SEPTEMBER 2017 – Kennesaw, GA – Vibe today launches the Yellowfin 130T, a new 13-foot sit-on-top tandem kayak that comfortably holds two adults–if you’re willing to share your secret honey holes with anyone. The Vibe Yellowfin 130T Kayak Package, competitively priced under $1000, is equipped with two Hero seats and two Vibe Journey paddles. The breathable-mesh seats with sturdy metal frames can be placed in multiple seating positions including a solo paddling set-up, and the cockpit includes fully-adjustable foot braces. These features, along with a uniquely-designed hull that rides high in the water while providing great stability, result in an uncommonly comfortable paddling experience – while retaining the performance and maneuverability for which Vibe Kayaks are known.

“Our newest tandem boat was basically built by our customers,” said Josh Thomas, CEO and co-founder of Vibe. “We listened and then incorporated the input from current Vibe owners and our Pro Team to design the Yellowfin 130T. That guidance led us to build a ridiculously comfortable, capable boat that is perfect for both family recreation or serious kayak fishing.”

The new Vibe Yellowfin 130T is 13 feet long, 35 inches wide and has a load capacity of 500 pounds. It is built using a single piece of rotomolded-polyethylene, and the cockpit can be configured to hold two adults and a small child or a single adult paddling in the center position. The Vibe Yellowfin 130T Tandem Kayak Package includes the Kayak, two Vibe Hero frame seats and two Vibe Journey paddles. The kayak is available in four colors: Blue Lagoon, Sunset Camo, Moss Camo and Jam Berry.


  • Comfort and Convenience: Two Vibe Hero seats, four easy-grip carrying handles, two built in cup holders, adjustable foot braces and rudder-ready construction (rudder parts and rigging are also available from Vibe).
  • Gear Mounting: Two capped flush-mount rod holders, two side bungee paddle parks, two built-in accessory mounts and four mounting points for optional gear tracks.
  • Cargo: Two, 9” sealed hatches with bag inserts, rear tankwell with adjustable bungee, bow cargo bungee system and four tackle tray holders (two on either side of each seat).
  • Construction: rotomolded as a single piece of polyethylene, with 12 scupper holes (plugs included).

The Vibe Yellowfin 130T Tandem Kayak Package is available online from Vibe now for $999.99, and will be available at select Vibe dealers on Monday, October 2, 2017. If you would like to learn more about the Vibe Yellowfin 130T, please visit

    Is the Vibe 130T a good kayak for the gulf, or better as an inland/bay/fresh water?
