Can you Motorize a Vanhunks Kayak?

Motorizing a Vanhunks takes minutes and can make your time on the water a lot more enjoyable. You no longer have to worry about the long paddle home after a long day or having to compete against the strong winds. You can now sit back, relax, and enjoy the sun and the scenery.

Who is Vanhunks?

Vanhunks Boarding is set out to create quality, durable products that can handle anything Mother Nature might throw at you while you’re out ripping and shredding.

What’s more, they have managed to home these Legends to you in Florida, well within reach of the rich watersports lifestyle our Sunshine State offers. This explains the loyal and growing support they have received since their vessels launched in Florida’s subtropical waters, which only fuels them to bring you better and more using the most advanced materials and the skills of a handful of the finest shapers in the industry.

How do I Motorize my Vanhunks Kayak?

The Bixpy J-2 Outboard kit can motorize your Scout Inflatable in no time. The J-2 Outboard kit has many features that make it the perfect solution for your motorized needs. The motor itself runs for approximately 80 minutes at top speed and up to 12 hours at slower speeds and operates via wireless remote control with 12 forward speeds and three reverse speeds. At top speeds, the Bixpy J-2 motor will have you cruising in your dinghy at about 4.5 MPH. The ultralight setup (weighs just 9 lb including battery and motor) makes it the perfect partner for your light inflatables. It is waterproof and dirt resistant, with an Outboard Power Pack and remote that float in case of accidental slippage.

These versatile kayaks and boards offer a variety of motor-ready features that make it easy to Bixpy them in seconds.

The Bixpy Low Profile Thruhull Pedal Drive adapter easily fits into the drive pods, the Bixpy Transom adapter snaps onto the provided Vanhunks Transom adapter and if you have a Vanhunks paddle board, one of our paddle board fin adapters will motorize your board in seconds!

There’s More… Motorize Your Vanhunks Paddleboard!

Vanhunks has a variety of beautiful and stable paddleboards. Their fleet of boards includes three hard board SUPs and one inflatable SUP. They pride themselves on quality and encompass a competitive spirit that drives them to be the best and overcome anything in their way.

With enough passion, heart, and hard-headed dedication, anything is possible in the world of water sports. Even something as contradictory as “affordable quality boards.” After all, isn’t the whole watersport experience a bit of a contradiction - a blend of meditative calm, swirled in with a surge of stroke and rush of adrenaline?

Make sure you Bixpy your board with our J-2 Outboard kit and either the Bixpy US Fin Adapter if you have a Vanhunks hardboard or the Flip and Lock Adapter for the inflatable SUP
