The Stellar 16'(S16) Touring Kayak was an instant classic, in launching the second generation(S16 G2), we built off the success of the initial design and its decade in the market.

We've 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. We 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 we moved to the bow allowing for easier back deck rolling. Rounding out the updates, we added a 3rd hatch on the fore deck for your phone, VHF radio or snacks.

Construction Options


Alpha - Woven

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. 

USES: Racing, fitness or easy to handle on land. Requires care in transport and protect against hitting rocks



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.

USES: Racing, fitness or easy to handle on land. Requires care in transport and protect against hitting rocks.



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.

USES: Racing fitness or touring. Flexible hull is ideal for shallow water paddling or small rivers.



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. 

USES: Racing, fitness or touring. Stiff yet flexible hull is very tough and but take care in shallow rivers and lakes.

The Stellar Difference

The difference is in the details. At Stellar, we realise that all materials are not made the same and premium materials help make a superior boat. From Dupont Kevlar, Toray Carbon, Lantor Core and 3M finishing materials, we realize that these materials may cost more, but provide you with a superior boat in mechanical strength, aesthetic finish, optimal weight and consistent performance. We process those superior materials, by using epoxy resin, heat curing, vacuum and infusion to create the some of the best boats on the market.
