Description

Navigate shallow coves or relax in the open water.

Paddling on open waters or in shallow inlets can be the ideal way to relax, unless your back and butt are ridiculously sore. Thanks to the removable First Class Seat and thigh pads in the Native Watercraft Marvel 10 Recreational Kayak, you'll have a comfortable ride. The First Class Seat removes to offer you a perch on the bank or to lighten the weight (7-pounds lighter) of the kayak for loading and unloading. Native Watercraft made this kayak with a sturdy design and a ten-foot length, so you can still make tight turns despite the stable width. The foot rests adjust to the right length once you're in the water, and the rear storage hatch keeps your essentials safe and dry.

I am new to the sport. Is this a good Kayak to start. What length paddle do you recommend, I am 5'11"

Responded on

Is a good kayak. you would be looking for something in the 190 cm to 210 cm range. It depends on the water conditions too, if you plan to be very active, whitewater, then you will want something on the 190 side, for touring and more laid back adventures, you will want something closer to the 200 range

Most comfortable seats!!!!!!

My girlfriend and I looked at dozens of different brands of kayaks before settling on the Marvel 10. Time and again, we kept coming back to the Marvel 10 during our search because of the "First Class" seating. Instead of using padded foam over a plastic seat bottom like all of the other kayaks we looked at, the Marvel 10 has a ventilated fabric stretched around an aluminum frame. Your butt is never in contact with any hard surface or frame rail. The seat back is done the same way, and it's adjustable. In fact, you can stretch your legs out on the front of the kayak, recline the seat back and take a nap!!! And the entire seat can be removed to use around your camp or when taking an extended break.

We've paddled for up to six hours at a time and not once have we even thought about our comfort. Native Watercraft's website has some short videos showing the advantages of their seats. Check it out!

can you stand in the 10 foot as in the 12?

Responded on

John,
Im not sure you should be standing in this, but the 12 ft will be a little more stable than the 10 ft so if you wanna play gondolier (they guys that work in Venice) then go for a 12 footer you're less likely to fall.

I would like to be able to go "canoe/kayak" camping - I have a canoe, but not a kayak. What kayak brand/model would be best for toting camping gear?

Responded on

Depends on how much you want to carry. The Marvel has a dry hatch/bulkhead in the stern for dry storage.

This may be a stupid question but I just got a Marvel 10 and I notice there are two stiff foam supports in the bow of the boat. It resembles thick packaging foam. Can I take those foam support blocks out now or do I need to leave them in?

Responded on

Mig,
You're going to want to leave those in there! Those are floats for the front of the boat since you only have a rear bulkhead. If you ever tip your boat you will be VERY thankful those are in there! Thanks for the chuckle ;-) now be safe!

Responded on

Mig,

Marvels have bow foam flotation up front that is glued in and should not be removed. Also, a support foam pillar is placed just in front of the cockpit. This is to protect the boat from any compression during shipping and can be easily removed if desired.

Mark,

Marvels are suited for lakes but can handle some class 1 and small class 2's.

Marvel Seats quick release out of the kayak for a nice beach or camp chair. Less gear to take on trips, and no more sitting on hard rocks along the river.

Lightweight

Marvels are light kayaks. At 10 feet and only 40lbs this is almost as light as polyethylene boats can get. However, the 7 1/2 lbs seat in this boat quick releases out of the boat so ..... all you have to load and unload is a 32 1/2 lbs hull! This is a nice feature, having a removable seat to have at lunch stops and around the fire on overnight kayak camping trips.

The Marvel 10 kayak has bow designed to track straight. The hull is slighly arched to be versatile. A lake and river kayak for beginers who want more back support than most kayaks.

Native Watercraft Marvel 10

Native's Marvel 10 is a stable and easy to turn kayak. The cockpit is large enough for easy in and out. The bow's design gives a dry ride through chop and waves directs the splash away from your face and cockpit-dry ride. The hull geometry is arched with some grooves that make the marvel stiffer than most plastic kayaks (better handling and longer life). The hull is not "V"ed so when you are sideways on rivers, rocks can't flip you over. This is why its a great choice for paddlers wanting versatility...one boat for rivers and lakes.
The hatch the marvel 10 is not rubber. Its a hard material that doesnt expand and contract like rubber hatches. This makes the marvel hatch easier to put on and take off and less moving parts like some hatches.
The "first class" seat is very comfortable and supportive. This seat can also quick release from the kayak and be used for a camp/beach chair..really handy for lunch time and camping trips.
Versatile boat, comfortable, lighter than most in 10 foot range,
