Malibu Kayaks Stealth 14



If ya like the X Factor you will love the Stealth 14. The low profile gator hatch is going to open to the hull.



A built in livewell/bait tank can be plumbed through hull accessible side hatch. I also was able to stow a bass rod through this hatch. The opposite side hatch is enclosed for stowing the lil stuff..........humidor sounds good to me.



This looks like it could work 12 volt free "panga style" for a few baits. The 2 black tabs forward on the tank can be perforated to run out the scupper holes .



The built in livewell drain is threaded and can be sealed for dry storage. The same threaded scupper holes are in the seat well for a completely dry ride in flat water. The oval center hatch also sports a small clear 4 inch hatch to toss in baits or have one at the ready.





The rear hatch has been raised up about an inch for heavy loads and some newly design tank well recesses keep a greater variety of things in place.

Supposed to be available for purchase VERY soon.

It lloks beautiful but I gotta tell ya. With the led up on that
livewell it looks like a toilet. Don't leave it un attended on the
beach. No telling what you'll find in there.

That livewell is a great idea! They should make a mesh vent for that (I'm thinking hollow threaded pass-thru with a domed wire mesh top) to keep baits from getting sucked against it. Seems like a couple pieces could make a healthy home in there - without the electric bilge pump. Possibly an aftermarket macerator for those coffee induced mornings as well? "Sorry candy macks, you gotta make way for a lunker brown trout."

Those side hatches/foot pads are an awesome idea too. Very innovative!

Doug, it was supposed to go back to the factory yesterday, but I still have it. Call me if you are coming this way and see if it is still here.

But does it suck at speed? I mean when you're paddling does the water level drop?

I like the well thought out, fishing oriented cock pit. When are they going to get peddles?

With the livewell right between your legs, do your danglies stay dry? If it's wet, that'll still make a great tackle box. Nice!

That bait tank looks great and it's about time too. What are the diameter and depth of that thing? Volume. Thanks, Mike

The stealth will use the same kit as the Xfactor

Youd need one heck of a battery for a full day of fishing at La Jolla though....
