Old Town Predator PDL Kayak
The Ultimate Spearfishing and line fishing Kayak is here.
HANDS FREE PEDAL - POWERED FISHING - A real game changer for kayak fishing in New Zealand!
Introducing the most advanced pedal powered fishing machine of its kind. It gets you to the spot fast, and keeps you on the spot without paddling. With forward, reverse and agile maneuverability, you’ll experience precise boat control while your hands remain free to focus on fishing.
The removable pedal drive installs in seconds and tips up instantly for shallow water docking. The Predator PDL’s specially-designed hull combines the perfect balance of smooth pedal stroke speed and stand-up stability.
Old Town PDL Drive - This revolutionary pedal drive hits an impressive 5.5 MPH with a 10.3:1 gear ratio for efficient pedaling. It mounts into the Predator PDL in seconds and in shallow water it can tip up to its docking position in an instant.

Seat - Comfortable foldable/removable seat with underseat storage with enough space for a free dive wetsuit top plus more. Plus rear seat storage for your lunch or dive mask and accessories.

The Predator’s multiple mounting plates let you add all the greatest accessories. We have set ours up with a Lowrance fish finder with the transducer siliconed into the hull, but the Hummingbird transducer will fit the scuppers mount.
We are using Railblaza to fit extra fishing rod holders and dive flags.
We are using Rob Fort Series to keep our catch cool, protect our fish finder, diver and rods with covers, leashes and anchor systems.
