Perception Kayaks Pescador Pilot 12.0

The Pescador Pilot 12.0 from Perception Kayaks is the pedal driven model of the series that also includes the Pescador 12.0 and the Pescador Pro 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—it's designed with a finely tuned gear ratio for effortless use forward and reverse, while the rudder system is controlled by hand with a low profile knob. 

Turbo flaps minimize noise and turbulence while pedaling, and the quick key system makes lowering and raising the drive a breeze when launching and loading or entering shallow water. 

The Pescador Pilot 12.0 comes packed to the gills with fishing features and fully outfitted ‘out of the box’—along with the pedal drive and rudder system, you get four flush-mount rod holders, two YakAttack accessory rails, two consoles for electronics, and transducer scupper hole for a fish finder!  

For on-water comfort, the Pilot 12.0 features a high-backed 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 rear mini hatch—the Wilderness Systems Kayak Krate or Perception's own Splash Kayak Crate are designed to fit securely in the stern tankwell.

At 33.75" wide, the Pilot 12.0 boasts exceptional stability, while the flat foredeck allows you to stand confidently when the pedal drive is stowed.

The ample 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.
