Sound 9.5

lightbox

Feature-rich recreational fishing kayak.

The Perception Sound 9.5 kayak’s ultimate stability and durability make it ideal for paddlers and anglers looking to explore slow-moving rivers, lakes, and ponds. The 9-foot-6 sit-in design protects from the elements while its light weight makes it easy to carry. The tri-keel stabilizer hull stays on course with little effort by tracking straight and steering smoothly. Essential features include molded-in gear storage, two rod holders, and a dashboard will please the occasional angler.

Comfort

Perception kayaks are known for comfort, and the Sound is a perfect example. The ergonomic seat offers performance you can feel with thick padding, as well as a vertically adjustable backrest for fine-tuned ergonomic support. Your legs will be protected thanks to the sit-in cockpit’s padded perimeter, which can even accommodate a spray skirt for protection in rougher waters. Easily adjustable footrests customize fit for paddlers of all sizes.

Stability & Performance

The Sound makes paddling fun with ultimate stability in a sit-in design that’s perfect for beginner to intermediate paddlers. The sit-in design also lowers the kayak’s center of gravity to bring you closer to the water, enhancing stability and paddling efficiency. Its smooth straight-tracking tri-keel hull makes it speedy and easy to maneuver while paddling, casting, and reeling in fish.

Features & Safety

The Sound is engineered and tested to be among the safest kayaks on the water with built-in buoyancy and ultimate stability. An open rear compartment featuring bungee cord lashes secures gear of any shape or size. The molded-in dashboard workstation, cup holder, and two rear rod holders keep essentials handy. Molded-in carry handles offer lockable security points for car top transportation and outdoor storage.

Durability

Like all Perception kayaks, the Sound is designed for maximum durability and optimized weight. This is the result of its high-density polyethylene and one-piece roto-molded construction that provides exceptional UV, impact, and abrasion-resistance. Ocean and saltwater-optimized hardware and finishes prevent corrosion for long-lasting performance.

Water Types

Flat, Slow-Moving, Calm Coastal
