It’s compact – but it’s got plenty of room on top. It’s the all new Trident 11 from Ocean Kayak, the world’s number 1 for sit-on-tops.

At 11’5” (3.5m), long with a width of 30.5” (77.5cm) the Prowler 11 may be the smallest fishing kayak in the Trident line, but it’s big on performance. It offers an impressive blend of stability and load capacity weighing just 54lbs (24.5kg), but able to carry up to 350-400 lbs (158.8 -181.4 kg).

Ocean Kayak designers have maximised the potential of this versatile sit-on-top by packing it with features and making it great to handle with excellent manoeuvrabilty. The combination of the roomy cockpit with Comfort Plus™ seat back and the adjustable foot braces give real paddling comfort over long distances. A rudder system can be fitted as optional.

The mounting and storage systems have also been carefully thought out so there’s plenty of space for fishing accessories – and the fish. The large bow hatch incorporates a cross lock strap down facility to keep everything watertight and secure and the oversize tank well can be used to stow a large fishing crate.

There are two flush mounted rod holders, a moulded in cup holder and the Rod Pod™ provides convenient storage for fishing rods. Fitting a fishfinder is straightforward due to the transducer compatible scupper, plus there’s a battery bag.

The Prowler Trident 11 is a great choice for inland waters, slow moving rivers, narrow inlets and moderate ocean swells. There’s a choice of colours and a base, non-angler model is also available without the fishing accessories for individual customisation. The price is scheduled to be £629.
