Extra Wide: Take the dogs or kids and a friend, or two, 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 three 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.

Riverstar XXL Features & Innovations

Long Design Image

The Longer, The Better.

The Riverstar XXL’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 XXL and provides it with excellent tracking.

Inflated Deck Image

Fully Inflated Deck

The inflated deck wraps fully around the boat, including each gunwale cap. This provides increased torsional stability over the Riverstar XXL and even more seating options.

You can reverse one of the seats and have a face-to-face picnic on the water!

Lifting Handles Image

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 Image

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 Image

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.

Additional Equipment Image

Additional Equipment

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!

callout image

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!
