Touring - made Faster

FASTER. MORE STABLE. A lean, mean, touring machine, the Bourbon 17 is the first of a new series of touring kayaks with exceptional glide, consuming mile after mile with little effort.

  • Designed for speed and stability
  • Spray cover
  • Flush Keel Rudder
  • Ergonomic Seat
  • AIR-Backrest™
  • 3 waterproof compartments
  • Tough & Light 3-Layer HDPE

THE INCREASE OF BOTH SPEED AND STABILITY makes the Bourbon 17 truly unique. A very fast touring kayak with the aggressive appearance of an adventure racing craft – and the performance to match. Using highly advanced hydrodynamic design technology, and made in 3-layer ultra tough HDPE, the Bourbon 17 has a striking stability, manoeuvrability and speed.

Great primary and secondary stability offers beginners and expedition paddlers alike a fast ride, even in the most challenging conditions. Your heaviest gear will barely slow it down – this is an ideal expedition kayak. The Bourbon17 ́s manoeuvrability is unparalleled among touring kayaks with super responsive steering through it’s unique keel rudder. The rudder is handy when winds and currents are working against you. The Bourbon 17 comes fully equipped featuring a large aft oval hatch, an easily accessible 20cm day hatch and a huge storage compartment at the front. It also features the super-comfy AIR GTX backrest and adjustable Rudder pedals as well a bottle holder, padded thigh braces and an ergonomically designed seat equipped with a soft, comfortable seat pad.

The cockpit is long and wide for achieving powerful strokes through optimal legroom as well as increased comfort during entry and exit. Also unique to the Bourbon 17 is the spray cover on the bow, accentuating its ultra sleek look while protecting your optional compass or GPS, which can be mounted in front of the cockpit.

Phil Kayaker
Sporty spirit and phenomenal stability

A very interesting and controversial boat. First impressions are very contradictory. The kayak steers well in motion. When stopped, behaves like a slalom boat, turns around. But over time you get used to it and it ceases to be a problem. The excellent speed of the kayak is provided by the hydrodynamics of the hull and a very convenient and well-thought-out arrangement of the upper part of the deck. The narrowed body allows you to paddle like in a racing boat. The spirit of sport often arises during paddling. I have the Nelo Vanquish II, Nelo Quattro L in the past and Bourbone has something of a sport boat. At the same time, the kayak is incredibly stable. Having a Tempest 170 kayak, which is similar in size to the Bourbone, I find it less stable. A recent test on Ladoga in waves and headwinds showed good resistance of the kayak to roll, turn and sinking between waves. The only thing I didn’t like was how the kayak behaves with the passing side waves. It becomes very difficult to keep the course. Now I ride Bourbone all the time and I like it more and more. I recommend the boat for experienced kayakers. The boat is really interesting.
