Big on capacity and features with a great combination of stability with performance. A good choice for kayak fishing trips on open waters.
The Sea Ghost 130 is a fishing kayak packing a high capacity rating within a great all-round hull design that performs well on typical coastal waters and larger inland waterways. At 13ft long, the hull provides a good amount of forwards speed, with abow shape that can cope with choppy waves and small swells. This makes the Sea Ghost 130 a great choice for sea kayak fishing in calm-to-moderate conditions, and for exploring large open inland lakes, lochs and reserviours. A great choice for the mid-to-large sized paddlers wanting a dependable fishing kayak that is not a complete barge to paddle!
There are no shortage of features on the SG130. The comfortable raised Hero 2.0 seat that offers 2 height settings with backrest tilt adjustment so that you can find that perfect position for paddling. Combined with the adjustable footrests, you can find the sweet spot for comfort. The footrests are fitted with tilting toe-tabs that control the rudder system - just put pressure onto your toes as you paddle to turn the rudder... easy! The rudder helps with handling and performance when its a little windy, and can easily be hauled up and down using a control cord beside the seat for launching and landing. Two flush mount rod holders are fitted behind the seat for carrying you rods.
It is easy to add plenty of extra accessories to this kayak. There are numerous top-loading slide tracks fitted to the Sea Ghost, alongside the footwell and rear cargo area, and also on the Versa-Console. This allows you to add extra rod holders, camera mounts, fish finder mounts and more without the need to drill into the kayak. The tracks are compatible with all popular track mounts from Railblaza, Ram Mounts and Scotty. The Versa Console features a hinged design allowing easy access to a storage compartment right in front of the seat - great for keeping your fishing tackle close to hand. The console also has two mini hatches for extra gear storage too, along with a cup holder and magnetic gear holder. The Sea Ghost 130 has a transdcuer port with cover plate located underneath the kayak - this makes it easy to install a fish finder transducer. The wiring for this runs up through a dedicated scupper hole to the deck where you could mount a screen on the console for easy viewing.
Storage space for your gear is plentiful on this kayak. A large hinged oval bow hatch with easy-open latches opens to the inside of the kayak for storage of larger items such as a fold-up trolley. The popular Railblaza C-Tug Trolleys will fit in here and are our recommended trolley for this kayak. A smaller 6in screw hatch is also fitted behind the seat for further access into the hull for storage. The rear cargo area offers plenty of space up on the deck for a storage crate or large cool bag for your catch. Beside the seat there are tackle tray slots that can fit the Plano 3600 Waterproof Tackle Boxes (sold seperately). Paddle holders feature either side of the kayak and there is a quick-paddle stow bungee across the bow too. A full set of scupper plugs are also included.
The Sea Ghost 130 is a loaded fishing kayak ready to take you on your next big fishing adventure!
