THE ZAMBEZI 10FT FEATURES

THE ZAMBEZI 10FT KAYAK

THE PERFECT ALL-ROUNDER. KAYAK

The Zambezi 10’ Kayak, designed for both fishermen and recreational paddlers, offers agility, speed, and versatility on both flat water and open seas. Crafted from durable single rotomolded 5mm Polyethylene, the Zambezi is built to withstand nature's elements and challenges.

Equipped with a rudder system, the Zambezi allows for easy steering through either the foot pedal system or the handheld control positioned on the side. The accessible hatch beneath the seat provides convenient maintenance access for the handheld steering mechanism.

The stern features a spacious tank well with cross-braced bungee cords to secure your gear. A toolbox in front of the raised aluminum seating serves as a mount for your fish finder and provides storage for a battery pack. The transducer can be mounted on brass inserts, protected by a scupper port with a 4mm cover. A line from the transducer can be run to the toolbox, keeping the deck neat and clutter-free.

For hands-free paddling, the toolbox can be replaced with a Fin drive, Prop drive or Vanhunks E-box, allowing you to focus on casting or capturing photos. Additional storage options include a bow hatch for anchoring or safety equipment, reinforced with cross-braced bungee cords.

Designed for fishing, the Zambezi features four integrated angled rod holders, two behind the seating for trolling lures, and two in front for lure changes or bottom fishing. The kayak incorporates ten scupper plug points for efficient drainage, ensuring a dry working area. Accessory rails on both sides offer versatility for mounting extra rod holders or navigational equipment.

Featuring multiple carry handles facilitates loading, moving, and launching, enhancing convenience and control. With its durability, agility, and comfort, the Zambezi 10ft kayak guarantees a memorable experience on the water.

FAQ

Q:

How fast is the kayak?

A:

The average paddling speed is around 4.2 km an hour. The design and shape of the kayak allow for the kayak to glide easily through the water which makes the Zambezi nice and nippy but due to its design being based around stability, the wider shape tends to slow the kayak slightly.

Q:

Would I be able to stand and fish on the Zambezi?

A:

The hull shape and design of the Zambezi allow for incredible balance so yes you can stand and fish. The wide shape of the kayak and deep channels under the kayak allows the water to flow easily through the kayak’s hull and this aids in creating added balance and stability.

Q:

I see there is a Fishfinder compartment, how would you install that?

A:

Under the kayak, there is a nylon slated protection plate that can be easily unscrewed. When you lift off the lid you will see four brass inserts and these are used to mount your transducer to the kayak. Once you have mounted the transducer you can run your cables up through the fish finder scupper port and onto the deck. Close the protection plate as this will ensure the longevity of the transducer beam. You can then decide when you want to mount your LCD screen and place your small lithium battery pack. A great place for the LCD is a rail mounting on the accessory rail as it is out of the way should you want to remove the Toolbox and replace it with one of the drive systems.

Q:

Can I adjust the seating forward and back?

A:

Yes, the seating is adjustable forward and back by unscrewing the seat slider clips and moving the seat into the required position, and then fastening the Slider clips to secure the seat into position.

Q:

Should I want to at some point upgrade my Zambezi what drive option could I use?

A:

Our drive box designs on the Fin Drive and the Prop Drive allow for both to fit perfectly into the Zambezi by simply unscrewing the toolbox clips and removing the toolbox. Then insert the drive you want to use and away you pedal. Please ensure that you fasten the drive box clips securely as if the clips and the box are not secure then this will greatly affect the performance of the drives.

Q:

Can I mount a motor on the back of the kayak?

A:

The design of the Zambezi doesn’t allow for a rear-mounted motor but you can use set up a Side motor mount which allows for the motor to be attached behind you by using the pre-molded bar mounting or easier still you can remove the Toolbox and install an E-box which fits in perfectly and this attachment and allows for an electric motor to be mounted directly in front of you for easy control.

Q:

Am I limited to where I can go on the Zambezi?

A:

No not at all, The Zambezi works well in all waterways from Rivers to open seas.

Q:

Can I beach launch with the Zambezi?

A:

That would depend entirely on the condition at the launch. If the swell is small and the water conditions calm then a beach launch is entirely possible but large swell and choppy conditions would greatly affect the Zambezi and make the launch uncomfortable.

Q:

Should I take out or leave the scupper plugs in?

A:

Due to its shape and the fact that it has high walls the scupper plug tubes are long and do not allow any water to return so taking them out would not be a problem at all. By removing the scuppers completely, you would guarantee quick drainage from the deck which would be a lot better than possible water damming.

Q:

Can I easily transport the kayak?

A:

The Zambezi is not a difficult kayak to move as it only weighs 28kgs and measures 10ft in length, however, the Zambezi has high walls and is quite wide which could add a little difficulty to the initial lift. There are however Dollys that can make your loading and offload much simpler. By installing the Kayak Load Roller on your rear window you can easily roll your Zambezi up onto your roof racks. The load roller is attached with two very strong suction cups to the rear window and once attached lift the nose of the kayak onto the roller and pick up the tail and slide the kayak onto your racks.

Q:

I don’t have solid roof racks, what can I do?

A:

The Zambezi is a lightweight kayak in comparison to a lot of other models so you can make use of temporary racks such as the Self Inflating racks or the Rubber racks. These are both perfect solutions but keep in mind that traveling faster than 100kms per hour or in high winds can affect the temporary racks’ ability to secure the kayak so keep to the speed limit and they will work perfectly.

Q:

I see there is a rudder system, can I connect the pedals and the hand rudder at the same time?

A:

Unfortunately, not. The rudder system is designed to work individually as if both were connected and both paddlers try to operate the steering at the same time it could badly damage the rudder system set up inside of the kayak.

CARE
  • Always store kayak in a shaded area and out of direct sunlight.
  • Do not hang your kayak through the handles.
  • Store your kayak on the side with the weight evenly displaced.
  • Do not tie or try to secure your kayak through the handles.
  • To avoid warping, ensure your kayak’s weight displacement is even during storage.
  • Do not over tighten your kayak, especially in hot conditions as this can distort your kayak’s shape.
