Yes, Galaxy kayaks have both listened and learned from your experiences and feedback over the past couple of years and have come up with a dedicated fishing kayak made for offshore fishing unlike the Galaxy Cruz which has made a massive impact on the kayak fishing scene lately with it’s great stability for inshore fishing and inland fishing.

The new 4 metre fishing kayak looks the business and has got everything you needto get you out there amongst the fish and on a safe platform.

We’ll have our mitts on one asap to give you the full run down and review of her and give the UK but for now here’s the general specs;

Width: 80cm (31.5 inches)

Weight: 29kg (64lb)

Load Capacity: 180kg (28 stone)

Features: G-Star fittings so you can place your rod holders where ever you like.

Warranty – 2 years

    Hi, I have just bought one of these kayaks and see on the pictures you have attached, one of the pictures has different foot pedals which looks like a better set up for the rudder.

    The setup you get with the kayak is rope for the rudder to the foot pedals and you have to slide the entire pedal forward but at the same time on the other pedal, take the pressure off it, so it can then slide back, this I don’t like, plus the rope stretch.

    Also you can’t stop the pedals coming off the rail if they slide back the way, unless you put in the clip that attach to the pedals which then you would only do if you where never to use the rudder and make the pedals a permanent fix.

    Can you tell me what rudder pedal system is used on the picture that is displaying on the site where it has the pedal flaps at the top of the pedals to then stear the rudder.

    Over all its a great kayak, but the rudder needs fixing, and you don’t get any manual.

    Holes on the top rectangle open lid that’s in the middle of the kayak, what attachments will fit them ?

    Many thanks

      Hi Nick, yeah the rudder has been redone and so have the pedals which we pointed out in our review of the kayak. The rope has gone and is replaced with cables in a sheath for better usage. There’s also talk of losing the “live bait well” and making it into a hatch into the hull. This will give access to the rudder cables as well as other stuff like transducers etc. The pedal clips have been redone or done away with and a stop end is now in place. All teething problems but all doable and is why we give our honest opinions in our reviews unlike others who take a kayak in and take pictures of it and post how good it is.
      The holes on the centre hatch are to house Scotty, Railblazer and Galaxy’s own brand of rod holders and other fittings. The brilliant track mount at the front will be changed to house all brands too, I’m told. Thanks for the feedback, as you can see it all helps to build a better kayak for us 🙂

      PS: I accidentally deleted a post/comment from a guy (maybe called Mike) who mentioned a motor on his Sturgeon or something? Can you please re post it as it was a sheer accident and I do apologise.

      Hi Nick, it was great to meet you and the many others interested in the sport. We’re really glad we made the effort now to spend the 2 days in the hall, giving our experiences and advising people on getting into kayak fishing. We really got it from all angles and we coped very well. I’m glad I took the Hobie as they don’t get enough showing and it really got a good going over with the mirage drive getting most interest. Get that Sturgeon wet and and christened with fish 😉 I’ll be fishing with you soon off Dunbar if if your up for it 🙂
