Vibe Seaghost review

I have owned my vibe Seaghost for over a year now it has taken on rivers, great lakes, inland lakes. This yack is awesome! I added a rear facing seat to take my son out with me and always have him with me. This yack is stable enough for both of us to stand up at the same time. It is fast on the water even with my 10 year old on the back. I have out paddeled every other sit on top yack I have gone out with. The rudder is a huge asset. It drafts very shallow I can float in 3" of water with both of us abord. Had an issue where I lost the rudder pivot clip after backing into a shale bank wall. I filed a warranty claim for the clip 3 days later a complete new rudder showed up. They stand behind their products and the owners group on Facebook is amazing, helpful and willing to help each other out and allow potential new customers demo their yack to help potential new owners and vibe. Their no drama just adventure montra is truly a lifestyle of a vibe owner. Great kayaks, amazing price, as capable if not more than yacks at 2 times the cost. If you buy a vibe you will not regret it.

Pros & Cons

Pros:
Best fishing platform at that price point
Cons:
Center console long wish seat flipped up vertical to allow for standing platform.

2017- Vibe Sea Ghost 130

This is definitely the best yak you will find if it fits YOUR fishing requirements.
Very comfortable seat, especially in the raised position.
Extremely stable, stood up first time out, might want to add a "pull up" strap if you core is out of shape!
Very fast in the water, Hook 4 said I was cruising at 3.33 mph ...WOW!
The one dislike and not that it is all that bad, is the console could be a little shorter. My only drawback.
Things to remember!
It is heavier, so loading on cartop requires some additional accessories (C-Tug or similar wheel cart) to move it around. I also had to get a "Boat Roller" to place on the trunk to slide it up on the "j-bars", Very helpful.
This is Why I Vibe!! Awesome Yak!

Pros & Cons

Pros:
The yak does everything you would expect it to do. Tracks great, wind at your back -Rudder steers you perfectly!
Cons:
Just wish the center console was only half the size giving you some "flat space" to leave things on deck without being forced under the leg area.

Best Around for the money

Great kayak for the money. This boat handles large swells and rough water with ease. I have yet to turtle in this kayak either. Fishes great. I would recommend this brand over any other.

Best bang for the buck out there!

I saw this kayak online about a year ago. I started researching kayaks and realized that you would have to spend hundreds more to get a comparable kayak from one of the big companies. I took a gamble and purchased the 2015 Seaghost and haven't been disappointed. I use it in the surf to take out my shark baits and have also used it in the bay. It tracks very well, is fast, and very stable. The only con could possibly be that I didn't wait for the 2016 model that looks even better. I would highly recommend this kayak to anyone.

Pros & Cons

Pros:
speed, price, included rudder system, stability
Cons:
none

I'm enjoying this kayak more and more as I use it...

I have no regrets over the purchase of the Sea Ghost 130. Every time I go out in it I'm reassured that I made the right choice to purchase this one. I did my research, paddled a few of the more-popular brands, waited and deliberated, then decided to buy the Vibe kayak. It's loaded with features and is stable, tracks well when paddling and is fast.

Pros & Cons

Pros:
Excellent value, stability, design features, fast and tracks well. Rudder is a plus. Well made.
Cons:
None
