While our Vanhunks Tarpon is still a single sit-on-top fishing kayak suitable for beginner, intermediate, and advanced paddlers, we’ve taken this vessel and given it several deluxe upgrades!
We’ve kept all the favorites from the original Tarpon, and added definite creature comforts to the Tarpon 2.
The first changes you’d notice when comparing the two is that, where the first Tarpon had two small round storage hatches, as well as the 50cmx25cm oval hatch at the bow, Tarpon 2 now sports more significant rectangle storage hatches measuring 35cmx25cm in the round hatches’ places.
