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.
Forget about oversized boats or struggling to carry your kayak; the compact Venus 11(TM) sit-on-top kayak by Ocean Kayak is designed specifically for women to feel at home on the water. The Ocean Kayak Venus 11 works great for surfing, camping, nature watching, fishing, day paddling and photography on flat water, moderate ocean swells and slow rivers. Updated linear polyethylene compound offers dependable strength and durability that stays lightweight and efficient. Rounded-V hull tracks well and turns easily; self-bailing scupper holes minimize water in boat. Seat well maximizes an otherwise narrow beam to accommodate fuller hips and shorter arms; designed by women for women. Because a woman's low center of gravity does not require a deep seat for stability, seat well sits higher out of the water for a drier ride. Comfort seat features extra padding on the bottom and seat back, providing optimal lumbar support. Molded-in tankwell with adjustable gear straps, deck rigging and multiple accessory eyelets provide convenient options to stow and secure accessories. Carry handles are specifically designed to make putting the Venus 11 on top of your vehicle quick and easy. Includes bow and stern toggle handles, a paddle keeper, a threaded drain plug and molded-in graphics; beverage holder keeps liquid refreshment close-at-hand. For a drier ride, Scupper Stoppers are available as accessories (sold separately); the Venus 11 requires 5 total scupper stoppers: 4 medium and 1 large. .
