The Venture Islay is the next wave of small touring kayaks. Taking design cues from P&H's ground-breaking Delphin, the Islay sets a new standard for the category.
The Islay features a long waterline for speed and tracking and an asymmetric hull that is nimble on edge. Solid stability gives beginning paddlers plenty of confidence and a roomy cockpit makes for comfortable all-day seating.
- Semi flat mid hull with a slight V: Gives stability, maneuverability and great tracking.
- Full volume bow: Helps lift over waves and give you a drier ride.
- Volume in bow and stern : Carry all your gear with ease on calmer water.
- Rear weighting & squared off stern: Long water line allows you to keep speed up across the bay.
