Vanhunks Manatee 9' Solo Fishing Kayak

Vanhunks manatee designed for paddling in lakes and rivers, but this fishing or touring kayak is no stranger to the ocean and small surf either.

As a compact single sit-on-top kayak, we don’t think there is a cooler touring and fishing kayak than Vanhunks 9-foot, single, sit-on-top Manatee. Like its namesake, our Manatee is also happy to cruise the waters alone or in pairs.

The 9-foot Vanhunks Manatee plays big brother to Vanhunks 9-foot Whale Runner kayak and features a few extra comfort and convenience trimmings, such as the accessory tracks, and deluxe aluminum adjustable padded seat. And while Manatees themselves may seem large, heavy and slow, ours weighs in at a comfortable 50lbs and can undoubtedly make lakes, rivers, and oceans quick and agile work.

Rest assured, you’ll have 330lbs to carry before your Manatee fishing, and touring kayak starts to lag.

Vanhunks 5mm rotomolded Polyethylene Manatee fishing kayak is professionally designed and rigged to provide maximum stability, maneuverability, and performance on the water. The Vanhunks Manatee is known for its playfulness in small surf and gets you heading back out through the breakers quickly with its fast turns. And given its width of 32 inches, you’d feel steady as a rock while standing and fishing from our beloved Manatee.

Spending all day out on the water will not put a dampener on your comfort levels, either. Vanhunks raised deluxe aluminum seat ensures you’re not going to be getting soaked by water spray pooling beneath you. The Vanhunks Manatee fishing has a deluxe aluminum seat that has a breathable mesh fabric.

Ideal for beginner, intermediate, and advanced kayakers, your Manatee fishing kayak is the perfect choice for any leisure occasion, and the premium quality marine-grade stainless steel and captive brass inserts will ensure you have many days out on the water together.

The Vanhunks Manatee fishing kayak is UV resistant and proves impressively durable.

    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!

    Found What I Needed!

    Owned many kayaks and the Flint is the most comfortable and customizable out there. If you fish or hunt this is the kayak for you.
