The YakAngler crew had the chance to demo a prototype of this kayak at Outdoor Retailer last August. We were all quite impressed with the combination of speed and stability of the prototype. Since then, they have added all the features we have come to expect on a NuCanoe, as well as some new great concepts.
The specs on the Pursuit:
- Length: 13.5' Beam
- Width: 35”
- Height: 12”
- Draft: 3”
- Hull Weight: 82 lbs
- Max Weight Capacity: 500 lbs
- Self-Bailing Capacity: 350 lbs
- Maximum Auxiliary Power: 2.5 HP or equivalent
The Pursuit features front and rear hatches, internal rod tubes, 64” total of Freedom Tracks on the front and rear, a pair of flush mount rod holders, a replaceable drag plate, paddle holsters, a wide open deck, and the new Pursuit Seating System.
The Pursuit Seating System boasts some really impressive features, and is modeled after high-end ergonomic chairs. The seat is covered in a highly-breathable fabric and has 5” of on-the-fly adjustable travel. The seat is mounted on 54” inches of Freedom Track on the large flat deck for unmatched adjustability.
