YuPIK Accessories and Parts


Named in honor of the indigenous Alaskan culture that originated the term "kayak" (qayaq), the Jackson YuPIK redefines versatility. Its sleek, uncluttered deck, customizable outfitting, diverse rigging options, and ample storage spaces set it apart as the most adaptable kayak available. If you enjoy tailoring your experience, the YuPIK is your perfect match. Featuring an open and stable deck, it offers the same stand-up capability and spaciousness as other kayaks in the Jackson lineup.


  • 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
  • Strap-down gear track for 360° storage security
  • Optional Hawg Trough Fishing Accessory Tray for even more options
  • The YuPIK now features Jackson’s EZ Hi-Lo Seating System (Patented)! Take comfort to new levels, and raise and lower your seat with one hand. Learn more here:
  • Four spots along the sidewall of the YuPIK keep tackle boxes (3640 Plano) close at hand, yet out of the way
  • Scooped bow allows easier storage of soft goods such as tents, dry bags, decoy bags, etc
  • Seat-side tackle stagers to embed those hooks and keep them from rolling loose in your boat
  • Front scupper hole accommodates many larger transducer sizes, making installation of fish finder units a snap
  • A four-hole bolt pattern on the stern to support accessories such as the PowerPole and Torqeedo trolling motor mount adaptor

Suggested Application:

The YuPIK boasts outstanding tracking and stability, making it an excellent choice for navigating small lakes, ponds, large lakes, and inshore saltwater areas. Its generous storage and secure tie-down areas make it perfect for extended paddling trips, including overnight and multi-day camping adventures.

  • Yupik

    Posted by Keith on Dec 15th 2023

    Purchased last year. Fished like crazy. Added few accessories- rod hikers, fish finder etc. had 2 other kayaks. So far the Yupik is the best- lots of room for poles-tackle. I use it for saltwater / pond/ lakes. - I will certainly buy another Jackson in future

  • Yupik - Not a fan of the weak track system

    Posted by Kurt on Sep 4th 2021

    This is my third Jackson kayak. I very much enjoy the stability, openness of the yak, and the adjustability of the seat. The yak ride somewhat slower, due to it's width, but it's a pleasure for fishing. I'm not a fan of the long tracks on the side of the yak. The track system is mounted to the yak with thin little screws. Having the foot pegs attached to the outside tracks puts a huge amount of stress on the tracks. Basically, all of those little screws loosen up all the time. I'm now trying to figure out the best solution to keep those screws in (PTFE tape, CA glue, epoxy, thicker screw...). The other option would be to purchase the foot brace from the Mayfly. I'm not sure how comfortable that would be? I'm hoping Jackson will help me out with this issue.

  • Amazing kayak

    Posted by Papa Bear on Feb 2nd 2021

    I've used this kayak tandem with my wife or a child, solo paddled, motorized, and while fishing. It's very versatile with the sliding seat and unmatched track/tie-down options. It's surprisingly efficient to paddle, and easy to handle. The seat hurt my rear end (a lot) on my first 4-hour outing, but once I loosened the straps under the seat, it got extremely comfortable. The bag that hangs on the back of the seat gapes open and doesn't hold things as securely as it could, but I didn't even know it had a bag when I bought it, so no big deal. All in all, I enthusiastically recommend this kayak.

    Awesome. Tracks well, very stable, unlimited space for fishing, camping, taking the dog along, or 2 people. Extremely pleased!
