Kayak Make & Model

Model:
UH-PK17
MSRP ($):
2,999.00
Length (ft):
14

If you are looking for a tandem fishing kayak, but the UH-TK29 from Brooklyn Kayak Company sounds like it will require too much effort, then the UH-PK17 might be worth a closer look. At 14 feet it is longer than the TK29 and it is also wider at 2.8 feet. However, what really sets it apart is the fact that it is a twin-propeller pedal kayak. This means that it doesn’t just have the stability that you want from a fishing kayak, but can also provide plenty of speed to get you to where you want to be on the water.

One of the nice things about the PK17 is that it also works well if you are a solo kayaker and only plan on using the tandem feature occasionally. It features hand-operated rudder controls, which can be found next to the rear seat. This makes it very responsive when using the rudder alone or even when adding a paddle to the mix. A combination of pedaling and paddling will enable even a solo kayaker to get great speeds with the PK17, but it is compatible with an electric trolling motor for those who prefer that option. One thing to keep in mind is that this kayak weighs 99 pounds, which can make it very unwieldy for a single person to handle on land. It does have four built-in handles, so carrying and loading it is very easy if you have a partner to help.

 

For storing your valuables, the PK17 offers a large watertight storage hatch in the bow of the kayak. Behind the rear seat you’ll also find a recessed cargo area, although it is not as large as what you’ll find on other kayaks. It does have a weight capacity limit of 660 pounds, which is more than enough for two adult users along with all of their gear. The Pk17 also offers plenty of comfort thanks to two ergonomic kayak chairs. Both have lightweight frames that are made from aluminum and includes supportive pads.

The UH-PK17 is undoubtedly a great kayak, but the weight is going to be a big issue for any solo anglers. It does offer plenty of features and is quite versatile as it can be used for much more than fishing, but whether this is an acceptable trade-off for the weight will come down to personal preferences.
