Thanks to a reinforced standing platform, the tri-hull design and an exceptionally comfortable, adjustable seat, this vessel is the ultimate fishing platform.

Outfitted with our new Premium Seats, the simple deck layout provides comfort for two paddlers, along with the option for a third (small adult, child, dog) in the middle seating area. Two points of dry storage are located in front of each seat. Bow and stern open storage is available for camping excursions. The molded foot placements will give you the support you need for long summer days.
