so take care to clean the boat well and avoid running it aground when landing to keep the finish pristine.
This laminate is an innovative offering, with a single skin laminate hull made of Carbon & Kevlar, with an EPS Foam stringer, which is flexible and durable, but creates a stiff boat that can take some abuse in the rivers and shallows. Tested in New Zealand, this laminate is at home racing down rivers through the rapids or in the ocean. The Surf Ski Multi-Sport construction comes standard with an over-stern rudder and fittings for an under-stern rudder, as well as a flush mounted Andersen mini-bailer, while the Touring kayak version has the usual features. This laminate is ideal for those who paddle in shallow rivers, lakes or even rocky shorelines where the boat will encounter the bottom from time to time.
