It's so new we're not really talking about it, other than to say as the name indicates, it brings ultra stability, a plethora of weight capacity for the tournament angler as well as plus sized lads. More to come.

The Titan is a “First with Reverse” Propel Pedal driven bass boat extraordinaire. Large and in charge, the Titan offers unsurpassed stability and ample room and flexibility to move around. Optimal for sight casting with plenty of leverage to reel in the catch, this is a fisherman’s fantasy fulfilled. This boat features easy-to-reach horizontal rod storage with rod tip protection. Elevated First Class Seating is designed for comfortable transitions between standing and sitting, and it can be moved out of the way for a walk-around deck. The boat also features two stern Power Pole mounts for dual anchoring to further increase stability. The Titan can be purchased with a custom motor mount that will accept trolling motors for a power-assisted ride. The image above displays some of the many features found on the new Titan.

The Titan shown is a prototype and not from a final mold so an official weight has not been released, although it will likely be in the low 100's with out drive and seat.

The prototype weighs 125 lbs, so 5 more than a PA14. They are looking to lose a little bit on the production model, though.

Looks incredible, but I think the Slayer Propel LT is the real gem of the show. Unless you're only trailering or have your boat on a dock, the Titan's weight is a real downside!

The weight is going to be up there, but will still be very competitive with the Hobie PA. We have been asking for a couple of years for a big wide boat with rod storage that will compete with the PA...I think this boat will fit the bill. I do agree that the Slayer Propel LT is the gem however.

We, the salt water anglers put kayak fishing on the map years ago and how are we rewarded? Wide kayaks with high seats....not suitable for this salty warrior. Have fun pulling these down a sandy beach and launch in the surf. Not happening. In fact, I think it's worth it to buy the drives and start consulting local kayak manufacturers To have something made that is suitable for salt water open water kayak fishing. The choices of a drive in a lighter sleeker platform is not there.

Native actually polled many fishermen from all realms of fishing and the one area that came up over and over again where there wasn't a specific boat for a specific style of fishing was a bass boat kayak. The Titan will fit this niche very well since most bass fishermen already trailer their bass boats to and from their lakes.  There were still a bunch of fishermen that specifically asked for an off-shore Propel so we will see what they come up with next. Do note that while most of the other kayak companies (with the exception of Hobie) are just now coming out with their first pedal kayak, Native is working on something like their 9th model with several already discontinued. With the introduction of a thermoformed Propel made out of much lighter materials...a BTB/offshore kayak that is made of the much lighter thermoformed plastic could be their next move...but I guess we will have to wait and see what ICAST and OR bring us next year.

I don't see why they don't update the Magic 14.5 with a Propel drive...that was a fast hull that was very seaworthy, still very stable, quiet, and could haul a good load or a big guy or even both with no issues.

Check out the new Santa Cruz Raptor G2. It has a Hobie Mirage drive but is also designed to paddle well.

Any information on the type of rudder it will come equiped with? Hopefully NOT the one the Slayer Propels are sold with otherwise you won't be able to turn it until you reach Cuba.

I saw a short video of the prototype. It does use the same rudder system but they have done some homework on designing the rear end of the boat so it is more responsive in a turn. The boat turns very well for one that size and width...in the video the boat turned 180 in what looked to be about the boat's length or a little more. Native says it has about the same turning radius as the SP10.

Thats still a pretty big circle in my experience!

I like the idea of this hull. It closes the gap on the competition. However, in my mind, the ULTIMATE kayak is a PA hull with all the available accessories & storage for rods etc, with the propel as its propulsion system.

I think they are looking at the growing trend in the micro-skiff market. The skiff makers are growing in number and this boat will have the ability to add not just a trolling motor, but also a small outboard on the back. It has the internal rod storage that gets the rods off of the top of the gunnels and away from your hands while paddling. I tried out one of the Jackson boats last week and noticed I was constantly knocking my rods and reels that were resting in the rod holders along the gunnels with the paddle. Changed my mind about that feature really quick.
