The Predator XL kayak from Old Town is perfect for people who do enjoy a paddle but also wouldn't mind having the option of navigating the water without having to suffer through a shoulder and core workout. This kayak can be fitted with a drop-in electric module that comes with a foot-controlled rudder system and offers 45 pounds of thrust.

The Minn Kota electric motor module drops right into the kayak and offers saltwater-grade power with both forward and reverse modes.

The fully motorized Predator XL kayak with Minn Kota module, battery box and rudder will sell for $2,699. The base module costs $1,599 on its own, while the Minn Kota motor module costs $999. The boat itself measures 4 meters and weighs 92 pounds, with the motor console adding 25.5 pounds.
