Point 65 Martini GTX Angler Solo Modular Kayak - Green Cammo
The Martini GTX Angler by Point 65 might just be the most versatile, decked fishing kayak out there! Its modular, sit inside design allows for a safe, strong, and stable kayak while providing the amazing portability of all of Point 65’s modular kayaks. The solo version comes in 2 pieces and the tandem comes in 3, and these pieces snap together and apart in seconds. This “snap-ability” allows the Martini GTX Angler to break down into sections to fit in the back of most cars – making it by far the easiest-to-carry fishing kayak on the market.
The “snap-ability” mentioned above is Point 65’s revolutionary Snap-Tap technology – meaning the Martini GTX Angler snaps apart into back and front sections (the tandem version has a back, front, and middle section) and re-assembles in seconds. The coolest part about this is that you can have a solo and a tandem kayak in one! For those days you go out by yourself, leave out the mid section and you have a 10’, 300-lb. capacity, solo kayak. Bring someone along and snap in a mid section for a 14’, 530-lb. capacity tandem kayak! Or bring the whole party and snap in several mid sections! The record so far is a 100-man kayak built by adding middle sections to Point 65’s Tequila! sit on top recreational kayak! Instead of additional people, an extra mid section is a great way to create more space for gear, tackle, or cooler space! The solo version of the Martini GTX Angler does not come with a mid section, but we have them available for purchase!
The Martini GTX Angler is packed with “must have” features that kayak anglers demand. From lakes, to rivers, to the open ocean, this boat has no boundaries. The solo and the mid-section alike come equipped with rod holders. Two of these are integrated, flush-mounted behind the seat and one is on a deck mount in front of the paddler. This deck mounted rod holder can be removed and replaced with any compatible hardware of your liking. In addition, the Martini GTX Angler Solo is equipped with an additional deck mounts to enable the owner to add more rod holders or other equipment. Two large hatches offer dry storage for plenty of gear. The Martini Angler features a fish-o-meter on the side of the boat so you can measure your catch.
By using a spray deck around the cockpit, the paddler can experience a comfortable dry ride. The Martini GTX Angler is also equipped with Point 65’s amazing AIR seat. The AIR seat is super comfortable and has a pneumatically adjustable backrest. It’s made of honey-comb patterned material in combination with mesh-like fabric, which is laminated and molded over EVA foam. A hand pump allows the user to adjust the firmness.
If you’re looking for an extremely versatile fishing kayak that is easy to carry, store, and transport this is it!

About Point 65
Point 65 Beginnings
The idea behind Point 65 came from the magical place of Point 65° North. It is the island, Rönnskär, near the Northern City of Skellefteå, Sweden and the home of the Pite-Rönnskär lighthouse. It was built in 1905, and is surrounded by hundreds of islands – ideal for exploring the outdoors. The islands’ beauty combined with the engineering and ingenuity of the lighthouse were the essence of what the Point 65 brand wanted to achieve.
Founded in 1996, Point 65 is now the leading outdoor brand in Europe, and one of the fastest growing outdoor brands in the world. Point 65’s products are sold all over the world, with innovation as their hallmark.
Point 65 has been the recipient of numerous awards and recognition from multiple renowned kayaking magazines and authorities.
Dedicated to quality, form, and function, Point 65 is innovative, their products are functional, and their design is Scandinavian. Their mission is to inspire people to use the outdoors, through innovative, unique, and outstanding products.
Point 65 is the company behind the ingenious, practical, modular take-apart kayaks, and the Rum Runner modular stand up paddleboard (SUP). These modular water crafts easily snap together to form one solid boat, and snap apart for easy transportation and storage.
On top of their modular kayaks and the Rum Runner modular standup paddleboard, Point 65 also offers a wide range of state-of-the-art bags and hard shell backpacks - which double as the highest rated spine protectors in the world while protecting and keeping your gear dry. These packs were previously known as “Boblbee”.

Point 65 has some amazing members on their team. These members include the ultimate test paddler, Freya Hoffmeister, one of the leading designers in Scandinavia, Magnus De Brito, and the living paddling legend, Nigel Foster.
