13' Saturn Inflatable Ocean Fishing Kayak OFK396X
Just arrived, our newest kayak is ocean-ready and produced with a similar design to our Standard Fishing Kayak but with a self-bailing floor which allows water to escape through ports in the side of the inflatable floor. The 13' Ocean Fishing Kayak (OFK396X) has some new improvements and the "X" modification designates our upgraded Leafield C7 inflation valves (tops in the industry). The ocean fishing kayak borrows some great features from two of our very popular models - 13' Saturn Fishing Kayak FK396 hull with aluminum bench seats and the Ocean Kayak OK420 self-bailing floor. Those features make this fishing kayak ready for use in flatwater rivers or the open ocean where waves allow water to splash over the side of the kayak. The floor has 4 drains/ports that will quickly allow any water to discharge through the bottom. It includes 1 removable large fin ($40 value) and the top of the line Leafield C7 inflation valves only found in the "X" model ($60 value).
The OFK396X inflatable kayak is lightweight and can be carried by one person. It can be used as a kayak for 1 or 2 persons. The removable aluminum benches can be used for optional fishing rod holder attachment points or a flat surface for preparing your bait or gear. For stronger back support, the aluminum benches can be removed and 2 optional highback kayak seats can be attached to the pre-installed D-rings. Highback seats are not included but can be purchased separately.
Please note that while this kayak is self-bailing it is not really intended for whitewater kayaking use. It was designed to allow water to penetrate through the floor but the speed at which the water releases from the kayak is much slower than our professional whitewater kayaks. If you are looking to use the kayak in river rapids then please consider the 13' Saturn Whitewater Kayak which will yield much better self-bailing results.
