Owning a fishing kayak has never been easier. We're proud to present the brand new Point 65 KingFisher, the world's first modular trimaran fishing kayak.
We wanted to make owning a fishing kayak easy. A kayak that can take you anywhere - regardless of how much space or strength you have to store and carry it. A kayak that’s as easy to handle outside the water as it is on it.
Modular kayaks can go places most kayaks can’t. The two halves of the KingFisher snap apart in seconds and easily fit into your car, apartment or even as checked-in luggage on an airplane. Plus, half a kayak is twice as easy to carry! One person can easily load, unload and assemble the KingFisher. No roof-racks or storage space? No problem!
The KingFisher’s flexibility doesn’t stop with its modular design. You have the choice of using your legs, arms, or motor to get where you want to go. The slender hull design makes for smooth, effortless paddle strokes if you want to go the old-fashioned route. The optional Impulse Drive is ready and waiting when you need your hands free, using the power of your legs to propel you forward or backward. Steering is a breeze with our handy rudder controls and you can fit almost any motor to the KingFisher's aft deck.
A fishing kayak that still feels like a kayak. This beautifully designed boat melts into the natural surroundings. No disturbing wake, no loud noises or smelly motor fumes. Feel relaxed as you paddle, sit, stand, and fish. All with complete confidence in the KingFisher to support your weight and movements.
With multiple settings & heights, the Game Chair adjusts to you - not the other way round. Perfect for when you’re patiently waiting for the next bite, setting up your line, or wrangling your latest catch!
This boat is decked out with everything you need to have the best possible fishing experience. Multiple Rod Parks, super-comfy adjustable Game Chair, two spacious storage hatches and plenty of compatible attachment rails and bars for anything else you want to add on top.
All of our kayaks are made from high quality, durable, moulded HTP plastics free from harmful chemicals and dyes. The material used is 100% recyclable, and all manufacturing remnants (like cut out hatches) are recycled. We put every model through extensive durability testing to make a product that will last through many adventures. And, thanks to our 'modular' spare parts design system, if any piece gets damaged or broken, you can easily replace an individual part instead of scrapping your entire kayak.
When designing the KingFisher, we set out to tackle the biggest challenges of owning a fishing kayak.
When kayak fishing, you often need your arms and hands free for fishing. The optional ImpulseDrive easily pops into its slot in the KingFisher kayak and effectively propels you forward and backward using leg power. The pedal drive unit is extremely light-weight and is one of the few pedal-driven units on the market that can be driven both forward - and in reverse. With your largest muscle group in play, kayak fishing becomes easier and more efficient than ever.
The Impulse Drive is a revolutionary pedal-drive system designed around a very simple premise: if a product is designed to be used in the water it should be 100% corrosion proof. Featuring a high performance encased shaft drive design, that is immune to water damage, the Impulse Drive will not corrode or degrade in water. Not only does this design dramatically reduce wear but it also provides a high performance system that is 100% user serviceable. The Impulse Drive is incredibly versatile for the retailer and end user.
The Trimaran hull is the secret to the the KingFisher's stability, speed and lightweight design. Trimarans evoke a vision of stability. A conventional monohull must balance conflicting needs of resistance and stability. You want a narrow, skinny hull to reduce resistance and paddling effort, but you need a wide hull to maintain vessel stability and keep the kayak upright. The trimaran separates these two design requirements by using three strategically-placed hulls to maximize stability but keep the overall width to a minimum.
Primarily, trimarans deliver stability in a very power efficient package.
In order to maintain the same stability in a regular monohull kayak, the hull width must be wider. A wider hull makes the kayak awkward and cumbersome to paddle, adds extra weight, and significantly decreases portability.
Featuring one of the most comfortable seats on the kayak fishing market, the KingFisher Game Chair offers a variety of settings to give you a comfortable and effective paddling position. The super comfy KingFisher Game Chair, combined with the kayak´s world-class stability, speed, and logical accessory positioning, makes it a serious fishing machine in all water types.
Multiple marine grade, aluminum attachment rails are fitted along the KingFisher allowing for maximum flexibility for how you would like to customize your kayak. The front, middle and rear sections have rails along both sides, and can fit RAM, Scotty, or other accessories securely.
Flush-mounted rod holders are located on either side of the Kingfisher, with integrated rod-holder recesses and rod-tip protectors. You can relax knowing your rods will be held in place while you paddle, pedal or motor through the water.
The KingFisher has well-placed, generous storage space for all your gear. Below the Game Chair, you'll find space for your tackle boxes for easy access. There are front and rear hatches with a removable liner for equipment, battery packs, etc. There is also a rear cargo area with secure bungees and floor-mounted aluminum rails.
The super efficient, hand-controlled twin rudders help you maneuver your KingFisher with ease and precision. The dual steering handles with fingertip control are located on either side of the Game Chair, and the rudders can be locked in place to give you more options for steering.

Since 1996, we've been passionate about designing kayaks and redefining the kayak adventure. Point 65 is a family business, run by a close-knit team in our Stockholm, Sweden HQ. We're proud of our Scandinavian roots and take inspiration from both the idyllic natural surroundings and the innovative design culture. In fact, Point 65 is named after the co-ordinates of the island of Rönnskär, a magical place in the North of Sweden featuring an iconic lighthouse looking out over an archipelago of hundreds of small islands.
We've designed & developed over 30 kayaks, and you also might recognize our brand of Point 65 Boblbee hardshell, impact protective backpacks.
