BEGGINER

MAUI 10

You are looking for a very stable kayak, a kayak to give you balance and confidence on the water. A kayak that let’s you venture beyond your limits! Maui 10 is built for you! 

It is spacious, wide and it’s hull design can carry weight up to 250 KG. Can be equipped with a lot of accessories including fishfinders and electric motors. While Maui 10 is a one-seater pedal fishing kayak and designed to carry one person only, we have seen users carry two or even 3 people on top! But as always, we do not recommend overloading the kayak, use it wisely and exactly for the purpose it was designed for. 

You are looking at the most stable kayak in the world!

EXPERIENCED

These kayaks are meant to be used by more experienced kayakers, those who have knowledge of how to balance a kayak, kayak recovery, and a bit of maintenance. These kayaks are faster and a bit more technical than the rest. 

MAUI 12

This is the all-rounder! The kayak has features like no other. Liked by experienced kayak fishermen and has the ability to do everything. It is fast, wide, comfortable and equipped with everything a fisherman would need. It is less stable than other kayaks in the beginner category but that is because of the hull design and the need for speed. 

Whether you are trolling, jigging, casting or live-baiting. This is the ultimate fishing kayak for you. Top seller at Maui Kayak Shop too. 

This pedal fishing kayak can carry up to 250kg and can be upgraded with many types of accessories. 

Can be carried on top of your car but a trailer would be a more convenient way to do it.
