The Galaxy Alborán fishing kayak comes fully equipped to land your next big catch!
The Galaxy Alborán sit on top kayak has been designed for the dedicated fisherman amongst us and is capable of going further offshore thanks to its aerodynamic design and comfortable build. This model comes fully equipped to land your next big catch! It is equally comfortable as a sea kayak or lake and river kayak.
The Alborán measures 409cm in length, which allows it to glide through waves more easily and makes it suitable for a wide array of conditions. The kayak is also slightly wider and the angles of the hull have been designed flatter than other kayaks to maximise stability, a key quality for fishing.
This kayak has been thought out so that every kayak fisherman can easily adapt their kayak to any fishing combination without ever drilling into the hull.
The newest Alborán kayak comes with eight copper inserts strategically placed around your kayak. One at the front, one at the back, two on either side of the paddler and two directly in front of the paddler. These inserts allow for easy and drill free installation of popular and even mandatory accessories (in certain regions), like the Railblaza Visibility Kit II or Flagwhipat the rear of the kayak, Cameraboom or Camera Mount in the front of the kayak, and up to three Tracportswhich fit perfectly in front and on either side of the kayak.
These new lateral inserts are also ideal for the placement of rod holders and fishfinders, depending on your kayak fishing preference. Finally, if you’re interested in sailing on your kayak then these side supports are designed for the attachment of sails and keels when using a kayak sail system like the Vela Eola.
The latest model comes with three original Railblaza Starports as standard so that you can begin to accessorise your kayak with ease.
The Alborán kayak also comes with a transducer compartment found under the kayak and placed inside a scupper plug hole for hassle free transducer installations. Although this is a longer kayak, the Alborán comes with a rudder and pedal system which helps manoeuvre the kayak with ease.
The result is one of Galaxy Kayaks’ premium fishing models that comes with all the necessary equipment to start fishing. This includes two rear flush mount rod holders and a Railblaza Rod Holder R that allows maximum mobility as standard.
The Galaxy Alborán kayak also comes with a tackle box and bait-well found within its three storage compartments. Galaxy Kayaks’ bait-well comes with the option to switch from a wet or dry setup (by selecting the appropriate scupper plug), so you can pursue your favourite fishing style. From jigging to trolling, spinning and live bait, this sit on top kayak allows you to achieve your maximum potential while kayak fishing.
Safety is always important and for that reason our Alborán kayak comes with a durable lifeline made of rope. This rope also allows fisherman to connect items to it, and is useful for manoeuvres such as anchor positioning.
Like all Galaxy Kayaks, the Alborán comes with our three year guarantee. This model is also CE certified (Conformité Européenne) and comes with an identification plaque and serial number. It is fully equipped with various accessories (read below) including a premium seat and a paddle so all you need is a lifejacket, and you are ready for your next adventure!

Why choose Galaxy Kayaks?
This Kayak Includes:
NEW: 3 Railblaza Starports: for the addition of any Railblaza accessory
NEW: 8 copper inserts: for safe and hassle free insertion of accessories into the hull of your kayak such as Railblaza Starports. No drilling into your kayak will be necessary. One insert has been placed at the rear of the kayak for the addition of safety equipment like the RailBlaza Flagwhipusing a Sideport. Another insert was placed in the front of the kayak for accessories like the RailBlaza Camera Mount and Camerabooms. There are two inserts placed on either side of the kayak and directly in front of the paddler for mounting various accessories, such as the Tracport, and especially useful for extra support for those interested in kayak sailing using a sail like the Vela Eola.
NEW: 1 Railblaza Rod Holder R: Moulded in rugged fibreglass reinforced plastic, with stainless steel fasteners.
1 transducer compartment: located in a scupper plug hole on the bottom of the kayak. This means you can fit the transducer under the kayak in direct contact with the water and easily pass cables through to your fish finder whilst keeping the unit nice and protected. No DIY necessary - Galaxy Kayaks have already done this for you, meaning you can spend more time out on the water
1 lifeline made from durable rope: this durable rope allows fisherman to connect items to it, and is useful for manoeuvres such as anchor positioning. The new rope, versus the previous elastic, also improves manoeuvrability of the kayak if the worst happens and you need to use it as a lifeline
G-Line rudder and pedal system: the new model comes with stronger pedals and a smoother rudder system that allows for an increased angle of manoeuvre and helps control the kayak in rough conditions. Additionally, there is now a new wire protective sleeve on the rudder cable which means it is better protected from water damage and easier to replace
Improved waterline: the rear tank of the kayak has been raised by 5cm and the anchor storage has been replaced, which reduces water retention in this section during rough conditions and improves its draining ability. Our customer research revealed that many fishermen use a box storage setup in the rear of their kayaks, meaning the new tank also improves the stability of using such a storage system
2 silicone pockets: for storing any small items close to hand. Made from durable silicone and specially designed to help avoid tangling of hooks or other small items
2 paddle clips: to safely store your paddle when not in use.
2 anchor cleats: to use as a tie off point, an anchor support or to tie other items to your kayak
1 drainage plug: now located in the front of the kayak to further improve its ability to completely drain any bilge water that has been absorbed into the hull after use.
Identification plaque: now available on this model
Stainless steel screws: have been improved to the highest marine grade steel available
Improved hatch seals: have been made more flexible so that you now get an even better fit
1 central storage hatch: comes with option to use as live bait-well for either a wet or dry setup (just choose whether to use scupper plug) and with hermetic seal.
1 large front storage hatch: for general storage, complete with hermetic seal.
1 rectangular central storage hatch: for smaller items and complete with fish measuring scale on top as well as 4 moulded and hermetic seals.
1 splash bag: that comes within the hatch. Note, we recommend storing any fragile items, such as mobile phones, in dedicated waterproof containers (see NRS products) as humidity and condensation can still get within the splash bag
7 drainage points: located around the kayak, allowing you to choose where to drain water whilst maintaining desired areas dry.
7 scupper plugs: made from high quality rubber. Insert and remove when required for self-drainage system to activate.
