 Designed and engineered in the birth place of kontiki fishing, and tested in the harshest beach conditions, the Seahorse™ STD Electric Kontiki is the world's most successful beach longline fishing system. It can be operated either single-handedly or with family and friends so you can fish where and when you want. Able to power through most conditions, the Seahorse Electric Kontiki System takes beach kontiki fishing to a whole new level.

The STD Seahorse Kontiki with it's proven design has an incredible ability to self-steer through varying side currents and waves. The long body length of the Seahorse Kontiki allows for unrivalled longitudinal steering stability. Engineering our kontiki with the offset tow point and the forward mounted motor, ensures maximum resistance from waves and rough conditions. The long, low body acts like a rudder, removing the need for drag inducing keels. This low buoyancy design also gives the Seahorse the ability to dive under the breaking surf and avoid being washed off course.

We have found the line towing behind the Seahorse Kontiki works like the tail of a kite, and this helps to keep the unit straight. The low drag, front mounted rudder gives additional control for tackling offshore tidal currents or wind induced surface drift. By launching slightly into the current, the Seahorses' ability to steer a straight course will ensure your line is set where you want it.


The Seahorse™ Electronic Control Unit is completely sealed in resin. This resin block is fitted into the polyethylene body, and is held in place with moulded anchor points. The electronics remove a mass of wiring allowing a clean and simple battery compartment. There are two connecting leads showing to attach the two batteries.

A row of 10 super bright LEDs, which shine through the body, indicates your battery status and will indicate if the batteries need charging. The LED lights show the pre-selected running time of your Seahorse. The amount of time is indicated by the number of LED lights which illuminate in a bar display. Once the time is set simply start the Seahorse™ motor by putting the magnet near the START switch. You can run the Seahorse until the low battery cut-out switches it off, or you can set the timer to 25, 20, 15, 10 or 5 minutes run time.

The LED light flashes fast to show the motor is running, and on the Seahorse STD kontiki the lights will flash slow to show when slow speed is selected.

The Seahorse kontiki's have a built in automatic stall protection stall protection system. If the motor is stalled, the control unit will automatically stop and start the motor 3 times trying to dislodge the offending item.

Each Seahorse Kontiki (and winch) has a unique serial number that is registered against the purchaser.











The Seahorse™ Electric Winch

The Seahorse™ Electric Winch is built tough to do the hard work in a harsh beach environment. The Seahorse Winch makes launching and retrieval of your Seahorse™ a simple one person job, no matter what the conditions are like or how many fish you have on the line. The three speed control unit and pulse function gives you full control, allowing you to fish when you want.

The Seahorse electric winch is built with proven technology to ensure trouble free fishing no matter what the conditions.


The Seahorse™ "Clip & Go" Traceboard

The Seahorse™ aluminium "clip & go" traceboard is lighter, stronger cleaner, and easy to use. It can be used with a wide range of baits. The new, effective two-sided design of the Seahorse traceboard enables easy, fast, and safe attachment of the traces. Because Seahorse Kontiki's perform at high speed, we designed a traceboard that makes it easy for the operator to attach the traces safely and easily, and a winch that controls the line during the launch stage. The traceboard has long traces and seaharvester clips to enable quick and easy attachment.

The fisher stays away from the pre-baited hooks that are automatically dispensed from the far end of the board. The traces are attached between every second or third stopper on the stoppered section of line. The stoppers are 2.4 yards (2.2m) apart and you are supplied with 120 stoppers, giving you plenty of room to attach your traces.. The stoppers are nylon glued ties which do not affect line strength and are much better to handle than the cheaper aluminium crimps. The traces can be deployed in under a minute.








  • For ultimate performance and flexibility, the powerful and versatile two-speed Seahorse STD Kontiki with it's 46lb thrust motor will allow you to fish whenever you want. The two speed control unit gives you full power for serious surf and rips, or half speed for calmer conditions, ease of use, and maximum distance. The Mercury 46lb thrust motor swings a 3 blade prop that provides a massive amount of torque or pull. This enable the Seahorse STD kontiki to drag the line, baits and weights out through surf line and across side rips without the need for excessive speed. The slower speed delivers 27lb's of thrust, which is great for calmer conditions.

  • Seahorse Kontiki's are professionally designed and constructed by our team to handle the harsh beach conditions. It's imperative that everything is designed to operate in coastal elements such as sand, salt, and water. That is why all internal components, including the batteries, are fully sealed and waterproofed for maximum protection and to keep maintenance to a minimum. The Electronic Control Unit is encased in resin and is also completely waterproof.

  • The Seahorse products come with a 24 month warranty, 12 months on batteries, to give you, the user peace of mind. Seahorse offers the best back up service and support available, and we will help resolve any issues you have with your Seahorse™ products.

  • The world leading electronic control unit brings a new level of technology to Kontiki fishing The Control Unit is responsible for the management and protection of the batteries. It monitors the batteries, and will stop the motor if the charge in the battery fall to a low level. It starts and stops the motor, and if a timed run is selected, the electronic timer is used to control the run. The control unit is operated externally by a magnet allowing it to be operated anywhere and in any conditions. The stall protection and recovery feature is an essential feature to protect the motor and batteries from the extensive damage a stalled motor can cause. If the motor is stalled, the control will stop and start the motor 3 times, trying to dislodge the offending item, and allow you to continue fishing. 

  • The control panel is designed for simple one-touch control right up to the moment of launching

  • The long, low buoyancy, slab-sided body design, gives the Seahorse an incredible ability to self-steer through varying surf and currents. The smooth body design enables it to slice through the waves with minimal resistance, maximising the distance it travels. Because of its design, the whole body is able to operate as a rudder behind the forward mounted motor. To our advantage, this means we do not need drag inducing keels or rear mounted rudders. The low buoyancy shape allows the motor to pull the body and drive under the surf with unmatched performance.

  • The sleek body allows the Seahorse Kontiki to be launched into very shallow water (knee deep or even less), as the body has no protruding apertures that can catch on the bottom and pull the unit off course.

  • The batteries are accessed via a completely watertight submarine styled aluminium marine hatch. This hatch seals over a large surface area of the rubber seal. The Aluminium hatch will provide a watertight seal without distorting out of shape, and tighter the hatch is closed, the better the seal. The hatch screw cannot be over tightened.

  • The specially moulded battery box will hold the batteries securely in place no matter how rough the surf gets.

  • The low position of the batteries helps to keep the weight down low, ensuring the Seahorse STD Kontiki will always be stable and upright.

  • The offset aluminium tow point counters the torque of the powerful Mercury motor, allowing the motor to be mounted in-line with the body, and ensuring maximum drive from the motor. The position of the tow point has been identified through extensive in-house testing, removing any need to find the correct tow point offset yourself. We have found millimetres make a difference.

  • The high visibility flag is the largest practical size. Offering excellent visibility in many different light conditions. The automatic strobe light self activates in the dark, allowing users and other maritime users to see the Seahorse Kontiki at night - flags are available in different colours.

  • Each Seahorse Kontiki has a unique serial number to ensure positive identification of each unit. Seahorse maintains a register of owners for your benefit.

  • The handle ensures the Seahorse Kontiki balances well when being transported.

  • The small forward mounted rudder,provides positive direction control. The rudder pulls the Seahorse Kontiki up into the current as opposed to a rear mounted rudder which pushes the unit down with the current. Our testing has shown forward mounted rudders are more effective, therefore these do not need to be as big to have the same effect.

  • The strong aluminium motor guard frame protects the motor and the propeller so the kontiki can be launched in shallow water.

  • A full 24 month warranty provides carefree operation and support. Call us if you have a query regarding your Seahorse™. We are happy to help.



  • The Seahorse™ Electric Winch is designed to make launching and retrieving your Seahorse as simple as possible - it is a one-man operation.

  • The Seahorse Winch is the most advanced beach kontiki fishing winch available. It's advance design makes it simple to operate, and simple to clean.

  • Being loaded with design features, it is also the simplest winch to operate.

  • The simple and effective drag rubber controls the speed of the drum on launching to stop overruns. The drag rubber adds constant drag to the winch drum during the launching process, thus stopping the line jumping and causing overruns. Once the traces are attached the drag rubber is removed off the drum, in turn removing the drag and allowing for maximum distance. Additional drag can be manually applied if required.

  • The line used on the Seahorse Winch is 300lb (140kg), breaking strain, commercial grade mono-filament fishing line. This line size is selected because it is easy to handle, yet strong enough to withstand a high level of abuse.

  • The line consists of a 3m shock cord, followed by 175 yards (150m) of leader line. This is used by the fisher to guide the Seahorse through the surfline. The following 275 yards (250m) of stoppered line has 120 resin coated stoppers where the weights and traces are attached. The stoppered line is then followed by 1760 yards (1600m) of mainline to allow set-up of the Seahorse up to 1.2 miles offshore. This gives you plenty of time to get your traces attached to the line.

  • The marine grade wiring and external switches are completely waterproofed. So not only can the unit be washed easily, but it is also protected from any unexpected waves hitting the beach.

  • The winch control unit is fully protected from the beach environment. The unit has three speeds so you can select the correct speed for whatever the situation. There is also the sealed ON/OFF/PULSE switch giving you complete control.

  • The slow speed is for trolling the baits back to the beach. This technique can be used successfully with soft baits or lures.

  • Medium speed has an overload thermal auto cut-out to protect the motor. This speed is great when you are pulling in a massive load of fish.

  • High speed uses all the power of the 150 watt motor to retrieve the line in the fastest possible time, so you spend less time waiting and more time fishing.

  • The speeds are electronically controlled to ensure no battery power is wasted.

  • The aluminium frame design and low drum placement enables the winch to lock itself into the sand, making it very stable and removing any need to pin it down. The winch can also be fitted onto a quad bike or 4x4.

  • The self lubricating bushes eliminate the need for grease (as grease and sand is a big no-no).

  • The powerful 150 watt motor will provide up to 100lb's of pull. This is sufficient to pull in even the biggest fish. The low profile design enables all the power to be used.

  • The large 14ah battery capacity allows for up to 2.5 miles of hauling. This is normally sufficient for two complete hauls.

  • A full 24 month warranty provides carefree operation and support. Call us if you have any queries regarding our Seahorse Electric Winch.


  • The strong aluminium frame is light weight and does not hold the smell of the fish or baits. Its design means it can be cleaned easily, and this keeps the traces and the board in top condition.

  • The convenient two sided design reduces the size of the traceboard while maximising the spacing between hooks increasing baiting options.

  • The traceboard is specifically designed to handle long trace, which has proven more successful.

  • The Seahorse designed and machined, trace and hook holders enable the traces to be held with minimum tension ensuring easy and safe operation.

  • Seaharvester clips and longline hooks bring commercial know-how and techniques to recreational fishing. While there are a number of techniques for attaching traces to the mainline, we have found the Seaharvester clips are the quickest, easiest, and safest method of attaching traces.

  • There are ten spare pre-tied traces included with our traceboard (in addition to the 26 on the board).
