If you are looking for a kayak that is built tough and with a very specific purpose in mind then there are a lot of options to choose from. Depending on how much money you want to spend and how durable you want your kayak to be, you can find one to suit your needs. From inflatable to something more durable, there are quite a few to choose from. Keep reading to learn more about these awesome kayaks that were built with a purpose.
Sea Eagle 330 Inflatable Kayak
Imagine blasting down a white water river–with spray flying everywhere and your heart beating like a drum–or silently paddling down a mirror-smooth lake at dawn. A pleasant dream? Definitely, but also a slice of attainable reality with the Sea Eagle 330 inflatable kayak. Designed to hold up to 500 pounds but weighing only 26 pounds itself, the 330 can up to two adults and gear, but only needs one adult to carry it to the water. It’s even tough enough to withstand dog claws thanks to the 33 mm polykrylar hull, I-beam construction, and high-frequency welded seams. Your four-legged friend can therefore stand tall while you do all the work.
The Sea Eagle 330 canoe packs down to fit in a storage bag, yet has enough cargo space for several days’ worth of camping supplies. And it’s versatile enough for plenty of uses, from fishing to yacht tending to skin-diving. It can even handle up to Class III whitewater. Other details include inflatable spray skirts, front and rear rope handles, and a self-bailing drain valve (a handy feature on Whitewater Rivers or ocean surf). This pro version of the Sea Eagle 330 also comes with two 8-foot AB30 paddles, two kayak seats, a foot pump, and a storage bag. The kayak measures 134 inches long and 34 inches wide and carries a three-year warranty.
This canoe was adapted from the 2008 model Wilderness Systems Tarpon 20 for the 2014 Pescador. Both boat makers share the same parent company and I would like to assume that this was their way of getting the most out of true and tested hardware and design, especially the hull.
The Perception Sport Pescador 12 Angler Kayak was designed for both beginners and experienced kayakers alike. It comes rigged with a few fishing features needed to hit the water and start performing right away. Like most entry level fishing kayaks, this one comes with a Scotty mount, and one flush mount rod holder but they made it very easy to make additions. You can add up to two flush mounts and three mighty mounts if you intend to use track balls and extra rod holder.
