AGILE, STABLE, FUN and easy to handle fishing or touring kayak
Designed for paddling in lakes and rivers, but the Manatee fishing or touring kayak is no stranger to the ocean and small surf.
A Compact single sit-on-top kayak.
MANATEE FISHING OR TOURING KAYAK
At Vanhunks Boarding, we don’t think there’s a cooler fishing and touring kayak than our 9-foot, single, sit-on-top Manatee. Like its namesake, our Manatee is also happy to cruise the waters alone or in pairs.
Completely not territorial, the 9-foot Vanhunks Manatee plays big brother to our 9-foot Whale Runner kayak, and features a few extra comfort and convenience trimmings with the accessory tracks and deluxe aluminum adjustable, padded seat. And while Manatees themselves may seem large, heavy and slow, ours weighs in at an easy 51 lbs and can undoubtedly make lakes, rivers, and oceans quick and nimble work. Rest assured; you’ll have 330 lbs to carry before your Manatee fishing and touring kayak starts to lag.
Our 5mm rotomolded Polyethylene Manatee fishing and touring kayak is professionally designed and rigged to provide maximum stability, maneuverability, and performance on the water. The Vanhunks Manatee is known for its playfulness in small surf and gets you heading back out through the breakers quickly with its fast turns. And given its width of 32 inches, you’d feel steady as a rock while standing and fishing from our beloved Manatee.
Spending all day out on the water will not put a dampener on your personal comfort levels either. Our raised deluxe aluminum seat ensures you’re not going to be getting soaked by water spray pooling beneath you. Manatee’s seat is padded breathable mesh and removable, so once you’ve made it to your camping destination, use your seat at your campfire or on the beach too.
Ideal for beginner, intermediate, and advanced kayakers, your Manatee fishing or touring kayak is the perfect choice for any leisure occasion, and the premium quality marine-grade stainless steel and captive brass inserts will ensure you have many days out on the water together.
The Vanhunks Manatee fishing or touring kayak is UV and impact resistant, and proves impressively durable.
