Stellar 18' Touring Kayak (S18 G2)

The Stellar 18’ G2 (S18 G2) is the latest iteration of one of the originals. Known for its great glide, stability and speed, keeping those highlights we tweaked the hull for additional efficiency, stability and capacity. The S18 G2 shares the same hull and deck as the S18 EXP G2, but one less hatch and bulkhead. The S18 is as at home on flat water eating up the miles as it is in big water providing you confidence to get where you want to. The S18 EXP G2 fits a wide range of paddler builds and has ample cockpit volume for large shoes to fit in.

Construction Options & Pricing

Alpha: $6,095 | Excel: $4,495 | Multi-Sport: $4,495 | Advantage: $3,795

Alpha - Woven

Weight: 34.2 lbs / 15.5 kg
Description: Extremely stiff and light - The ultimate paddling machine that is also easy to move off of the water. Clear finished, heat cured epoxy woven Toray 3k Carbon Fiber laminate with Nomex® Honeycomb Core.


Weight: 34.4 lbs / 15.6 kg
Description: Very stiff and light, yet more affordable than the Alpha. Kevlar® adds impact strength to the laminate - Gelcoat finished heat cured epoxy Kevlar® and Fiberglass laminate with Nomex® Honeycomb Core. Great for racing, or those looking for a light boat, but not as impact resistant as the Multi-sport or Advantage constructions.


Weight: 38.8 lbs / 17.6 kg
Description: Single skin laminate hull made of Carbon & Kevlar® fabric, with clear gelcoat finish, and the deck is the standard Advantage construction. The hull is designed to be flexible and durable, but creates a stiff boat that can take some abuse in the class I and II rapids and shallows, but is also at home in the ocean or the flats. The Surf Ski Multi-Sport construction comes standard with an over-stern rudder.


Weight: 40.8 lbs / 18.5 kg
Description: Great combination of weight, stiffness, durability and cost. Gelcoat finished heat cured infused epoxy Fiberglass and Soric® core laminate is very tough and resists against punctures. A great race boat on a tight budget. The Advantage hits the mark for price to weight ratio for most kayak paddlers.
