Perception Swing kayak for sale. North West Sydney

#1 Post by Mr Squiggle » Sat Mar 09, 2019 2:20 pm

I have for sale my trusty Perception Swing kayak.
The Swing kayak has a reputation for being a wonderful kayak, easy to paddle, stable and tough……that’s why I bought it 6 years ago.
This kayak has been my only fishing boat and has been used from Victoria right up into QLD. I have been out in the ocean and all the way up rivers and creeks until they ran out of water. She has been a dependable and reliable companion. It does not leak a drop.
I have never managed to tip it over, even when a blueswimmer bit me on the inside upper thigh it still didn’t topple over; I fell in the water screaming for my mummie but she was sitting there patiently waiting for me to clamber aboard and sulk for an hour!
I have put some rod holders behind the seat, and used a plastic milk crate for storage in the recessed area. There is a Railblaza to hold a rod between your feet (I use this all the time) and two more mounted on the front deck. I had a rail mounted on these two and stored a few rods flat against the deck.
There is a rubber hatch lid on the front and it is absolutely watertight, including out to sea. I added extra bungee cord on the front of the boat in case I wanted to strap something on there, like my yabbie pump.
The kayak comes with a paddle of course. I had a no drill anchor trolley on it and I can discuss how I did that if you want the boat. It’s very easy to do and works a treat.
Please look at the photos and you can see the condition of the boat. It was been well used but always cared for. It is like me…….I have some bumps, bruises and scrapes on me, but turn up to work every day and can still hold my own with the pretty boys.
If you are looking to kick off in this wonderful hobby, or need a second boat for your mates, you can’t go wrong with this girl. I will feel sad to see her drive away.
I will put it on for $300 and see how that goes. Come look at it before you decide, I am happy for you to give it a look over and be sure it is right for you.
Regards, Anthony

Anthony, FYI engraved on the side near the rear lifting handle is a code number.

The numbers before SW indicate the year it was made, the numbers after SW are that boats own ID number.

Good luck with the sale, a good buy for someone down your way.

Great boats i had one of these for years.
I feel the swing paved the way for many modern day sit on tops.
Anyone looking for an old warhorse or just getting into kayaking should snap this up.
If i were in the market i would def look into this more but good luck with the sale.

Thanks for the positive comments guys. Its one thing for a seller to claim a boat is good, support from people not associated with the sale means a lot. Cheers, Anthony
Ps. If somebody is a way out of Sydney and wants to avoid coming into the horendous traffic I could meet you somewhere convenient for a handover, providing a weekend. Happy to assist.

Might be the wrong end if the season to be selling a yak.

Perhaps $300 is too much. I will try $250 now and put it on Ebay if there is no interest.

Cheers. Anthony.

$300 is too cheap. Market may be flat, doesnt de-value what your selling tho.
