First Look at Native Watercraft’s Biyak Fishing Catamaran

Native Watercraft has taken on the development of the Biyak catamaran. The boat features twin pontoons held together with a metal frame. The pontoons can be moved in and out to improve paddling speed or stability depending on the need. Back at the launch, collapse the pontoons to load the boat in the back of a pick-up truck. Or quickly remove the frame and stack the parts in an SUV. Native added a high-low seat with storage compartment. The final version of Biyak will accept an electric or gas motor. Storage hatches in the pontoons will accept camping gear.

“Thank God my dad wasn’t a podiatrist,” jokes Ric about following in the footsteps of a famous outdoor writer. After graduating from Radford University and serving two years in Russia with the Peace Corps, Ric returned to Virginia Beach and started writing for The Fisherman magazine, where his dad was editor. When the kayak fishing scene exploded, Ric was among the first to get onboard. His 2007 book, The Complete Kayak Fisherman is one of the first tomes to introduce anglers to paddle fishing and hundreds of articles and seminars have brought countless anglers into the fold. When he’s not chasing every fish that swims, Ric teaches English at a school for at-risk teens.
