Become Legendary On A Vanhunks Fishing Kayak :
The Orca 13’0!
Vanhunks' goal was to create the most versatile Tandem and Solo fishing kayak in one unique Kayak for the market. After more than two years in research and development, they are happy to present the Orca 13ft Tandem or Solo fishing kayak. The Orca 13’0 is the most versatile Tandem and Solo fishing kayak in one unique Kayak for the market. The Orca is Vanhunks' largest capacity kayak with the ability to paddle both as a Tandem or a Solo fishing kayak. The Orca fishing kayak is unrivaled with all its characteristics. Space, versatility, maneuverability, acceleration, adaptability, responsiveness, stability, tracking, and the list still goes on when describing this predator.
The Orca’s diversity with its seating positions makes it great for fishing on all platforms as it easily adapts to both solo and tandem seating. In Tandem mode, both the front and the back seat is fitted with adjustable tracks to ensure a comfortable position and equipped with an adjustable Aluminium seat on a slider system to move your body position forward and backward without much effort. The Aluminum seats are spacious and raised, ensuring you are not going to get soaked by any water in the seating area from ocean spray. With ample room to move around, entry and exit, gear access, are easy. Recline your seat for a laid-back paddle position, or secure it more upright for moments when you need to dash forward quickly.
The Orca features Hull Technology that combines all its most significant aspects throughout the entire design, making for ultimate performance in multiple water environments. In addition to a flat platform in the deck area for standing and freedom of movement, the Orca boasts state-of-the-art outfitting, including expansive rails and a multitude of storage opportunities. A one-handed rudder control next to the back paddler allows for easy maneuvering.
The rudder system is an integrated design with the bottom of the hull and no need to worry about obstacles that can damage your rudder; the rudder is securely horizontally aligned under the Kayak.
The stealthy stability of the Kayak makes it great for fishing. You can cast while you are standing up, and bringing in that big one from a standing position allows more control when playing the catch to the Kayak. The stability takes away the worry about the boat tipping, and you are falling off. The bottom of this vessel is complemented with a Double V shape throughout the hull for stability and speed. The Double V increases the flow of water through the hull area. The hull is a flat engineered hull for superior stability, yet effortless paddling. Thirteen feet in length and thirty-four inches in width, you are assured of stability and load capacity. The Orca fishing Kayak is proud to hold a load capacity of 280kg / 617 pounds, and offer an oversized deck area and additional storage space.
The Orca fishing Kayak is equipped with the functionality to easily mount a motor mount on the back of the Kayak for when you want to get to your next secret spot quicker. The motor will not interfere with your rudder system and no need to make adjustments to your steering system.

Love the Kayak
First of all I called to check and make sure the mount for the trolling motor was included as it is listed as a feature of the Orca 13' (as of june 23, 2021), but it wasnt and I am waiting an extra couple weeks for it to be sent. The boat can support lots of weight, and I am able to stand on it and fish, but I would not turn around while standing because it seems the weight displacement would make you nearly tip. It 310 lbs of people. A huge JBL 13 lb speaker, a packed Igloo cooler, and all our gear, and I am sure it will handle my trolling motor too. It sits high above the water too. The seats are pretty comfortable, but the hardware is not so sturdy. I found a missing nut when unboxing the kayak. It slid off the kayak screw and was in the boat. Youll need to quarter turn all of the hardware. The screws for the paddle holders, and most of all the rudder is hand controlled with a little steering handle. It only attaches with a tiny screw that seems to be uncapable of lasting long. It is about 80 lbs ans is possible to load on my roof rack alone. This thing is spacious, but they put the rod holders right in the way of where your paddles would be when tandem. So youll likely have to use the extra rod holders that are in the middle of the boat in the front and middle of the mid portion. The blue color looks amazing in person. Im happy with my purchase. Customer service is friendly, ans deserves a raise for helping me so kindly.
