Give a man a fish and he'll eat for a day. Give a man the Native Watercraft Slayer 12 Kayak and he'll eat fish for the rest of his life. This sit-on-top kayak features a polyethylene hull that withstands all the abuse that comes along with the boat life including rocky crashes and beach put-ins. The Slayer 12 slices through the water quietly in order to give you the advantage, and it remains stable so you can reel in a fat one if you're lucky. The fish-specific cockpit has a flat deck for standing, and the high-low first class seat is adjustable so you can sit down low in the kayak or raise the seat up for fly-fishing. Raising the seat also means you can slide an extra cooler underneath it. The open bow and stern offer extra storage and easy on-water access, and a rail system helps you secure your gear however you want. Its fishing-crate and bait-bucket areas include rod tip rests, molded indents for your tackle box, a secure area for a plano box, a compartment for your electronics, and a beverage holder. The Slayer also features a tag-along stern wheel that helps you roll the kayak up concrete ramps or along docks. And both the back drain plug and scuppers in the open and bow stern storage areas allow you to dump any unwanted water out of the kayak at the day's end.
The Native Watercraft Slayer 12 was designed to be a fishing machine. Whether you're fly fishing or angling, the Slayer will easily accommodate you and all of your gear, giving you a comfortable and hassle-free fishing experience.For free shipping to most of our New England stores, or to ask any questions, call Customer Service at 888-463-6367.
A remarkably stable sit-on-top kayak for fishing, photography and bird watching, the Native Watercraft Slayer 12 encourages you to stay out longer and have more fun thanks to its top-notch seating. The Native Watercraft Slayer 12 sit-on-top kayak is well-suited to lakes and slow moving water. Designed to be more maneuverable than its 14.5 ft. counterpart, the Slayer 12 features a 31 in. width to enhance stability. Broad and flat hull enhances stability for standing, draping legs over the side and shifting weight to fetch items out of storage. Low-profile sides resist high winds, and clutter-free area directly in front of seat won't snag your fishing line. Polyethylene construction offers performance and rugged durability, and self-bailing scupper holes keep you floating high. The seat on the Slayer 12 features 2 layers of padding to enhance comfort on the water; Native calls this seating "First Class". Elevating you above the point where water might collect, the seat consists of a UV- and water-resistant mesh stretched over an anodized aluminum frame. Seat can be put in 3 positions: raised off the deck for sightseeing, fishing or photography, lowered to the deck to optimize paddling, or flipped back to maximize space. Seat may be removed completely to lighten the kayak when loading on your vehicle or to use as a camp chair. Footbraces adjust forward and backward and can be completely removed to reduce snags. Spacious bow and stern storage holds bulky gear such as coolers, crates or tackle boxes. Electronics console offers a dry storage area for batteries when using depth or fish finders (not included). Soft handles at bow and stern are very easy to grab with tired hands. Rear wheel makes it easy for one person to transport boat over smooth, packed surfaces.
