 Product Description and Specs

Designed with professional kayak anglers, the Ocean Kayak Trident Ultra 4.3 sets the new standard in fishing kayaks for others to follow. A shorter and lighter version of the Trident Ultra 4.7, the 4.3 is easier to handle off the water, and is much faster than expected for a boat its size. The 2014 model now features imperial thread patterns in place of metric. The rudder mount was redesigned to fit the Necky style rudders. The Ultra 4.3 features raised angler's seating and provides a faster draining seating deck and a well proportioned foot area that is sure to impress. Four flush-mounted rod holders are positioned around the seat along with two more rod holders in the rear. The Trident Ultra 4.3 features Ocean Kayak's improved multi-functional reversible hatch cover that includes attachment points for fish finders and other accessories and has the unique ability to rotate 180 degrees along a pivot point to "flip" to shield and protect valuable electronics in rough surf conditions. The large tank well in the stern with an extra 5 inch hatch is perfect for optional accessories such as the Ice Box Storge Pod. Built-in carry handles, paddle keepers, and a bottle holder are standard and there is a replaceable wear strip on the tail.

• Designed by professional anglers with an efficient hull and superior rigging - rudder can be fitted
• Redesigned raised cockpit seating for faster draining deck - Comfortable seating inspired by the Necky Vector
• Four flush-mounted rod holders with two more rod holders the the rear, paddle keeper, and bottle holder
• Front Click Seal hatch, innovative center console, and large rear tank well provide plenty of storage options.
• Built-in carry handles, paddle keeper, bottle holder, and replaceable wear strip in the tail.

This is my first kayak, and I wanted something that I could take in the ocean and fish. I did that for the first time a couple of weeks ago. The boat handled great, and I felt very comfortable in it. A friend, who went with me, was pointing out all the features of the boat that I didn't notice. He felt I got a very well thought out boat by people who knew what they were doing in creating this. I purchased a rudder too. When the wind came up, I was able to steer the boat with the rudder, and the wind took me all the way across a bay to the boat ramp without having to paddle. The boat is not too heavy for one person to lift and get on to a cart. I hang it out of the back of my truck that has a frame coming from the trailer hitch to hold part of the boat up. I'm now looking at adding a sail to the boat. I'm glad I purchased this.

I purchased my Ultra 4.3 from ACK when the model was first introduced. It has now made close to a hundred fishing and exploring trips to the marshes. Have yet to use it off-shore, but that is not why I wanted it. The 4.3 is lighter weight than most similar size kayaks making it easy to load and unload off the sides of roads where I usually launch. The deck lay out and center storage were apparently planned just for me. I like that the large center storage hatch opens to a fully enclosed, water tight compartment that will not allow water into the hull. Never had ANY water inside l from any hatches. The hull is quiet and faster than I would expect for a 14,' yet is stable enough to stand and fish, or just stretch my legs occasionally. Pre-set/molded in metal threaded inserts are EVERYWHERE! In all my rigging I have yet to have reason to drill any holes for attaching anchor trolleys, fish finders or any other hardware. As for the fish finder, the 4.3 is manufactured with the assumption that the fisherman will indeed be installing one and everything is built in and ready,

Q: Right behind the seat, in the forward wall of the tank well there appears to be a round spot to add a round hatch. Am I seeing that right? I'm wondering about having additional access to the inside rear of the boat.
A: That indented spot is meant for adding a storage hatch lid, but it is a pretty difficult install. You may want to have it done at a local shop.

Q: How does this kayak compare to the Necky Vector 14 which has been discontinued (bummer). I have the Vector 13 and love it, but sometimes wish I had gotten the 14 for more gear hauling room for multi-day kayaking trips. If I wanted to go longer, this kayak looks like a good option.
A: The Ultra 4.3 was designed for the offshore fisherman in mind. It features a efficient and fast hull with plenty or storage for all your gear. It is not as light and "fast" (depends on so many factors as the Vector but it is a close relative.
