The sit-on-top for expeditions and multi-day adventures

Stellar Egret Sit-on-Top

The Egret is an efficient touring sit-on-top with a very stable underbody. The hull is the same as that of the S18 Expedition G2 touring kayak.

This stable platform offers easily accessible storage space for adventures. If you're looking to upgrade from a sit-on-top kayak to a comfortable but fast sit-on-top style kayak, the Stellar Egret offers familiar features like deck rigging, compass mounts and oval storage hatches. The comfort of the bucket seat and easy entry and exit are big advantages. With the precise steering of the surf ski stem and kick-up rudder, you'll always get where you want to go.

Features of this surf ski at a glance:

The Egret Sit-on-Top has these advantages

The Stellar Egret has a boat concept that combines the advantages of a surf ski with those of a touring kayak: the open seating allows different seating positions and quick entry and exit. The luggage hatches make it possible to carry luggage for tours lasting several weeks.

Wet Sanded

This model is an example of the colour combination of matt grey ("wet sanded") and red. The underside is matt, but has a smooth feel.

Undership from the S18 Exp G2

The lower hull is exactly that of the fast S18 Expedition touring kayak, delivering a brisk to paddle but very stable SOT kayak.

Deck fencing

The lines provide additional capacity for carrying equipment.

Rear luggage hatch

The hatches make the large-volume lower hull accessible for cargo.

Front luggage hatch

The hatches make the large-volume lower hull accessible for cargo.

Stem board from surf ski

The seat shell and footrests from the surf ski allow flexible adjustment and a posture that enables optimal power transmission.
