Solstice GT 17'7" Kayak - Custom

$3,995.00

A work of art, made for life. We believe a kayak should be as unique as its paddler. Choose between numerous colors for your hull, deck, seam, coaming, secondary deck colors (stripes, chevrons, etc.) and more. You can even get customized colors for cordage and logos. We're still getting an amazing real-time custom builder made for our website, so for now you should contact us to get a personalized mockup of your dream kayak. Send us your color ideas and we'll make it a reality.

The Solstice family of kayaks has long been the pride of the Current Designs Performance Touring Kayak fleet. The Solstice GT is the flag ship of our touring kayak fleet and the most popular composite kayak ever made. This updated classic delivers a predictable feel while slicing through the water. Like all Solstice's, the GT has outstanding acceleration, glide, and tracking and can cover some serious distance in a hurry. The ample volume storage hatches have enough room for excursions on the biggest waters of the world.

Maximum Load: 475 lbs.
Fiberglass - 54 lbs.
Aramid - 49 lbs.

General Information:
Fish Form: Widest ahead of the cockpit, Fish form kayaks have a more blunt entry but will have a more slender exit through the water. The bows typically have more flare and are usually more buoyant than others. This enables our shorter boats to be excellent surf zone kayaks. Longer kayaks benefit from this feature in large seas.
Soft Chine: A smooth transition from the bottom of the hull to the sides. Soft chines give smooth edging at unlimited angles. The majority of kayaks that we build have a soft chine.

Shallow Arch: These have good initial stability and are highly maneuverable.

Hull Shape
Touring Cockpit: Touring cockpits are somewhat small to help resist imploding of the spray skirt if hit by a large wave in rough water. They include built-in thigh braces on the cockpit rim to maximize control when edging and rolling. They range from 29” to 35” long, depending on the model.
