Best for Multiday Touring
Available sizes: 10'4" and 12'4"
With plenty of lashing attachment points up front and on the tail, the Hobie Venture can carry enough gear and supplies to outfit trips up to four days long. But it's more than just a packhorse: It tracked well in both chop and winds of up to 18 mph, and glided smoothly through flat water – just what you need for long paddles. [$1,749; hobie.com]
