It’s not a bad gig, designing and building kayaks, hybrids and accessories that get people out in the natural world. As busy and crowded as the world seems, there are still tranquil places to explore, wildlife to encounter, moments to photograph, fish to stalk, catch and release. These places often exist in our own back yards. And there’s no better way to discover them than in a Native Watercraft. Most of the company has been knocking around water and the outdoors, as a passion and a career, the better part of our lives. There are decades of boat-building knowledge behind your Native Watercraft, and a passion for paddling’s history and its future.

Overview

The hull of the XC is designed towards cross conditions performance. A broad flatter hull not only allows river anglers to maneuver and control their boats in tighter conditions while sliding through shallow areas with a very shallow draft, but it also gives an incredibly stable standing platform for sight fishing. A flip of a lever drops a directional skeg to allow the Slayer XC to track on a line to the next spot. The XC includes with a removable electronics ready pod.

When it’s time to cover some ground, a flip of a lever drops a directional skeg to allow the Slayer XC to track on a line to the next spot. The XC maintains a clean deck profile for anglers, but is carefully packed with fish ready features and advanced electronics capabilities for the biggest gear hounds. In designing the XC, we worked with a group of our pro staff to develop not only a layout fit for a pro, simple and clean, but feature rich. No cluttered deck, no tangled lines, just fishing on our mind.

What Users Are Saying

Having the skeg system is like having two kayaks in one platform. It is truly effective for tracking dead ahead when deployed and turning on a dime with one stroke when retracted.
