Fisherman 12

HDPE polyethylene

Designer: Björn Thomasson

Product Developer: Len Ystmark


The Fisherman 12 is an efficient platform for fishing, hunting, diving, bird-watching, photographing or painting. More than that - it is comfortable to stay out all day, fast and nimble to get you there in style and safe to keep you out of trouble.
The fully developed tunnel hull offers some interesting advantages for a hybrid canoe-kayak: foremost in stability, speed and tracking. Since the length-width ratio is an important part in the speed equation, two narrow hulls give a better top speed than one wide for the same displacement. Not that speed is top priority for a wide fishing/recreation canoe, but once in a while a little speed will be appreciated. Two narrow hulls also track better than one without compromising the superb maneuverability of the short hull. This, together with the speed advantage makes paddling longer distances a more enjoyable task than normally in this kind of craft.
