Meet the Amberjack: Vanuhunks’ newly developed, unique Hybrid Kayak/SUP.

While we came up with Amberjack’s hybrid kayak / SUP concept as a single fishing platform, this 12’6″ lake, river, and ocean-faring vessel can also be enjoyed as a stand up paddle board, and makes an all-round great adventure craft.

 

AMBERJACK

Amberjack’s max capacity of 500lbs and the EPS foam core makes it ideal for those looking for a solution to handle the heavier weight loads.

With endless ways to set up your fishing platform to suit your needs, we anticipate Vanhunks’ Amberjack will become your new favorite ride as you take on choppy water and ocean swell with ease.

Amberjack offers you unparalleled stability and tracking and comes up as a real smooth ride.

Weighing in at 72lbs, you won’t need to call on your buddy to help you carry it from your truck to the water, but if you had help, you’d have rubber carry handles to lift at the bow and stern, as well as two side carry handles near the seating rig.

There are 2 Swivel rod holders flanking the front of the deck, while 4 accessory tracks line up and down the sides. A fifth accessory track runs perpendicular to the others, squaring off at the front section, before the nose. Set up more rod holders, action cam mounts, GPS navigation gadgets, solar chargers, and so much more.

Spend all day in your favorite fishing spot, parked off on your deluxe adjustable aluminum seat (sold separately), on the open deck, or even use your cooler box as your seat, which can be secured to your Amberjack with tie-down straps.

Simply put, our Amberjack is a cross between a stand up paddle board and a kayak, with the best of both’s technology. The EPS foam core of Vanhunks SUPs is finished off with the same 5mm Rotomolded Polyethylene that Vanhunks’ kayaks sport, giving the Amberjack some serious sink-proofing.

This buoyant, rigid hybrid fishing platform measures 32 inches wide, and can be paddled with either a double-bladed kayak paddle, or your stand up paddle board paddle, which are sold separately.

Use the front and rear bungee storage areas to keep Personal Flotation Devices, fishing nets, hawg troughs, and anything else you want secured to the deck. All inserts and fixtures are premium quality captive brass and marine-grade stainless steel.
