The “Luxury Ride of Kayaks"
The Riverstar is a top of the line inflatable kayak. There is not a better, more capable or more comfortable inflatable kayak on the global market. This kayak provides ample room for any size paddlers and has great performance characteristics. The Riverstar will call to you when you are not on the water enjoying everything this luxury kayak has to offer. A true addictive experience, you’ll never have a bad day on the water in a Riverstar!
Riverstar Features & Innovations
The Riverstar is nearly capsize proof and provides unparalleled comfort for paddlers and passengers alike.
Extra Wide: Take the dogs or kids and a friend for the adventure of a lifetime (again and again) without any worry of getting tossed into the sea.
Flexible Seating: Seat locations can be adjusted for proper weight distribution for two paddlers or centrally located for a solo paddler. The inflatable seats with optional high backrest provide couch-like comfort in a kayak!
Full Length Grommet Rail: This grommet rail provides easy access to seat positioning, but also ample locations to attach gear and equipment. The grommet rail allows for the fastening of a spray skirt to keep paddlers and gear dry in wet and cold conditions.
Not the right fit for you? Let’s find your perfect boat.
Riverstar Features & Innovations
The Longer, The Better.
The Riverstar’s long design allows for ample leg room for any size paddler without impeding on its storage capacity. The upward sloping bow glides over waves for a comfortable paddling experience in all conditions.
The unique V-shaped hull design stabilizes the Riverstar and provides it with excellent tracking.
Fully Inflated Deck
The inflated deck wraps fully around the boat, including each gunwale cap. This provides increased torsional stability over the Riverstar and even more seating options.
You can reverse one of the seats and have a face-to-face picnic on the water!
Lifting Handles for Added Convenience
Bow and stern handles are long enough to allow for comfortable carrying of your boat. Drag it from one end or have a friend help for longer portages.
Touring Level Comfort
The high quality inflatable seats allows for infinite adjustment to position and firmness. A high backrest and a flat seat bottom keeps your back feeling good and your center of gravity low.
Infinitely adjustable footrests provide a firm place to push your feet on, making the boat feel like an extension of your body. The optional rudder pedals mount onto these footrests for easy steerage!
Room for Everything
Plenty of storage space under the decks for luggage and gear. If you need more room, there are many net and bag options that can be mounted on top of the decks.
The included stern bracket allows you to mount an optional rudder or Torqeedo Ultra-Light outboard.
If you are paddling with two people, we strongly recommend a rudder to avoid any issues with winds, currents or paddlers that aren’t perfectly coordinated.

Let Technology Do the Paddling for You!
Kayaks are amazingly well designed boats. They are stable due to their low center of gravity and are very hydrodynamic allowing them to be propelled easily, even by small muscle groups such as shoulders and arms. It is time to take advantage of the kayak’s design and leave behind manual paddling! Electric motors are reliable, efficient and environmentally friendly. An electric motor will free your hands so you can dedicate them to a fishing rod for easier landing of the big catch, a pair of binoculars for easier bird watching, or any other activity that would require two hands. Give in to the dark side and embrace the way of electric propulsion!
Built in GPS
Did you know that Torqeedo motors have built in GPS and a screen that displays real time range, runtime and speed? It also allows you to easily troubleshoot with error code readouts. Don’t guess with other brand’s display free designs. Torqeedo makes it easy to own and use an electric outboard!

This electric motor is light in weight and provides ample propulsion to get you to your destination (or back) with ease! The Grabner motor mount (add to your cart from the above accessory list) provides a perfect and custom fit of this little motor so you can mount and be on the water in mere minutes.
