The Malibu Kayaks Stealth 12 was reintroduced to the kayak fishing world at Outdoor Retailer 2017. The new Stealth 12 features more space for storage, waterproof gator hatch and a truly luxurious seat.
Reintroducing the Stealth 12
The new Stealth 12 has a plug-and-play center livewell system with a new added six-inch hatch with a removable bucket for dry storage. Instead of a regular lift tab, the livewell system has an integrated base with a four-point locking system. The drainage system has also been upgraded so it is watertight.
Another upgrade for the Stealth is the gator hatch system. On top of the hatch is Malibu Kayak’s patented child seat. Under the seat is a waterproof hatch that can be accessed while kayaking. The hatch is perfect for storing your fresh catch, instead of trailing it behind your kayak.
One of the best upgrades is the new Stealth 12 seat. Think of a really comfortable computer chair, and that is what this seat feels like. It has a dual anodized aluminum finish, 3d moisture wicking fabric and four available positions. When the seat folds up, there is a telescoping casting post in the bottom, which can also be used as an accessory mount.
