Top Touring Boat

Paddle the nearly 18-foot-long Infinity as a day boat and it's fun if a bit cumbersome. Load it and head out for a week or more and it really shines. Serious paddlers looking for a comfy boat will love the Infinity's large cockpit and raised foredeck, which make it easy to move your legs around on long days. But there's nothing bargelike about the fiberglass-hulled Infinity. Though beginners found it tippy, everyone else raved about its maneuverability and the way the swept-up British-style hull design handles in higher seas. The foot pegs and skeg adjust easily, and the three hatches hold up to 400 pounds. 17'9", 52 lbs;
Stability: 4.7
Maneuverability: 3.9
