Ocean Kayak introduces shorter version of its Ultra 4.7 kayak
Ocean Kayak unveiled the latest model in its dedicated fishing range at the Southampton Boat Show in the UK.
Designed in conjunction with America’s Cup engineer Richard Karn, the Ultra 4.3 is a shorter and lighter version of the company’s 4.7 model, introduced last year, making it easier to handle off the water. It also has new and modified fishing features on board, including a bespoke version of the acclaimed seat from Ocean Kayak‘s Necky Vector range.
New Zealander Karn worked with professional kayak fishermen and Ocean Kayak’s designers to optimise the speed and performance of the Ultra’s new hull.
“With Richard’s expert design input, the 4.3 is much faster than you would expect from a boat of this length,” says Ocean Kayak.
“When paddling it feels like you are in a kayak with a much longer waterline, although in reality this is a wonderfully compact and sleek boat. The new seat also ensures a really comfortable ride.
“The Ultra series sets the standard in fishing kayaks.”
