Vanhunks Kayaks Mahi Mahi Fishing Kayak
The Mahi Mahi is a trophy fish found in temperate, tropical, and subtropical waters around the world, and just like its namesake, the Vanhunks Mahi Mahi sit on top kayak loves the same conditions
The rudder system is an integrated design with the bottom of the hull and no need to worry about obstacles that can damage your rudder; the rudder is securely horizontally aligned under the Kayak.
The superior stability of the Kayak makes it great for fishing. You can cast while you are standing up and not worry about the boat tipping or you falling off. Finding the perfect ratio between weight and balance meant we had to relook the length and width of this vessel. 11 feet in length and 34 inches in width and weighing in at 79 lbs with the optional fin drive system (not included) and 70 lbs without the optional fin drive system, we believe we found the perfect weight to balance ratio. Less length means less weight to be peddled, yet the wide hull still secures plenty of storage space, which is ideal if you bag that big one.
The bottom of this vessel is complemented with a Deep single V shape in the front towards a double V in the back for added stability and speed of water flow through the tail area. The hull is designed for superior stability, yet effortless forward propulsion.
Equipped with a round storage hatch between the paddler’s seat and the optional Fin Drive System (not Included), front storage, and rear storage system, with added space behind your seat, space will be no problem. The Mahi Mahi is equipped with six horizontal molded rod placements and two integrated rod holders at the back. On either side of the paddler, the integrated tackle box storage compartments are molded into the design, not to forget the molded-in cup holder.
When it came to seating, we equipped the Mahi Mahi with an adjustable Aluminium seat on a slider system to move your position forward and backward without much effort, to ensure a comfortable pedal. When you’re out on the water all day, you need to be comfortable, the Vanhunks Mahi Mahi Fin Drive System kayak provides just that. It’s spacious, and the raised padded seat ensures you’re not going to get soaked by any water in the seating area from ocean spray. With ample room to move around, entry and exit, as well as gear access, is easy. Recline your seat for a laid back paddle position, or secure it more upright for moments when you need to dash forward quickly.
As an added feature, the Mahi Mahi is equipped with the functionality to easily mount a motor mount on the back of the Kayak for when you want to get to your next secret spot quicker. The motor will not interfere with your rudder system and no need to make adjustments to your steering system.
The Optional Mahi Mahi Fin Drive System (not included) allows for a hands-free experience on the water for Kayak Fishing. You can focus your attention on getting your bait out in the water, and when the time comes, reel in that monster.
Do not want to add a Fin Drive System, no problem, a drive cover box is available. The box allows for additional storage.
This is an awesome fishing kayak and comes with everything you need to get on the water. It's stable and comfortable and tracks very well in the water. I'm pretty sure this brand is new to the U.S. this year, but don't let that stop you. Also, the Battlefiled Outdoors staff was very helpful and gladly answered all of my questions before I decided to pull the trigger. All in all i'm very happy with the kayak and the buyinig experience.
