Fast, maneuverable, stable, and heaps of fun. The shad 10’4ft kayak is a kayak ahead of its time, with all its attributes molded into an excellent craft for the avid fisherman and the relaxed paddler who wants to take in the sights.


Fin, Propeller, or Motor Drive Compatible 

- The Shad is fitted with a removable Tool Pod
- Remove the tool pod and you can fit a fin drive, transforming your Kayak in a few easy steps.
- Should you wish to add a propeller drive instead, not a problem; the Shad is fully compatible with Fin Drive or Propeller Drive. You have multiple upgrade options in one Kayak.
- The Shad even have inserts for an electric motor on the Kayak’s stern should you decide to add an electric motor.

    Designed For Stability & Speed

    - Flat bottom with Pontoon Hull keeps the Shad Kayak on an even keel and therefore allows confidence to sit or even stand easily.
    - Shape and sleek lines in the hull design allow for much-needed speed and easy maneuverability.
    - Double Pontoon Hull allows the easy flow of water through the channels, increasing traction and speed.

      Foot or Hand Control Rudder System 

      - Easily interchangeable adjustable foot control or hand-controlled rudder system. 
      - Deep adjustable rudder provides great direct action and limits drift therefore keeping the speed of the Kayak.
      - Rudder blades are compatible with the Bixpy motor.

        Plenty of Storage Space 

        - Large equipment hatch at the Kayak’s bow.
        - Round hatch behind the paddler.
        - Large Tank-Well in the stern fitted with bungee cords to secure your load.

          Adjustable Seating 

          - Raised deluxe aluminum seating gives you a slightly elevated approach that assists with paddling and visibility and keeps you dry should there be excess water in the craft.
          - The seating is adjustable to the front or the back and runs on a track system.

            Fishing Rod Holders 

            - Four embedded angled rod holders to assist with storage and rod positioning.
            - Three accessory rails can take extra fishing rod holders, accessories, or a better still to mount your fishfinder.
            - Fish Finder can be mounted to the Shad easily as there is spacing built into the Kayak’s hull for a transducer and cabling to run comfortably.
            - The transducer plate protects your transducer and under the transducer plate, you will find pre-assembled inserts to secure your transducer.


              Overall, the Shad is a great kayak on both flat water, lakes, rivers, and smooth sea conditions. Its overall design will keep you comfortable enough to stay out fishing for hours!

                LOVE MY SHAD

                I Love my new Vanhunks shad pedal drive kayak- I just wish it had arrived with instructions for installing the rudder and fin drive, I searched online and had trouble finding instructions to know if I installed it all correctly.
