The Voyager 124 SI Angler from Future Beach is a kayak that shares many similarities with their “Explorer” model, with the exception that it is geared more towards angling. In terms of technical specifications, the Voyager measures 124 inches in length and it is 32 inches wide, while it is about 11.5 inches high. It also has a capacity of 300 lbs, which isn’t too bad considering it only weighs 45 lbs.

Future Beach designed the Voyager with a multi channel hull, so it offers decent tracking and stability for its price class. Newcomers to the hobby will appreciate how easy the Voyager is to paddle and the handling is much better than what is typically found in its price range. The Voyager is a sit inside kayak, so the cockpit area is plenty of room. It also has an adjustable back rest, along with a comfortable seat cushion, which means you can spend more time out on the water fishing. For additional comfort, the Voyager also has an adjustable step lock footrest system.

The Voyager is designed to be a fishing kayak, but it has a couple of drawbacks compared to some of the larger, more expensive models on the market. While the cockpit area has lots of room, the kayak doesn’t have a large gear well for storing a milkcrate or cooler. It does have front and rear bungees, along with front and rear storage hatches, but these are not as large or convenient to access on the go as a gear well. The deck plate does have a cup holder and side compartments for keeping smaller stow, but if you enjoy taking a lot of gear out with you then this kayak is going to feel a bit limited.

The flush mount rod holders that can be found behind the seat are very convenient, but unfortunately the Voyager lacks a swivel-rod holder up front. It also lacks a paddle holder, which is something that any good fishing kayak should have. It does have integrated rain plugs and the bow and stern carry handles are useful. Of course, it is possible to add most of the missing features with some DIY skills, but if you are looking for something that kitted out for fishing right from the start then the Voyager is a little lacking. It still has plenty to offer for its price, but unless you are a beginner, you are going to want something with a few more features.
