Thank God , another Marvel owner. I was starting to think that I was the only one. I have no idea why the Marvel seems to be the least popular boat in the Native lineup.
You know, my .02 on that is that Native pretty much gears it's boats more toward the fisherman than any other group, and while the Marvel is a very stable boat, the anglers out there are more likely to be drawn to the open top, mega capacity and uber-stability of the Ultimate and other models for that pursuit. So I guess it makes sense that Marvel owners would be in the minority among those who buy Native boats. I don't do a whole lot of fishing, but I am all about a nice paddle without concerning myself with falling out of the boat :wink: , so the Marvel definitely fills the bill for me.

You probably hit the nail on the head Steve. I bought my Ultimate two years ago as a stable fishing platform that I could handle myself. It was totally to my surprise how much water you could cover and how much fun I had just paddling. So now I have my Marvel for paddlin and my Ultimate for fishin. Gotta Love It.
Sounds like the best of both worlds!

I'm a new member to this forum (this is my first post) and we're now considering a Marvel 12 purchase.
I have a Magic 12 that I bought used a few months ago. I couldn't be happier with that find.
Herself has an older LiquidLogic Saluda 12 (sit-inside) that she really likes BUT ......
We went camping at Jordan Lake this weekend and she's now determined that she wants my seat. Not my boat mind you, she likes the sit-inside idea, she simply wants my seat. Understandable - as it's truly the best kayak seat I've ever sat my own seat on. But in spite of a 35 year marriage and all she's contributed to the success of that, she ain't gettin' mine.
So when we got home Monday afternoon, we began a web search and the Marvel 12 quickly rose to the head of her hit parade. It's gratifying to hear good comments on that boat from folks on this forum as there is little info elsewhere (including from the Native site) that actually "describes" the boat to laymen like us. I'm quite surprised to find such little information out there on what appears to be a really good boat.
We're only about an hour's drive from Greensboro so we may very well head on over to GetOutdoors and have them try to make us a deal.
But only after she gets to try out her own seat! :-)
