Jackson Kayaks introduced a new brand today Blue Sky Boatworks and a new boat, the 360 Angler. With its catamaran design and 360 degree captains chair, this boat is clearly one of a kind. The 360 Angler has 34 square feet of standing area, and the catamarans make it extremely stable. There is a “front porch” and “back porch” so you can bring all your gear but still have room for your best furry friend to ride. The flex drive system, much like the drive in the Coosa FD and Cruise FD kayaks, is removable so you can insert a battery powered motor. It comes with a dual rudder system and a 10 foot stake, so you can maneuver easily and hold your spot.
This is the prototype, but the company expects to be shipping around March, 2018. Blue Sky and Jackson Kayaks could change the kayak market with this innovative design.
The mount on the back is powerpole combatible.
