This is the best kayak on the market for big guys. I'm 6' 3 " and 275# and have had no problems with stability, I can even stand and fish or hang my legs off the side and have never felt unstable. The stealth is 33" wide and 14' long and has a max weight of 550#, which is one of the highest in the market. This kayak has a built in livewell, which you can add a livewell pump to and plenty of storage for all of your gear and tackle. This is the bass boat of kayaks. The Stealth 14 tracks great and is easy to paddle. If you are looking for a kayak for fishing or just to paddle around then look no further.

What a fishing machine!!
Last Sept, I purchased a Malibu Stealth 14 for fishing in both fresh and salt water. I've had other kayaks before and they worked okay but I wanted one that was stable, had a large capacity and was comfortable......I'm 5'11 and 260 lbs. I'm constantly crappie fishing using live minnows as well as catching live bait at the coast and was tired of dragging around a minnow bucket. The stealth 14, which has a built in live well in the center was a perfect fit. I added a pump system so I could recirculate the water and it runs off a 12V10amp battery installed in one of the storage areas. The stealth 14 is very stable for standing and sight casting as well as sitting side saddle for those lazy days of fishing with your feet in the water. The stealth offers several side storage compartments as well as a rear storage area for tackle, first aid kits, snacks, etc. Even though it is a wide kayak(33"), it's very easy to paddle and tracks great. I've rigged it out with an anchor trolley, rod holders and a Hummingbird 180 FF. I love my Malibu stealth 14

Typically the seat is not included. This allows the angler to chose from the many seats available. Crack of Dawn makes some of the best and you get purchase an entry level seat around $100 or less or you can go with the most comfortable seat out there in my opinion which is the Crack of Dawn Spider Angler seat. If you look it up on YouTube I have a video review of it. Don't let this deter you from considering this kayak. I have seen some people out on the water in a Malibu with a bleacher seat for temporary measures until they found a new or used seat at their desired price. You may end up standing in it all day anyway.
The seat is not included with the stealth. Reason: not all seats are made the same and not all seats fit all people the best. The seat is probably the most important piece of equipment for a relaxing and enjoyable day on the water. For that reason, it is best to find a seat that fits your body and style of paddling so you will be comfortable for a full day on the water.
It absolutely is! However if you are only using it for ocean fishing and launching in a rough surf I would recommend the new X-Factor. The new X-Factor has the two large hatches up front, one of which is enclosed so you can make it a livewell if you would like. It also has less hatches on the surface so less opportunity for water intrusion. I have taken my new Stealth 14 out through the surf several times though and the only water I took on was a few teaspoons from when I didn't close the foot hatches all the way and took on a rogue wave.
Absolutely. I've paddled mine miles out into Lake Ontario and in the Finger Lakes. I also have many friends who take it out into the Gulf of Mexico, and in Florida out into the Atlantic Ocean. It is incredibly stable and has a true 550lb weight capacity. I've loaded it down with myself and a ton of gear. It also paddles great in current. I once was able to paddle upstream through a current that a friend of mine was not able to paddle in his Ocean Kayak Big Game Prowler - despite the fact that he weighs much less than myself and was in much better physical condition at the time.
Most definitely!! You can take it BTB (beyond the breakers) but you need to practice your launch and do it safely. Malibu kayaks were designed for both freshwater and saltwater uses!! Of course with any kayak taken off the beach into the surf, safety is the key...always wear your PFD and have all items secured with a leash to prevent from going over if a wave breaks on top of you.
Yes, you can use this in the ocean. Just remember after every use, it is recommended to thoroughly rinse with water. After paddling in saltwater, brackish or polluted water, pay special attention to rinsing the foot pegs and all hardware with plenty of fresh water. This is a great kayak for fishing, recreational exploring, day play, fitness, and diving/snorkeling. Thanks
