The Classic line does not share a common design, but a common lineage. The boats in this category are all solid recreational kayaks with features that have made Ocean Kayak a leader in the industry for 20+ years. They are simple sit-on-top kayaks that do a fantastic job of getting paddlers on the water, with each slightly geared towards a particular condition.
The Malibu Two family is designed for fun on the water. They are simple, lightweight tandems offering the essentials to get on the water, with plenty of options to customize the kayak for your preferences.
The Malibu Pedal is perfect for paddlers looking for a solid, simple pedal-driven kayak that the whole family can use, or that can handle the occasional fishing trip. It offers the perfect intersection of a durable drive, comfortable seat, and stellar design.
The Prowler family has changed and branched off many times over the years, what remains are two kayaks designed for very different conditions, but designed equally well for them. The Big Game 2 is a fishing kayak with rock solid stability, where the Prowler 13’ Angler is a sleek fishing kayak that is an absolute joy to paddle when you don’t have a rod in hand.
The Trident family from Ocean Kayak have been a strong presence in the fishing kayak market for years, and they have further cement their claim to that spot with this latest iteration. The current Trident maintains the all-water versatility they are world-renowned for, but add a stellar new ACS2 seating system, improved rigging options, and refined storage management.
The Venus is designed as a lightweight, affordable option for women to get on the water. The Venus is slimmed down to keep the weight low, without sacrificing features or comfort. Ocean Kayak researched extensively the most common places people reach to when trying to let a kayak on their car, and put a handle there, making this one of the easiest kayaks to load.
