King Fisher –modular fishing kayak from Point 65 Sweden
The awesome KingFisher solves the major drawbacks of other fishing kayaks:
1. Slow and awkward paddling due to the hull-width needed for stability
2. Extremely heavy and cumbersome carrying and lifting
Maverick kayak designer Magnus De Brito worked the problems and found the solutions…
Stability and performance The KingFisher is probably the most stable fishing kayak you’ve
ever been in. Astonishing, considering its sleek 31.1’’ (79cm) beam. Most fishing kayaks are
35’’ (90cm ) wide. The KingFisher is more than just stable —it´s incredibly well balanced.
Standing up to fish from it, is a walk in the park. When paddling, you’ll instantly notice its
great speed and straight tracking capabilities. And its unique, hand-controlled, double-sided
rudders make it exceptionally easy to maneuver and turn.
How is all this possible?
The skilfully designed trimaran hull gives the KingFisher its solid stability, lightning speed and
straight-as-an-arrow tracking power!
Another great challenge was solving the weight problem. If you´ve ever tried heaving a
fishing kayak up onto the roof of your car, you know the feeling. They are just too heavy and
cumbersome. Until now. Point 65’s proven, patented, Snap-Tap modular system, allows the
kayak to snap apart into two manageable sections that fit inside most cars. The process of
snapping the King Fisher apart takes only a couple of seconds. Assembly is just as quick and
easy. The Point 65 modular Snap-Tap system, introduced in 2009, has been successfully
applied to a number of Point 65 kayak models and sold in the tens of thousands all around
the world by some of the most reputable outdoor and paddle sport-retailers. A proven
success! Carrying half a kayak is twice as easy —and it fits inside most cars. Not only that,
you can store it under your bed, get it upstairs in the elevator, and even check it in when
Can it get any better?
Your KingFisher is already extremely stable, fast, straight tracking, agile, easy to carry,
transport and store —all using proven technology. Is there more?
Yes! The Kingfisher also features a huge carrying capacity with the ability to take a full load
of gear, provisions and any size of paddler.
The KingFisher Game Chair
Featuring one of the most comfortable seats on the kayak fishing market, the Kingfisher
Game Chair offers a variety of settings to give you a comfortable and effective paddling
position. The super comfy KingFisher Game Chair, in combination with the kayak´s world
class stability, speed, and logical accessory positioning, makes the KingFisher a great
platform for fishing of all kinds and a serious fishing machine in all water types.
Powered by arms, legs or motor
While the KingFisher’s sleek trimaran hull is easily propelled by traditional paddle strokes
and using the good old double-bladed kayak paddle is still an extremely effective way of
moving across great expanses of rough water, you might want your arms and hands free for
Legs –The Dragon Drive pedal system
The optional Dragon Drive easily pops into its slot in the kayak and effectively propels you
forward and backward using leg power. The pedal drive unit is extremely light weight, is fully
waterproof and features several gear ratios. It’s one of the few pedal driven units on the
market that can be driven both forward and in reverse. With your largest muscle group in
play, kayak fishing becomes easier and more efficient than ever.
Electricity –The ScubaJet Motor drive
The optional, electrical, ScubaJet Motor Drive is redefining the world of kayak propulsion
technology. The motor unit and integrated battery pack, can easily be attached below the
kayak or on the side, depending on your preference.
The ScubaJet Motor Drive takes you farther, faster with top speeds reaching up to 6 mph at
a range of around 20 miles. Its integrated lithium battery lasts up to 8 hours. At only 15lbs.
the KingFisher´s ScubaJet Motor Drive comes equipped with an intelligent remote throttle
that displays your GPS-calculated speed, remaining range and battery runtime. Fully variable
forward/reverse functionality allows you to set the throttle to the speed you want so you
can be hands-free. It’s quiet, low-maintenance and light-weight.
