The Marimba Angler is really all about speed. It has similar carrying capacity to the Kasai Angler, but it is faster. This makes it a great trawling kayak, and also ideal for fishing trips where you have to cover long distances.

To create the Marimba Angler, we took the standard Marimba which already has a bunch of features that make it a great boat for anglers, and added some angling-specific fittings to it.

Two flush-mounted Rod Holders are located behind the seat. Each rod holder has a Multifit positioned close by for securing your rods while paddling. Deck Rails allow you to personalise the deck by attaching items like a fish finder, GPS, camera or a selfie stick or on either side of the Sculpted Seat. An Anchor Trolley is also installed on the right side of the kayak.

Like the standard Marimba, the Marimba Angler has adjustable Footrests, a Paddle Rest, Bungee Cord straps to secure gear to the bow and a sizeable Tankwell with Crate-Holding Indents. The Bottle Holder is positioned behind the seat, in the middle of a larger pocket where a hydration bladder can be fixed. It also features the Scupper Venturis that make paddling long distances through choppy waters a pleasure.

To recap, if speed and trawling is your main priority, this is the boat for you. In addition, if you want one boat that you can use for fishing as well as fitness training, choose the Marimba Angler.

CHILDREN

While smaller children will find this kayak large to paddle and manoeuvre, it is suitable for older children and teens.

DOG FRIENDLY

The Tankwell is a great spot for your dog.

FLATWATER

On flatwater, the Marimba Angler is fast. It offers both speed and comfort for a full day out on the water.

TOURING

A great boat for touring with speed, comfort and sufficient storage space for multi-day trips.

FISHING

The Marimba Angler comes with two Rod Holders, which are positioned on either side of the rear 8″ Screw Hatch. These free up your hands to paddle, handle fish or to eat lunch. Deck Rails to the front and sides of the Sculpted Seat. Use these to customise your deck by attaching additional rod holders and gadgets like a fish finder, GPS device and camera. Crate-Holding Indents in the tankwell hug a crate or coolerbox to prevent it shifting. Use tiedowns, straps or bungee cord around the Multifits to secure your gear. Stay in position by attaching your anchor to the Anchor Trolley.

OCEAN

The Marimba Angler has the right pedigree to perform on open water and ocean. The speed, stability and manoeuvrability allows it o surf ocean swells as well.

OCEAN SURF

Although the Marimba Angler will get you out through the breakers and back in to shore in style, it wasn’t designed to cutback or ride tubes.

WHITEWATER

WHAT MAKES Vagabond DIFFERENT

Vagabond is a kayak brand whose partners have a collective 140 years of paddling experience between them. But this doesn’t make the brand any different to many other brands created and run by kayakers. It is how and why we do things that sets us apart.

Easy-to-use, high-performance kayaks

Vagabond focus is on making high-performance kayaks that are easy-to-use. We want recreational paddlers to enjoy paddling well-designed and crafted kayaks that are suited to their activities. This means that Vagabond boats have speed and stability. Indeed, Vagabond boats are not just blobs of plastic dished up to the inexperienced as a ‘recreational kayak’. No, no, no! Vagabond believe that for social, casual and infrequent paddlers to really enjoy the experience of paddling, that Vagabond kayaks must be good. Very good.

Vagabond kayaks are so good that experienced paddlers (and their children) will love taking these kayaks on dams, rivers and the sea. Fast, easy-to-use and a pleasure to paddle, Vagabond is your first choice when it comes to choosing a kayak.

Launching a new kayak company with 15 kayaks

Vagabond launched with 11 unique designs plus four angler versions – that’s unprecedented! Instead of launching with a boat or two and adding new models each year, Vagabond had the pleasure (and pressure!) of being able to design and develop a full range in one go. The range has a consistent appearance and key features – like the Paddle Cutaways – are common to all designs. Our designs are all new and as such there are no old versions.

The best fittings on every Vagabond kayak

The fittings are the best that Celliers Kruger has designed – and he has designed many drain plugs, hatches, thigh straps and attachment fittings during his career. In addition to those fittings commonly found on kayaks, Vagabond kayaks also feature Celliers’ innovative Multifit, Scupper Venturi and Footrest fittings.

We do not have different grades of fittings for different boats. We have only one type of each fitting; the very best design of the highest quality. Every boat gets the same treatment; from the Kwando (children’s sit-on-top) to the double-seater Mazowe and the Vubu whitewater creekboat. Nothing but the best for every model.

Vagbond kayaks suit a specific purpose or fill a gap in the market

Worldwide, there are dozens of kayak companies. Vagabond is not looking to just put more kayaks into stores. With more than two decades in the kayaking industry, Vagabond has identified gaps in the market and have created kayaks for specific purposes.

With this in mind, you won’t see Vagabond launching a ‘new’ model every year where the only change has been to the colour of the boat. Instead, new models will be carefully considered and created to respond to a need in the market.
