The light sea kayak under 20 kg

Stellar SI18 Gull

The SI18 and the SILV sea kayak from the Stellar family offer the speed you are used to from Stellar in combination with stability and safety, which the sea kayaks prove under rough conditions.

We configure the SI18 and the SILV in Stellar multisport layup by default. This means the hull is made of carbon/kevlar, which is a sandwich of fiberglass and a honeycomb core. The result is a sea kayak with a total weight of 19.5 kg.

The SI18 and SILV are available with the option of adding a Smart Track stern rudder and keel strips.

SI18 or SILV: Choosing the right model

The SILV (LV = "Low Volume") is ideal for light to medium-heavy paddlers with a weight of 55 - 80 kg. The SI18 is for medium to heavy paddlers with a paddler weight of 75 - 120 kg. Anyone who is in the transitional range in terms of body weight should decide according to the area of ​​application and potential payload. For example, if you decide to use the SI18 as a person weighing 70 kg and often use it without a load, you may quickly reach your limits under more difficult conditions. Because then the kayak offers more surface for wind and waves to attack, which requires more strength to control it.

Who is the SI18 the right sea kayak for?

The light and comfortable sea kayak

Many of our customers who choose the Stellar sea kayak appreciate the sensationally light weight of less than 20 kg and the very comfortable entry into the cockpit. The kayak can be steered reliably and offers space for additional loads for trips lasting several days. It's ideal for big-water touring in moderate conditions.

Integrated seating position

The cockpit lets air: ideal for people who prefer a kayak that is not quite as tight. Accessible from the seat: skeg, two day hatches (one aft day hatch on the SILV) and luggage nets.

Smooth-running & track-stable

Both models use a long waterline and enable a higher cruising speed to be reached and sustained.


The Stellar sea kayaks are equipped with skegs as standard and can therefore be steered very well. A rudder can be added as an option. We also recommend upgrading with keel strips.
