Here’s why the ePropulsion Vaquita Propeller is ideal for recreational kayakers on a budget
Heaps of Fun
The ePropulsion Vaquita Propeller is great for:
- having heaps of fun!
- getting you home after kayak fishing
- paddling against wind and/or tide
- taking a break on a multi-day kayak expedition
Lightweight and Portable
The Vaquita Propeller (including the battery) weighs only 4kg and fits snugly into a customised storage bag (sold separately).
Or simply keep it in the sturdy box it comes in – 50 x 20 x 30cm.
NOTE – the propeller will add about 20cm to your draft – be careful in shallow water.
Compatible with Most Kayaks and SUPs
The deep fin that comes with the Island Voyage 2 kayak improves the strait tracking of the kayak.
Note that the fin does not have to be installed if you are paddling in shallow water.
It features 8 speeds forward, a LED indicator, and emergency stop function.
You will find it easy to use.
The elastic wristband is skin-friendly and comfortable to wear for hours.
The propeller comes with a compact 324 watt lithium-ion battery.
You get 70 minutes at full speed or 5 hours at low speed.
The 4 LED indicator lights keep you informed of the real-time status of the battery.
With all kinds of built-in sensors, Vaquita stops right away if you capsize or fall out of your kayak.
