Forget about oversized boats or struggling to carry your kayak; the compact Venus 11TM sit-on-top kayak by Ocean Kayak is designed specifically for women to feel at home on the water.
A trim, easy-to-manage sit-on-top kayak designed exclusively for women with medium to large builds. Narrow width and contoured seat platform offer better paddle clearance for a more powerful stroke and increased speed. Compact shape is responsive and fun to paddle. Open cockpit design makes it easy to get on and off, and the self-bailing scupper holes keep water from pooling in your boat. Fully adjustable Comfort Hybrid seat back is securely attached to the kayak so it won't slide around as you paddle. Six-inch storage hatch is located within easy reach. Tough, maintenance-free polyethylene will last through countless summers on the water. At 44 lb., this boat is much easier to load on your car and move to and from the water than heavier models. Bow and stern carrying handles for easy transport. Molded-in cup holder and deck area mount for an MP3 player included. USA. Dimensions 10'8"L x 28.5"W. Weight 44 lb. Capacity 220 lb.
Measuring just under 11 feet long and weighing in at 40 pounds, the Ocean Kayak Venus 11 Sit-On-Top Kayak was designed especially for paddling ladies. Ocean Kayak took design feedback from female paddlers and placed the seat well lower in the boat in order to accommodate a woman's center of gravity, and gave the Venus a wide Comfort Hybrid seat that's especially comfortable and efficient for women. The Venus is resultingly more stable, allowing tip-free fun whether you're paddling glassy lakes and ponds, cruising mellow rivers, or even exploring calm seas. For long days, pack the rear tank well and Cam Lock day hatch full of gear, throw a cold beverage in the in-mold cupholder, and paddle to your heart's content. If you need a break, just stash your paddle in the side paddle keepers and float for a while--make sure you've got plenty of sunscreen on your nose, though, because you wouldn't be the first to fall asleep out there.
Ocean Kayak Venus 11 Sit-On-Top Kayak - Designed by women (and one guy in touch with his feminine side), the Venus 11 kayak is perfectly sized for smaller paddlers. Super lightweight for easy car-topping, the Venus 11 is built for big fun. It's stable, with a slightly widened seat position to help the boat respond to a woman's center of gravity.

A paddle keeper, molded-in cup holder, and MP3 mounting area keep handy essentials where you want them. Side-mounted carry handles make carrying your boat easier, and the deck handle really helps with car top loading and unloading. Now you don't need to be one of the boys to have a boat that fits!
