Shearwater 125

SKU: VKB-21R-SW12502-GX



The Shearwater 125 was engineered from the water up to be the world's most versatile and customizable fishing kayak. It comes fully loaded with built-in fishing features that can be customized into a pro-level angling kayak. At 12.5 ft, it remains unrivaled in speed and stability in a variety of water types and conditions.

We designed the Shearwater 125 to accommodate several optional propulsion systems—paddle, pedal, or power acceleration. It comes standard with a paddle pod. Plus, with the release of our new Impulse Drive, Vibe pedal-driven kayak owners have the option of two different pedal systems. The Impulse Drive is a propeller-driven pedal system that features instant reverse, and our X-Drive is a fin drive that's perfect for fishing in shallow water.

Awsome fishing kayak but vibe needs to do better with there shipping. The kayak was packaged very well but I did not receive any for of tracking on the shipment. When you spend close to 2k on a kayak, I would be nice to know where it is when it’s being shipped. Despite that, the 30 day estimated shipping on the website was as predicted. I think I received it after 31 days of purchase and that’s only because the truck was running late on day 30 but the shipping company was good about contacting me about it.


Excellent delivery driver. Arrived at the 20th business day. Today is her maiden voyage
