BASE

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.

BEST AWARD WINNING DESIGN

The 1450 Range is a result of decades of compact Stabicraft® evolution. The 1450 is simply the best 14-foot boat we have ever produced.

Keeping you dry while comfortably seated

Broadhead Coamings

The 1450 Explorers Broadhead Coamings offer a wide platform to sit while at rest and keep you dry while underway. With a large internal volume, you can store all matter of gear, and the large coaming cut-out at the bow gives you the ability to sit and remain well protected from the elements comfortably.

Large unobstructed floor space for you and your gear

4mm (5/32”) Welded Treadplate Floor

The 1450 Explorer boasts a fully welded treadplate floor positioned as high and wide as possible, giving you and your equipment an extensive floor surface area. You and your passengers will feel sure-footed on the 4mm (5/32") thick floor, whether underway or at rest and in almost any sea condition.

You can never have too many rodholders!

8 Aluminium Rodholders

The 1450 Explorer is equipped with eight aluminium rodholders – 4 angled versions in the Broadhead Coamings and four vertical versions in the bow. The angled versions allow every angler a good spread while fishing, and the vertical versions are perfect for storage when travelling to and from your favourite spots.
