The compromise when trying to offer greater stability with a wider kayak is more drag and less efficiency but the Profish GT has overcome this with the cleaver hull design. At 82cm wide, reverse chinned hull and low set seat position Viking have achieved the same stability as wider kayaks but without compromising efficiency.
The flattened foot wells and higher volume nose means you can comfortably stand to sight cast or throw a cast net. The flatter hull draws less water allowing the kayak to paddle over shallower waters and At 3.6m long with a small amount of rocker its super-efficient to maneuver in skinny water or when repositioning for a cast.
