The Creek Company, the leader in personal fishing craft, celebrates its 25th anniversary with the introduction of the new Voyager 2, a two-person frameless pontoon drawing upon the success of its hugely popular personal fishing vessel, the Voyager Frameless Pontoon.
â€œThe technology and design work great for the single version, and it works even better for the two-person model,â€ says Creek Company president Chris Timmerman, whose office sits a cast away from the Yampa River. â€œIt’s truly one of the most revolutionary products on the market â€“ a ultra-light fishing platform that assembles in less than five minutes so anglers can get to task much faster.â€
The company recently returned from the annual iCAST tradeshow, with the Voyager 2 receiving rave reviews. Using frameless technology 25 years in the making, the innovative craft measures 13 feet long and goes from car trunk to river in under five minutes. Weighing just 65 lbs., it can be carried to even the most remote put-ins with ease, while still boasting a carrying capacity of more than 600 lbs. When you get to your river stretch, simply inflate and launch to experience exceptional performance, agility and power.
A unique feature on the Voyager 2 is the front seat pod, a removable, inflatable pod that allows the rider to choose a raised position or lower position. The raised position is important to sit higher on the water, allowing for more visibility and a more comfortable fishing station. The lower position is more stable for running bigger water.
The Voyager 2’s hull is made of durable, 1,000-denier nylon with an outer coating of 30-oz PVC whitewater raft material for additional strength, combined with a 30-gauge PVC bladder system fitted with Pro Series push button valves for bombproof air retention. Additional features include inflatable seats; two-piece oars with fold down oarlocks; an adjustable foot bar; four large, insulated side gear bags with rod and drink holders; stripping apron; D-rings to secure gear; carry handles; rear cargo/storage area; double action pump; and carry/storage bag. MSRP is $1,199.99.
