HB Canoe and Kayaks is making fishing kayaks a priority after watching the rapid growth of the sector in its native UK. And right at the vanguard of the company’s strategy is the Ocean Kayak Trident 13, the most popular boat in its wide range.
“We love the Trident 13, as do many anglers worldwide,” said HB’s George Sullivan. “The hull offers top performance for paddling long distances and also provides the necessary stability for fishing.”
The Ocean Kayak has all the usual features and functions, such as side-mounted carrying handles, paddle keepers and skid plate, plus a lot more besides.
The seating has been improved with the introduction of the Hybrid seat back and the leg length is a comfortable 51 inches. A large bow hatch is secured with Ocean Kayak’s trademarked Cross Lock buckle system and contains a battery storage bag.
There is also an over-sized tank well, a support track foot brace system and two flush-mounted rod holders.
“The Trident 13’s features have come on year after year, with the spec being constantly updated. There is even a ruler on board so that you can measure your catch,” added Sullivan.
The Trident 13 is 13 foot six inches long, 29.5 inches wide and weighs in at 67lb. Maximum capacity is 425lb – 475lb.
HB Canoe and Kayaks (the HB stands for Herefordshire and Borders) is owned by Philippa and Paul Hale and is situated close to the River Wye, where customers can test boats on the neighbouring lake before purchasing. The company also stocks Perception and Wilderness brands, along with accessories including rods holders, paddle clips and folding anchors..
