 Product Description and Specs

The Native Watercraft Propel 12.5 may be the most boat in a 12-foot package you'll find anywhere. Generous beam and plenty of volume give the boat the stability to let you stand confidently for casting or just getting a good view of what's ahead. The pedal drive enables you to enjoy the Mariner's maneuverability and comfort all day. The crank arm on the pedal drive has been shortened for easier pedaling so you don't have to bring your knee up as far. The Native Mariner 12.5 features an open rear deck that is great for a small passenger or gear for a day on the water. The unique low rear deck design coupled with unrivaled stability means that climbing back in after a swim or snorkel is almost effortless. Drive works in both forwards and reverse.

• Patented tunnel hull for added stability
• Air-Lite seating system dries quickly and can move forward or recline
• Plug and play system for easy attachment of accessories
• Propel Drive System included
• Drive works in both forwards and reverse

Hello fellow paddlers! Purchased a Mariner 12.5 Propel for coastal fishing & paddling and have a few comments to share about it. First, Austin Kayak does a great job at wrapping these things but check your boat from bow to stern before you let the delivery driver go!! Second, this boat has amazing speed, stability, a sweet rudder system, and stays quite dry for a sit on top kayak. Paddling or poling this boat when standing up is easy and a "C" stroke seems to make the boat track like an arrow. The Propel drive is fun and enjoyable but once in waves or windy conditions, the propeller will cavitate if you try to pedal any faster than you would a cruiser bicycle! Native needs to have a second look at these props because they are pitched way too high for anything but smooth calm water. The seat is nice and comfy and is easily removed from the kayak to create a clean area when fishing standing up. The bow storage is ok and the stern of the kayak resembles a pick-up truck bed, but can be difficult to reach gear or bags when out on water. Haven't installed fishfinder yet but it will be tough to find a suitable spot so that it will be out of the way of propel drive or when paddling. Overall, I am very pleased with this boat and look forward to the upcoming fishing season!

It is nice and efficient, and great to be able to go in reverse while fishing but the negatives outweigh the positive. If you kayak in an area which is high in vegetation, forget it. You will be picking weeds ou of the prop and conjugating new forms of the F word. Salt water use requires meticulous maintenance. I bought one for my wif who couldn't paddle due shoulder issues. We live on deep water creek here in Georgia and she would go out by herself and often not take meticulous care of the propel mechanism. It lasted one season before it became completely frozen and useless. I was unable to take it apart even with numerous attempts with products intended for this pip use, a heat gun , even a sledge hammer. I have since purchased her a Hobie Mirage (and one for myself). It is a far superior product.

Best kayak I have ever been on, shipped with no problems what so ever. Was at my front door in 5 days. Broke it in on 4 ft beach waves. Super stable, love the scuppers. I have purchased the kayak and all accessories through austin kayak, best prices compared to local shops. A couple scotty mount pole holders and milk crate, it is a fishing machine!!!
