The new Sturgeon fishing kayak is here. Click here to view the product. This kayak comes with lots of improvements including:
1 transducer compartment: located in a scupper plug hole on the bottom of the kayak. This means you can fit the transducer under the kayak in direct contact with the water and easily pass cables through to your fish finder whilst keeping the unit nice and protected. No DIY necessary - Galaxy Kayaks have already done this for you, meaning you can spend more time out on the water.
1 lifeline made from durable rope: this durable rope allows fisherman to connect items to it, and is useful for manoeuvres such as anchor positioning. The new rope, versus the previous elastic, also improves manoeuvrability of the kayak if the worst happens and you need to use it as a lifeline.
Improved rudder and pedal system: the new model comes with stronger pedals and a smoother rudder system that allows for an increased angle of manoeuvre and helps control the kayak in rough conditions. Additionally, there is now a new wire protective sleeve on the rudder cable which means it is better protected from water damage and easier to replace.
Improved waterline: the rear tank of the kayak has been raised by 5cm and the anchor storage has been replaced, which reduces water retention in this section during rough conditions and improves its draining ability. Our customer research revealed that many fishermen use a box storage setup in the rear of their kayaks, meaning the new tank also improves the stability of using such a storage system.
2 silicone pockets: for storing any small items close to hand. Made from durable silicone and specially designed to help avoid tangling of hooks or other small items.
2 paddle clips: to safely store your paddle when not in use.
1 G Star mount: in a universal standard for adding any G Star compatible accessories and those of other brands.
1 drainage plug: now located in the front of the kayak to further improve its ability to completely drain any bilge water that has been absorbed into the hull after use.
Identification plaque: now available on this model
Stainless steel screws: have been improved to the highest marine grade steel available
Improved hatch seals: have been made more flexible so that you now get an even better fit
