Perception Triumph 13 Touring Sit on Top Kayak Review



hi guys I'm Henry from shore and today we're gonna have a quick run-through of the perception triumph 13 single man touring sit on top kayak so this boat is made by perception down and up field near Brighton it really is designed to be the next level in sit on top so obviously we've got buttocks like this behind us which is your more sort of shorter distant beach toys and then this is obviously for going that bit further for the guys you don't want to be in a sitting kayak but still want to do the distance it's really designed for those sort of customers so the boat is 13 foot long or 4 meters 10 it weighs 27 kilos so again the extra length that's not a bit of weight onto it but it's still you know one man can pick up on their own it's not too heavy and obviously you can get trolley options as I say it's really designed for that distance paddling having a good time on the water and just going that a little bit further maybe you in a camping would be a bit of a fishing really has all the options for that so if we start at the front of the boat you'll see it's got a very splayed bow so the bow at the Front's cut up which allows it to cut through the water very quickly and couple that with the channels on the bottom it really allows you to move in a straight line very efficiently if you're going to be doing a lot further paddling you may want to look at fitting it with a rudder kit and again just allows you to keep on that straight line as you're paddling through and it's not unheard of to do 20 miles on one of these in a day they really are that efficient as we go through the deck you notice the boat has some big hatches it's got one big hatch at the front that's for your sort of dry stuff you want to put it in a dry bag it does go through to the whole boat but it's a really lot of good space in there that allows you lots of you know all the bits you're going to need when you're on the water as you come back through to the sort of foot rest area there's a lot of fixing mounts so you can see there's a big fixing mount in the center here it's designed for fitting a rod holder on to or some adaptors your fish find your GPS your mobile phone holder anything you want your GoPro if required and then we get to the foot rest area foot rest area is really has a lot of variation a lot of different foot points for it and if you feel that it's not perfect for you it can be retrofitted with fully adjustable foot holders so that floor allows you to get it just perfect for you and also if you're using a rudder system this can also be retrofitted into the boat in the middle of the deck we have a water bottle holder for when you're on the water and a little central hatch here this little hatch is designed specifically to put your mobile phone your wallet or anything you need to get to in a hurry while on the water and again really nice and in between your legs nice and easy to access just next to that there is a slight dimple in the seat and this is actually like a child's jump seat they call it so if you're gonna be bringing a child maybe up to the age of 3 or 4 out with you on the water they can sit in this little spot here a little groove in between your legs and you can go paddling that a little bit further with them great if you sort of want a boat to be able to get the kids on the water to start as they get into it but yeah so about our position about three or four we reckon in there any bigger they start getting a bit tight but in the sort of the middle of the boat you can see it's got two nicely built-in handles here these are fully made of plastic and again don't come off really good for locking the boat up if you're gonna be leaving it on top of your car or under a garage or something like that through the summer months really just allows you to look everything together and keep it nice and secure the boat is currently fitted with our upgraded deluxe backrest that has a higher back than other options on the market the idea with this is that if you're going to be on the water for quite a long time several hours you probably going to want the most more comfortable thing again we offer this as a package on short of credit UK or in the shop here and yeah it fits in beautifully and really does give you more support when you're on the water finally at the rear you've obviously got some fishing rod holder points again can be retrofitted fish fishing it's a really good price point UK aimed fishing boat so therefore it can do the distance and you can't fish from it at the same time and finally have the big bungee area at the back this is going to be great if you're going to be doing some kayak Camping's you're going to be taking a camping kit with you alternatively if you're going to be putting your trolley in when you're on the water or if you're getting is sort of a family toy that you know is going to be used properly sometimes as well this is a great place if the kids want to put their mates on the back and just want to go for a paddle round very close to the shore yeah so this is really designed to be the touring sit on top you can look at sitting options but if you're not really feeling confident enough or you do want to go that bit further this is the boat for you we've shipped these all around the country the Hebrides is a big place for these when they're going for big tours around Scotland and customers yeah the feedback is really really positive on them for that so as you can see we're currently based here in our showroom which is based near turista we have all the boats here on display for you to sit in we also have some to test as well so you can connect to get out on the water we're only 100 metres from the water here and get out alternatively you can
