Perception Pescador Pilot 12.0 Kayak Review
The Perception Pescador Pilot 12.0 is the newest member to the Pescador family of kayaks that also includes the Pescador Pro 12.0 and the original Pescador 12.0. The Pilot 12.0 offers Perception’s very own pedal driven system that has been engineered to offer paddlers all day hands-free time on the water!
The Pilot Drive system is designed with a finely tuned gear ratio for effortless use and features Perception’s Turbo Flaps to minimize noise and turbulence while pedaling. The quick key system makes lowering and raising to zero draft a breeze for easy launching and loading or when entering shallow water. The Pilot Drive also provides forward and reverse functions, while the rudder system is steered by hand with its conveniently located low profile control knob.
Along with the Pilot Drive system, the Perception Pescador Pilot 12.0 comes packed to the gills with fishing features and is fully outfitted ‘out of the box’. Included for anglers at no extra charge are four flush-mount rod holders, two YakAttack accessory rails, two consoles for electronics, and transducer scupper hole for a fish finder. For the everyday paddler, the Pilot 12.0 features a comfortable Captain’s Chair mounted on gear tracks with tension knobs for easy, on-the-fly adjustment. Ample storage is offered with large tankwells bow and stern and three mini hatches
Like its siblings, the Perception Pescador Pilot 12.0 provides exceptional initial stability with its generous width, while the flat foredeck allows you to stand confidently. The increased depth and overall volume of the boat increase its fit range for paddlers of all sizes and the user-friendly design make it a great choice for any skill level.
