The Galaxy Black Marlin is our latest top of the range paddle powered fishing kayak that is designed for serious offshore kayaking. Its length and keel design make this kayak especially sea worthy and allow it to glide through waves easily and achieve impressive speeds making you reach your favourite fishing spots even faster.
Thanks to customer feedback the new Black Marlin kayak has some fantastic new features. This latest model comes with four rails on the sides of the kayak, which are ideal for placing your favourite accessories.
This is besides the various Star Portinserts placed in strategic positions to fit the wide range of accessories on offer from Railblaza.
You will find copper inserts at the front and back of the kayak for camera booms and flagwhips. We’ve also added two copper inserts behind the seat for vertically mounted rod holders and options for starports on the central hatch of the kayak. Finally, the 438 kayak has additional inserts placed in the transducer hole for easier installation of your transducer.
The new central storage hatch now includes direct access to the hull of the kayak which means easier storage of accessories and rods. This multipurpose rotatable hatch includes 19 copper inserts for attaching various mounts like a fish finder, as well as a moulded bottle holder and bungee support. By being rotatable, it allows you to keep any precious cargo, like electronic equipment, out of direct contact with any water when needed - which can make all the difference when paddling through a big set of waves. Then with one simple movement you rotate the hatch with all the equipment already attached and you are ready to go.
The rear of the kayak has also had some improvements made including increasing the flat storage space and adding a moulded anchorage for the ability to place an outboard motor.
We’ve also added two fixed rod holders just in front of your seat which is ideal for holding your rods for a variety of different activities.
The Galaxy Black Marlin fishing kayak comes with the raised Voyager seat that is incredibly comfortable and keeps you dry from any onboard water, making it a joy for longer sessions out on your favourite sea, lake or river.
With it’s 438cm length and 76cm width, this is a long but stable kayak that has a max carry load of up to 180kg. This is the longest and fastest paddle kayak in our range!
The Galaxy Black Marlin kayak also comes with two rear flush mount rod holders, two moulded storage rod holders and a rectangular swivel pro rod holder as standard. The kayak also comes with a transducer mount located at the bottom of the hull which easily connects to the multipurpose rotatable console through a scupper plug.
Finally, like all Galaxy Kayaks, the Black Marlin comes fully equipped with a seat and paddle so all you need is a lifejacket and you’re ready for your next adventure! We offer this model with the raised Voyager seat, but if you prefer paddling closer to the water, you can also purchase our Premium Comfort Seat which works just as well.

NEWImproved rear storage area: with moulded anchorage: to place a motor bracket and electric motor. The rear storage areas is complete with bungees which this area makes it easy to transport items on the kayak.
1 Black Marlin raised Voyager seat: this special high seat allows you to sit in a higher position which means you get extra protection from onboard water and a much more comfortable ride. It also comes with two wheels which can be added to it and converts the seat into a trolley - good for transporting small material with you (we don’t advise using it for your kayak). Paddling from a higher position improves your visibility on the water which may help with spotting fish from a distance.
1 multipurpose rotatable hatch: that includes 19 copper inserts for attaching various mounts, for rectangular based rod holders or platforms and now starports too. This is useful for attaching various material such as fish finders, GPS, rod holders, electronic supports, camera mounts or anything your creative mind can think of.. and on the other side you get a moulded bottle holder and bungee support.
1 transducer compartment: located in a scupper plug hole on the bottom of the kayak. This means you can fit the transducer under the kayak in direct contact with the water and easily pass cables through to your fish finder whilst keeping the unit nice and protected. The cables can also be passed through the swivel support arm so that all the cables are neatly tucked out of the way at all times. No DIY necessary - Galaxy Kayaks have already done this for you.
Copper inserts for transducer fitted underneath the kayak for easier installation of your transducer.
7 copper inserts specifically fitted to Starport accessories from Railblaza. One in the front, one in the rear and two directly behind the seat of the kayak. There are now three options for Starports added to the multipurpose rotatable hatch.
Rudder and pedal system: strong pedals and a smooth rudder system that allows for an increased angle of manoeuvrability and helps control the kayak in rough conditions. The Marlin’s system uses a protective sleeve on the rudder cable which means it is better protected from water damage and easier to replace if needed.
1 lifeline made from durable rope: this durable rope allows the paddler to connect items to it, and is useful for manoeuvres such as anchor positioning.
