Many kayak manufactures are adding motors to their kayaks to satisfy anglers looking for the ease and accessibility of motor power in a small, light and low-profile craft. French kayak manufacture, RTM has added a light and compact Torqueedo motor to its sleek Abaco 13 kayak. The motor runs off a lithium-ion battery that is the size of a cereal box and weighs less than 10 pounds. The motor attaches to a bracket on the back of the boat and is controled with a remote that displays speed, charge and even GPS location that connects with a smartphone. Direction is controlled with foot pegs and the motor is deployed with cables on either side of the boat. For 2016, RTM added more fish-friendly features to the Abaco. A center hatch and gear pockets offer anglers more storage. A large hatch and flushmount rodholders round-out the fishing package. The boat will travel over six-miles-per-hour and the battery will power the motor for over eight hours. This is possibly the sportiest motor kayak on the market, we can’t wait to take it for a test drive.
