Wahoo S Series
The latest in motor-kayak design from Galaxy Kayaks now also has the option to use our soon-to-be-released pedal system (due Spring/Summer of 2018 - sold separately)!
The new Wahoo S Series comes with many improvements to its predecessor and has been redesigned to be a fully functioning hybrid motor and pedal kayak.
The first notable change is the redesigned rocker which lifts the nose and makes this kayak even more sea-worthy.
Another new feature is the addition of a hand rudder control system. This allows more functionality for those who want to make the most out of our new pedal drive system. The hand rudder offers an easy control system that also helps maximise onboard cockpit space (more room for your stand-up fishing sessions). But don’t fret, for those of you who liked using the foot steering, we’ve left the foot pedals for anyone that so desires. Versatility and customisation is what this kayak is all about.
This wide and spacious kayak comes with an elevated Vista Chair that gives maximum comfort and great visibility as you glide along the water. Another new feature is that the chair has been placed on rails which allows for adjustable positioning when using the new pedal drive system. And of course the chair has been designed with maximum stability in mind so that you can sit comfortably above the water and avoid getting wet.
The Wahoo S Series kayak is the first hybrid specialised motor and pedal kayak by Galaxy Kayaks. This fishing kayak was developed using feedback from countless customers across our many countries as well as our experienced Pro-Team who wanted an electric motor and pedal kayak specifically designed for fishing. Unlike our other models that allow you to attach an external motor, the Galaxy Wahoo S incorporates the motor or pedal system into a dedicated compartment that sits neatly in the centre of the kayak. All these specifications were added while maintaining a compact enough boat that can still be used as a traditional paddling kayak.
Travelling long distances paddling a sit-on-top kayak requires serious energy and stamina. At Galaxy Kayaks we offer top of the range kayaks that are capable of covering such distance with ease. However we also know this is not a reality for everyone at all times; sometimes we just want to be able to get far fast with minimal effort.
Using the Wahoo S Series with the electric motor will allow you to travel long distances the likes of which a strong and fit paddler would struggle to cover. And certainly not with as much ease as with using this motor kayak. But if you’d prefer to get some exercise and still remain hands free, our new pedal drive system will have you covered!
Are you a Kayak Fisherman that loves trolling? If so, the Wahoo S Series is a wise choice. By choosing one of the five forward speeds and two reverse speeds available on the Wahoo S Series you can rest assured you can travel at a steady pace and save your energy for what is about to come - that prize catch. This is ideal for trolling as we maintain a steady speed and remove any distractions from our hands.
As soon as we remove the paddle from our hands we are able to remain focused on our main goal while kayaking - fishing! Hands-free Kayak Fishing means we benefit from quicker reactions to what the rod is doing. We can still easily control the direction of the kayak with the hand rudder control unit with a quick flick of the wrist (or by using the foot pedals).
Using a motor kayak when sudden gusts of wind pick up or when the current is strong also has its obvious benefits.
Since using the Wahoo S Series kayak we have discovered a new way of kayak fishing that serves a real purpose. It may not be the most traditional form of kayaking but many people who may not usually be able to enjoy everything that comes with kayaking and kayak fishing now also have a chance to get involved in the experience. And nothing makes us happier than introducing new people to the sport we love!
Whether it’s for fishing or not this kayak is simply great fun! It allows you to travel longer and further than you have before and experience new waters. It gets you out into nature and opens up a world of new adventures that may not have been possible before.
Unlike other kayaks, the Wahoo S Series has a central dedicated enclosure that supports both an electric motor and pedal drive system. Having the motor in a central position improves the speed, handling and thrust as it sits directly beneath the kayak. Having a central motor also helps protect it from damage as you can quickly lift it up and out of harm’s way. It allows you to keep a close eye on the propeller and easily dislodge any tangled weeds or rope that might get caught up in it. Having a quick-release mechanism is critical as the motor is the most expensive part of your kayak and you want to protect it as much as possible.
The Wahoo S Series kayak measures 357cm long by 84cm wide which makes it very stable and also features our new sharp rocker which allows the kayak to easily cut through water. This kayak comes geared up for some serious fishing with four sets of rails, two in the front and two in the rear, for the addition of up to 14 Railblaza Starports.
Additionally this kayak comes with an electric port that is situated close to the centre hatch. The special waterproof socket allows you to secure the motor in place and quickly plug straight into the power source. The port has cabling pre-mounted through to the battery compartment that is housed in a dedicated enclosure just behind your seat.
At Galaxy Kayaks, we know that on board space and storage is precious, which is why we’ve included a round 8" central storage hatch as well as our new front storage hatch with lid for storing any extra larger material close to hand.
Like all Galaxy Kayaks, the Wahoo S Series comes with our three year guarantee and is fully equipped with a Vista High Seat. The kayak also comes with a paddle as standard so all you need is a life jacket, and you are ready for your next adventure!
