Best for Stability
Old Town Castine 140 14’

Crafted with performance and comfort in mind, the Old Town Castine 140 touring kayak is a good choice for both beginners and seasoned kayakers taking on weekend or light touring expeditions.

The Castine 140 features an ACS2 seat with a low-profile backrest, phone cradle, and quick-seal hatches with CrossLock closures. It comes equipped with carrying handles that help with transporting heavier loads. Deck bungees also make access to gear more convenient.

Using roto-molded polyethylene, the Castine 140 will be heavier than a thermo-molded or fiberglass boat. However, the advantage of a durable, plastic boat means it’s more robust and can be dragged up the beach fully-loaded without too much concern of damaging the hull.

Thanks to the wider cockpit, adjustable thigh braces, and footrests, this boat is able to fit paddlers of all shapes and sizes. It also has a wider beam providing excellent stability and confidence for paddlers to face more challenging conditions.

The Old Town Castine 140 is a robust touring kayak for beginner and intermediate paddlers searching for comfort and affordability.
