The S16 is a light tourer - fast but not too long

Kayak for everyday and travel

The S16 G2 is one of the most popular touring kayaks from Stellar: For the length of 495 cm, it is already a very fast touring kayak that is still compact and can be paddled lively. The shape of the hull supports the directional stability enormously.

With its dimensions, it is the ideal kayak for medium-sized paddlers with a paddler weight of 60 to 100 kg. It has sufficient storage volume for multi-day tours.

The S16 is equipped with a stern, front and day hatch as well as a stern rudder. If ordered individually, a keel strip is also possible, which gives the kayak additional robustness.

Balanced kayak

The S16 can be paddled very quickly, but is also balanced and safe. It is also suitable for beginners who want to improve their skills.


Weighing only 17 kilos in the carbon-kevlar layup (multisport), the S16 is also comfortable to carry. We recommend using the handles only when the kayak is empty.

Practical details...

Day hatch and nets with direct access, trough behind the cockpit to assist with paddle floats, adjustable backrest...

Thoughtful seat

The specially designed seat pad reliably removes moisture from the paddler and ensures ventilation - included in all Stellar kayaks!

Long waterline

Typical for Stellar: The long waterline favored by the hull construction! Almost the entire length is on the water.

Marin Chirazi, Alin Vorniceanu

These points make the S16 special

Rear windows

The S16 G2 comes standard with Smart Track rudder.

Large cockpit hatch and comfortable seat

The cockpit hatch measuring 85 x 44 cm offers easy entry and exit.

baggage hatches

Oval luggage hatches at the front and rear and sufficient storage space make the S16 G2 the ideal tour, even for multi-day tours.


We configure most touring kayaks in the multisport layup, as this is more robust than the slightly cheaper Advantage layup. However, the S16 G2 can also be ordered in the Advantage layup.


The deck of the S16 G2 is tapered in front of the cockpit. This allows for tight paddle guidance.

Boat name

If you want, you can order your kayak from us with your own boat name. We then apply it according to customer requirements.
