Become Legendary On A Vanhunks Fishing Kayak :
The Bluefin 12’0 !
Stable, comfortable, and easy to use are just some of the attributes that come to mind with the Bluefin 12ft tandem recreational and fishing kayak. The Vanhunks Bluefin is manufactured from tough 5mm polyethylene and has UV protection infused in the molding process to ensure that it is strong and durable. All inserts and fixtures are premium quality and secured with marine-grade stainless steel bolts and captive brass inserts. The comfortable molded-in carry handle on each side and front and, and either end of the kayak, make it easy enough to pick up the 77lb family kayak and carry it down to the water’s edge for launching. With a 550lb weight capacity, the Bluefin is UV-resistant, extremely durable, and is the ultimate kayak for family and friends of any kayaking skill level.
The Bluefin design, based around easy accessibility to all storage areas and effort-free handling and maneuvering. The hull design flow from a deep V in the Bow flowing into a flat midsection with deep twin arched and exiting a Deep V at the stern, ensuring stability and easy paddling.
Take your 12-foot tandem kayak out on lakes, rivers, or oceans, for a day of fun with your pet, pal, partner, or progeny in this 2-plus-1 setup. Or paddle solo for some alone time with nature. Just add one of our deluxe foam padded seats in the middle.
There is adequate storage with two bungee-corded equipment tank well areas at the stern and bow on the Bluefin deck. This kayak comes complete with two hatch compartments fitted in front of each paddler. These hatches are molded in hatches and do not have any access to the hull of the kayak. These hatches are secured with a plastic cover and locked in place with a quick-release buckle. You will find a molded-in cup holder on each hatch cover.
There are four integrated sloping rod holders, two in front of the seated area and two integrated sloping rod holders situated behind the back seat for some laid-back trolling.
When you are on the water for a long-time, comfort is highly appreciated; the Bluefin has a raised deluxe aluminum seat. The seating is adjustable to recline or upright to your comfort needs, and the raised element keeps the water under the seat and not on you.

Vanhunks customer service and products are unparalleled high quality in this field of water sports. After two failed attempts of purchasing a tandem kayak from two other well known large companies (one an Internet retail giant, the other a well known retail store) where in both cases the advertised product simply did not exist or ship, and the paid transactions canceled, I came across Light As Air Boats. I placed an order and the next day I was in email conversation with Light As Air Boats confirming the order and that it would ship within a week. Yes, it did ship within that week. OUTSTANDING. The BlueFin arrived as planned and very well packed.
My girlfriend and I have now used the BlueFin 5 times, lakes and rivers, one river with a class 1 set of rapids. The BlueFin is a well made, strong, easily paddled and steered kayak. It is extremely stable, paddles straight, and is easily steered to avoid bumpy water and fallen trees. I am 5'10' and 195 Ibs, my girlfriend is no more than 5' 0" and 100 Ibs. She was extremely nervous about kayaking. Her first journey in the BlueFin demonstrated the kayak's stability, straight tracking, ease of getting in/out, comfort, and fun. The BlueFin is NOT comparably a heavy craft, yet it feels solid, built well, something one can trust, and can pack a fair amount of kit for overnight kayaking. I highly recommend the BlueFin, and Vanhunks the company and its staff.
I bought the Bluefin a couple of weeks after we got our Sauger and love them both. Great kayaks and even greater people to work with. Would definitely recommend. 100% satisfied. Thanks!!!!
