 The Solander (formerly Solander Plus), a smaller version of the Seafarer, is a perennial favourite as it is nimble, sporty, and fun, and will also accommodate gear for longer trips. It has been in production since 1981 and has been revised and updated. The latest update incorporates the flush hatches and recessed plastic deck fittings. The rescue straps have moved to just behind the cockpit to make them easier to use. The rudder deployment lines have been routed inside the deck to reduce clutter on the rear deck. We have sold more of this model than any other and it's still Steve's favourite, due to its unique combination of size, agility, weight, and character. One of the first soft chined touring kayaks available, it is still the best kayak of its size--a classic in its own time. Experienced paddlers find that the Solander feels like an extension of their own body (the ultimate compliment!)
