The Galaxy Alborán sit on top kayak has been designed for the dedicated fisherman amongst us and is capable of going further offshore thanks to its aerodynamic design and comfortable build. This model is our top of the line fishing kayak and comes fully equipped to land your next big catch! It is equally comfortable as a sea kayak or lake and river kayak.
The Alborán is Galaxy Kayaks’ longest model at just over 409cm length, which allows it to glide through waves more easily and makes it suitable for a wider array of conditions. The kayak is also slightly wider and the angles of the hull have been designed flatter than other kayaks to maximise stability, a key quality for fishing.
The result is Galaxy Kayaks’ premium fishing model that comes with all the necessary equipment to start fishing. This includes two front and two rear flush mount rod holders and a swivel pro rod holder that allows maximum movement as standard. More still, the Alborán comes with various anchor points and two G star mounts in key positions that allow the use of Galaxy Kayaks accessories and those of other brands, including GPS holders and fish finders, so you can choose your preferred setup.
The Galaxy Alborán kayak also comes with a tackle box and bait-well found within its three storage compartments. Galaxy Kayaks’ bait-well comes with the option to switch from a wet or dry setup (by selecting the appropriate scupper plug), so you can pursue your favourite fishing style. From jigging to trolling and live bait, this sit on top kayak allows you to achieve your maximum potential while kayak fishing.
The Alborán comes with an identification plaque and serial number. It is fully equipped with various accessories (see below) including a premium seat and a paddle so all you need is a lifejacket, and you are ready for your next adventure!
New 2015 Features
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. No DIY necessary - Galaxy Kayaks have already done this for you, meaning you can spend more time out on the water.
1 lifeline made from durable rope: this durable rope allows fisherman to connect items to it, and is useful for manoeuvres such as anchor positioning. The new rope, versus the previous elastic, also improves manoeuvrability of the kayak if the worst happens and you need to use it as a lifeline.
Improved rudder and pedal system: the new model comes with stronger pedals and a smoother rudder system that allows for an increased angle of manoeuvre and helps control the kayak in rough conditions. Additionally, there is now a new wire protective sleeve on the rudder cable which means it is better protected from water damage and easier to replace.
Improved waterline: the rear tank of the kayak has been raised by 5cm and the anchor storage has been replaced, which reduces water retention in this section during rough conditions and improves its draining ability. Our customer research revealed that many fishermen use a box storage setup in the rear of their kayaks, meaning the new tank also improves the stability of using such a storage system.
2 silicone pockets: for storing any small items close to hand. Made from durable silicone and specially designed to help avoid tangling of hooks or other small items.
2 paddle clips: to safely store your paddle when not in use.
2 anchor cleats: to use as a tie off point, an anchor support or to tie other items to your kayak
2 G Star mounts: in a universal standard for adding any G Star compatible accessories and those of other brands.
1 drainage plug: now located in the front of the kayak to further improve its ability to completely drain any bilge water that has been absorbed into the hull after use.
Identification plaque: now available on this model
Stainless steel screws: have been improved to the highest marine grade steel available
Improved hatch seals: have been made more flexible so that you now get an even better fit
Plus all the features that come with the Alborán:
1 central storage hatch: comes with option to use as live bait-well for either a wet or dry setup (just choose whether to use scupper plug) and with hermetic seal.
1 large front storage hatch: for general storage, complete with hermetic seal.
1 rectangular central storage hatch: for smaller items and complete with fish measuring scale on top and hermetic seals.
1 splash bag: that comes within the hatch. Note, we recommend storing any fragile items, such as mobile phones, in dedicated waterproof containers (see NRS products) as humidity and condensation can still get within the splash bag
7 drainage points: located around the kayak, allowing you to choose where to drain water whilst maintaining desired areas dry.
7 scupper plugs: made from high quality rubber. Insert and remove when required for self-drainage system to activate.
1 large rear storage area: complete with bungees, this area makes it easy to transport items on the kayak.
