Anyone own a Perception Montour 11.0?

Today I just purchased a Perception Montour 11.0 kayak. I won’t have a chance to use it until the weather gets a bit warmer but I’m really excited to get it in the water.



I’m just curious if anyone else owns the same kayak and what they use theirs for (fishing, flat water lakes, rivers, etc)? Do you like it? Do you wish you went with something else? Does it stay fairly straight during paddling?



Would love to here from anyone on this. Thanks!

I don’t have that, but similar.
I have the America 11, which is also Perception, and very similar in design, but without the skeg. It tracks better than my 14’ Stingray. I’d say you will be very pleased with tracking. Stability should be fairly good too. Don’t expect it to speed along or against current much, but it’s not designed for that much.



You won’t find a lot of info about the Montour, as I think it’s exclusive to Dick’s Sporting Goods. I may be wrong there, but that’s what I was told. Can’t find anyone selling it on a Google search either.

I checked one out, it’s simular to the
Perception America 11. I had the 11 for a while but I was really too big for it. I purchased a used America 13.5. All were good, stable, beginner boats.

Check out the Product Reviews
Check Product Reviews on this site. I posted a review of my Montour as have several others. Watch out - bought my Montour two years ago to putz around the local lake, now have several boats, travel to paddle and think about kayaking all the time.



Montour was a great first boat - enjoy.

Montour 11.0
I guess by now you’ve been out in your Montour. I bought my Montour 11.0 over a year ago and got a lot of kayaking in last summer and fall – and LOVED it. It is a really comfortable rec boat. The tracking is great with the skeg. My husband has a Pungo and since he’s stronger the skeg is a real benefit because I’m speedier and track straighter. It’s a really great, fun boat and I am glad I got it. It’s exclusive to Dick’s and I think it’s a better deal than Perception’s comparable boats available elsewhere. Enjoy it!
