"100 days on the water"
To say that I am excited about Sterling kayaks is an understatement.
The Grand Illusion seems to be a perfect kayak for me for teaching overnight courses and guiding.
First and foremost, the Grand Illusion is meeting and exceeding my best expectations.
By far, this is the best touring kayak I ever tried.
I love my Grand Illusion it is a class apart--Amazing performance--Outstanding Maneuverability
Your slogan “Pure performance” is so true.
In my humble opinion the Grand Illusion is in a different class.
I had so much fun at Surge Narrows with the Grand Illusion.
Keep up the outstanding work Sterling!

Even at “our” ages, we manage to “turn heads” with how easily maneuverable are our boats, and how stable they are on the water. We have been able to paddle in some difficult waters lately, and have not experienced any stability issues. Love those boats!!! :-) Alan owns a Grand Illusion, his wife Marlene owns an Ice Kap
It was a real treat for us to watch you work on our kayaks this past week and learn from you. We paddled around Orcas over the weekend and on one brief occasion, I had to partially deploy the skeel in following seas and it worked perfectly ….Thank you, thank you thank you!!!! One on of our trips, 6 of the 10 boats on the journey were Sterling boats!!!!!
The boats sell themselves, but we certainly are strong ambassadors for you! :-) Alan
