1450 package image

The 1450 Explorer is longer, wider, and a more stable version of its predecessor. It still gives you flexibility with a spacious tiller steer setup and features like the forward seating, alloy rod-holders, and Stabicraft multi-holders as standard. It is the most well-appointed sub-5-meter open boat in its class. An absolute beast of a boat with lots of storage, the sides are high enough to lean against and wide enough to sit on. Built rigid and very stable.
