The new Flex Drive System offers forward and reverse operation and includes a unique articulating system for deep and shallow water navigation.


ZEN 3.0

Everything you’ve always loved about the Zen, made even better! Whether you’re just learning to stay upright, running a beautiful river with your friends, or looking for your next creek boat, the Zen 3.0 will give you the confidence to enjoy your adventure.

Due to an increased rocker profile, the Zen 3.0 stays on top of the water like never before. It’s a dry, confidence-inspiring bow with plenty of volume to help keep you in control in crashing waves or steeper rapids. Increased rocker and slightly shorter length also makes it easy to turn and keep online, even when skipping out across backwash or dealing with cross-currents.



 Fans of the original Jackson Kilroy will be excited with this new Jackson Kilroy HD, the new standard in versatility for a sit-inside fishing kayak. The hull has been reshaped for even more storage, more stability, bow to stern gear and seat track and a layout that is more suited than ever for functional versatility. Fish today, hunt tomorrow or take the family or dog on an expedition! Customize with accessories like fish bags, duck decoy bins, kennel cot, casting brace or second seat. Rig your own adventures without limitations using the Kilroy HD’s versatile modular set up to match your craft to your adventure as you see fit.


Named for the native Alaskan peoples that coined the word “kayak” (qayaq), the Jackson YuPIK changes the very definition of versatility. Bow To Stern track systems, rigging solutions and storage pockets molded in along the entirety of the boat allows the modularity for you to rig for your adventure without limitation. Customize your fun with more room! Second seat capabilities and specialized accessories, like our new kennel cot, improves the experience for everyone. Additions like the fully trimmable seat pan, our Strap Down gear track for 360 storage security and the first ever moving standing pad system make the YuPIK the most versatile kayak on the market.


The world’s most popular hunting and companion breeds — pointers, setters, coonhounds and perennial favorites, goldens and labs — just want to go where you go. Same with goofy, chunky mixed-breed rescues. AD3 is built so you don’t have to think twice about making them all happy. Our handle/tie-down system secures your companion instantly, using your vehicle’s restraints or your own straps. Multi-directional door opens as your situation dictates — left, right, up or removed entirely. Available essentials keep food, water and leashes organized and handy. If he could, your wingman would type this part: #BringYourDog.


The top-selling Bite gets an upgrade! The open deck and well-designed tackle management features have come together with our latest version of the Flex Drive, the Flex Drive 3D. This nimble ride is quick and responsive, and standing to fish is fun and easy for beginners and experienced anglers alike. The Bite FD tracks well and handles windy days with ease.
