The Kraken 13.5 is an all-new option for paddlers looking to tackle big water. Based on The Kraken 15.5 platform, the 13.5 sheds some length for more maneuverability but with all the punch of its big brother. This kayak, just like the original, is designed for the most challenging paddling environments in the world and intended for the offshore and big lake kayak angler. A natural follow up to the first collaborative design between legendary kayak angler, Jim Sammons and Jackson Kayak’s design team led by Tony Lee. The new Kraken 13.5 is a boat shaped and built to accommodate those hitting the open water, in a nimble, smaller footprint, but still capable of big water management. It’s designed for punching through surf, handling rough offshore currents, swells, beach landings and those who desire ultimate performance and maneuverability while chasing big fish.
The Cuda 12 is the little sibling to the Cuda 14; it was designed for those anglers who enjoy fishing many different water types – rivers, lakes, ponds, ocean – but can only purchase one kayak. The popular 12ft length makes it easy to store and transport off the water, yet is quick enough and maneuverable for any on water situation. The deck sports all the comforts and angler friendly features that fishermen have come to love about the Jackson brand.
This sit-inside kayak design incorporates several other Jackson fishing features found throughout our sit-on-top kayaks. Features like the Hi/Lo seating in the comfortable Elite Seat 2.0, the fast Cuda 12 hull shape, enormous amounts of protected storage for fishing and hunting gear, protected rod storage in tubes along the sidewalls, interchangeable hard deck and optional soft deck options, and strategically located accessory mounting locations. It is also one of our most stable kayaks since the standing area is actually below the waterline, thus creating a very stable platform. The Kilroy is built with YakAttack tracks and comes standard with various RAM accessories. The Kilroy is tailored for the outdoorsman, offering features for the kayak angler, hunter, wildlife photographer, bird watcher, and anyone hoping to enjoy being on the water all while staying high and dry!
Designed for cruising the waterways with comfort and efficiency, with loads of storage and convenient accessories, the Tupelo is your premier, feature laden recreational kayak. Like touring and whitewater kayaks, the Tupelo comes sized for the paddler, with the 12.5 for larger paddlers and the lighter, narrower 12.0 ideal for medium or smaller paddlers. Ideal to match one of each for a couple. Both feature Jackson’s removable and super comfy Elite Seat, with adjustable lumbar support. YakAttack tracks around the deck allow for you to accessorize with RAM products like rod holders, GPS, camera mounts, smart phones and more. Versatility, comfort, ease of use….the Tupelo has it all!
