Size and Weight

The Radar 115 kayak has a length of 11’ 8” (356 cm). The width is 34.5” (88 cm) gives the user enough space to feel comfortable and stable on the water. With a deck height of 15” (38 cm), it sits relatively low in the water. The weight is 85 lbs. (38.5 kg) so it’s quite heavy for its size. However, this is due to the amount of material used to provide all of the molded-in features on this boat.

Capacity

The maximum capacity is 450 lbs. (204 kg), which is more than adequate for an average-sized adult and all of the gear you may bring along.

Features

At the bow, there’s a rigid carry handle which can be used to strap the kayak down when transporting it. Directly behind it is a bungee used as a paddle park. On the front of the deck is a hatch covering a dry storage compartment. This is located on a flat surface that will allow you to mount a variety of accessories onto the deck via drilling into it if you so choose.

Then there is the “Flex Pod OS Console System”. This is a box which is mounted into the deck and lowers into a hole in the hull. It is retained with two clips, and serves as a place to mount the “Helix MD motor Drive”, an electric motor offered by Wilderness Systems designed for this boat. Or, you can mount a transducer underneath, and a fish finder on the top. It has a handle to easily pull it in and out.

Behind it is a scupper box fitting into a hole in the deck through the hull. It’s meant to accommodate the “Helix PD Pedal Drive System” which is a pedal-driven propeller unit. Again, it can also be used as a place to mount electronics such as a side scanning fish finder.

The hatch in front of the seat is a dry storage space and is flush with the deck. It’s designed to be strong enough to stand on. The foot rests on either side are large enough for comfort, padded with foam, and adjusted with levers. Each side of the cockpit has a track for mounting accessories as well as a molded pocket to store small gear items.

The seat is a “lawn chair” style having a high, low, and reclined setting. It’s constructed with breathable UV resistant mesh material and can be folded backwards for more room on the deck when standing and casting. It’s mounted on two tracks allowing it to slide forward or backward depending on your height or preferences.

On either side of the kayak is a paddle park and a place to mount a rudder steering system to accommodate both right and left handed users. Behind the seat is a large tankwell with a bungee to carry milk crates, tackle boxes, or other equipment. Each side of the tankwell has a short section of track to mount accessories, or the “Airpro 3D Seat”. It’s an entire “perch” to stand on top of and fish from. There is another carry handle at the stern and behind it a mounting plate ledge that lets you add a trolling motor or battery-operated stakeout poles.

Performance

This boat is very stable due to its hull design, which is a mixture of a pontoon style and a tri-hull. This allows it to track very well while still being maneuverable and stable enough to stand and walk on. It isn’t the fastest kayak, but it doesn’t drag through the water either. It offers a good combination of stability, maneuverability, and tracking. Even in strong currents and rougher waters, it does not drift out and stays on course.
