Vanhunks Mahi Mahi 11' Fishing Kayak



Focus your attention on getting your bait out in the water, and when the time comes, reel in that monster!

The Mahi Mahi is a trophy fish found in temperate, tropical, and subtropical waters around the world, and just like its namesake, the Vanhunks Mahi Mahi sit-on-top Fin Drive kayak loves the same conditions.

The removable Fin Drive System is straightforward to use, allowing you to reach top speeds in no time and maintain momentum when you are moving, which frees up your hands when trawling. The easy-to-install Fin Drive works on a ‘push’ action making for natural movement for most people. The Mahi Mahi is a smooth ride and takes little effort to get it moving. The fin drive navigates the Kayak forward, and with the quiet propulsion of the Fin Drive, the fish will not hear you coming and will still allow you the element of surprise. Kayak paddles produce splash and generate noise, but with the Fin Drive you will not experience as much noise and disturbance, giving you a stealthy advantage over your next catch.

A one-handed rudder control allows for easy maneuvering. The rudder system is integrated with the design of the bottom of the hull so no need to worry about obstacles that can damage your rudder. The rudder is secure and horizontally aligned under the kayak.

The superior stability of the kayak makes it great for fishing. You can cast while you are standing up and not worry about the boat tipping or you falling off. Finding the perfect ratio between weight and balance meant we had to relook the length and width of this vessel. 11 feet in length and 34 inches in width, weighing in at 77lbs with the fin drive system and 70lbs without the fin drive system, we believe we found the perfect weight to balance ratio. Less length means less weight to be peddled, yet the wide hull still secures plenty of storage space, which is ideal if you bag that big one.

The bottom of this vessel is complemented with a deep single ‘V’ shape in the front that flows into a double-V in the back for added stability and speed of water flow channeled through the tail area. The hull is designed for superior stability, yet effortless forward propulsion.

Equipped with a round storage hatch between the paddler’s seat and the fin drive, front storage, rear storage system, and added room behind your seat, space will be no problem.

The Mahi Mahi is kitted out with six horizontal molded rod placements and two integrated rod holders at the back. On either side of the paddler, the integrated tackle box storage compartments are molded into the design, and don’t forget the molded-in cup holder.

When it came to seating, we gave the Mahi Mahi an adjustable aluminum seat on a slider system so you can shift your position forward and backward without much effort, to ensure a comfortable pedal. When you’re out on the water all day, you need to be comfortable, the Vanhunks Mahi Mahi Fin Drive provides just that.

It’s spacious, and the raised padded seat ensures you’re not going to get soaked by any spray water pooling in the seating area. With ample room to move around, entry and exit is easy and so is gear access. Recline your seat for a laid back paddle position, or secure it more upright for moments when you need to make a dash forward quickly.

As an added feature, the Mahi Mahi has the functionality to easily mount a motor at the stern for when you want to get to your next secret spot quicker.

The motor will not interfere with your rudder system and no need to make adjustments to your steering system.

Do not want to add a Fin Drive System? No problem — a drive cover box is available. Simply remove the fin drive and the cover box fits into the open space. The box allows for additional storage while transforming your Mahi Mahi to a paddle kayak.

Great Service

Great company to deal with. Matt worked hard to work out the details of getting me a canoe to me while I was on the road.

He arranged for me to pick my Frontier 12 in Denver, then when the manufacturer couldn’t fulfill my paddle order, he found a paddle for me through a competitor and arranged for it to be delivered to my next destination.

Then...... when I decided to purchase a casting bar Matt again worked out the details of getting it to me while I was still traveling.

His service was definitely above and beyond what one normally gets from even companies that offer great service.

Thanks for all your hard work Matt! You helped make an incredible fishing summer!
