Stellar 18' Surf Ski (S18S EXP)

 -
The S18S EXP is our original S18S G2 renamed to place it in our offering as an "Expedition Ski." The new redesigned Stellar S18S hull has increased its speed by increasing the size of the cut-aways and narrowing the bow sections. The rocker profile has been tweaked along with the trim to optimize the ski for efficient paddling and catching waves. All done without losing any stability and staying within USCA fast sea kayaks regulations. The DeBrito bailer makes for dry starts, paddles and rapid water removal, carbon handles at each end and a large oval hatch in the stern. Under-stern/over-stern fittings, side handles, water bottle holder, leash attachment and deck bungees still come standard. Making this a boat you need to put in your fleet.

Construction Options

Alpha - Woven

Weight: 27.6 lbs / 12.5 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.

Excel

Weight: 28.7 lbs / 13 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.

Multi-Sport

Weight: 35.3 lbs / 16 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 and fittings for an under-stern rudder, as well as a flush mounted Andersen Super mini-bailer.

Advantage

Weight: 35.9 lbs / 16.3 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.
