The Mahee Tandem kayak

This is my review of the new mahee tandem kayak.
The latest new kayak from ocean mouldings is just about to be realised in the uk
This kayak is called the Mahee tandem it is fully built moulded and fitted out here in the uk this kayak has been about 12 months in the planning and a lot of care and thought has gone in to it to accommodate the uk angler there are many innovative ideas built in to this kayak many you may never have seen before.

Over all this kayak has a sleek stylish appearance using only top quality materials in the moulding and fittings top quality plastics have been used with stainless fittings throughout.


Image description

The angler version comes with 4 flush mount rod holders and 2 ram holders it has 2 large hatches and 4 carry handles

Image description

The cockpit has been designed for maximum comfort for both the forward and rear angler.
The front angler has 2 forward facing flush mounts and a dry hatch

Image description

The rear angler has 2 flush mounts a dry hatch and superb console moulding
This kayak has lots of flat space for mounting fish finders ect it will be easy to kit out with additional accessories.

Image description

Each of the dry hatches have a moulded in bowl and a large rubber hatch cover which I found very easy to put on and take off

Image description

The rear tank well is deeper than most of the tank wells I have seen this should aid in holding the crate very securely

Image description

The moulding on the rear anglers console is really clever it’s deep enough to allow things not to fall out while holding them very securely

Image description

The kayak has 14 stainless steel deck loops these are very strong anchor points for seats ect each of theses deck loops has a recessed moulding to allow it to sit flat on the kayak so there is nothing sticking up to catch your hands

Image description

The kayak has 2 paddle keepers for storing the paddles while fishing one on each side both of these are in superb positions allowing the angler to use them easily the top retainer button is also recessed so can not catch your hand while paddling

Image description

The hull has fantastic lines all designed to aid stability and tracking

Image description

The moulding of the rear hull is shaped to add stability to the kayak .
The kayak has 10 moulded in scupper holes 2 of which are deeper to allow a transducer to be fitted

Image description
I think this is a superb kayak in fact I would go as far to say it is by far the best tandem kayak I have ever paddled the mouldings are superb and everything is within reach lots of flat spaces for additional kitting.
It’s great to see the person at the front get some real comfort and useful console space I spent a fair bit of time paddling this kayak solo as well and its just as good very nimble and quick for a tandem.
the hull shaping makes it glide through the water the shaped stern pushes away the water making this kayak a very dry ride with all the advantages of this kayak to the angler the bar has been raised this is sure to become the flagship tandem fishing kayak in the uk
