The Murray Fishing


The Murray is the result of years of testing and planning, in consultation with pro fishing reporters, recreational fishing industry leaders and our own keen and dedicated fishing staff – all of whom gave us their ultimate fishing kayak wish list. Designed with a unique shallow draft, the Murray provides excellent tracking and manoeuvrability.

The Murray Fishing provides everything that a fisherman needs, in the place that you need it. If a feature doesn’t add to the fishing experience, it’s not on The Murray Fishing.

The hull of the boat was extensively designed, resulting in a kayak that produces speed as fast as a boat a metre longer, but with uncompromised tracking. It has manoeuvrability that lets you fish in amongst snags in all sorts of river situations, to a level that has not been experienced before.

Dave Brace caught a 130cm barramundi on a Safari H2O Murray Fishing kayakThe Murray Fishing story:

We know a lot of keen fisherman, and paddling is not their first priority, fishing is. Through ongoing discussions with them, we got to understand what they saw as the perfect boat and the wish list evolved as to what the boat should be like, and what it should include.

That sowed the seed for the designing and inventing of the Murray Fishing kayak. Consultation with professional reporters and industry experts, along with our uncompromised approach to hull design, resulted in what we have today.

The boat needed to be so nice to paddle, so easy to use, and easy to load and unload in order for it to be a success.

Dan Lacey, our chief pattern maker, who is a very keen fisherman and an accomplished paddler, made it his passion and goal to produce a boat from the perfect wish list. He used it as an opportunity to build something that he knew he would want to use himself.


What’s in a name?

The Murray River is Australia’s longest river, and everyone is trying to catch the Murray Cod. It was a logical name. It’s a famous river and a famous fish, and we hope the boat lives up to its name.
