SOLO. LIGHTWEIGHT. NIMBLE.
COMFORTABLE AND SUPER STABLE FISHING KAYAK
The Whale Runner fishing kayak is very comfortable and super stable, making it suitable for rivers, lakes or the ocean.
Whether you are into fishing or like to tour, this single kayak is the one for you. All of the Vanhunks kayaks are built in world-class manufacturing facilities and offer you the highest quality components when it comes to fishing kayaks.
The Vanhunks Whale Runner is the younger brother to our Deluxe 9-foot Manatee. As an entry-level kayak, we still wanted to give you everything you need, but understand that if you’re starting on your kayaking adventures, you may want to begin with the basics. This is what the Whale Runner affords.
Like the Manatee, our Whale Runner is also a quick and agile 9-foot single-seater, up for all the same fun in rivers, lakes, and oceans. Take your new kayak fishing or touring. Paddle your way easily through sounds, straits, canals, lagoons, lakes, estuaries, mangrove forests, and wetlands.
Weighing in at only 23kgs, our Whale Runner is light work to get loaded on your vehicle, and into the water. Though, we haven’t sacrificed storage or stability with our most straightforward vessel in the fleet. The 32-inch-wide sit-on-top kayak offers a maximum load capacity of 150kgs, and not only has 2 round storage hatches but a roomy rear bungee storage space for all your adventure gear too.
If you’re into fishing, you’ll appreciate the four molded-in rod holders, and the integrated swivel rod holder will ensure you have your line sitting at any angle or side.
Settle into your comfortable deluxe foam-padded seat, which can be adjusted according to your needs at the D-rings, and removed when it needs a wash.
Like its older and bigger brothers, the Whale Runner is a seamless rotomolded kayak made from 5mm polyethylene, making it UV resistant.
We’re positive the premium quality brass inserts and marine-grade stainless steel fittings will see you enjoying your Whale Runner for many years to come, come rain or shine.
