This kayak is a rebadged Perception Prodigy 12 built for LL Bean. I also own a Wilderness Systems Pungo 120 and wanted another 12 footer for my wife or friends to use. I bought both boats during Bean's 20% off sales and have been very pleased with the two of them. The Manatee is very stable and I find the seating system to be as comfortable as the Pungos. The cockpit is large and easy to enter and exit. For a very reasonable price, you get a stable, comfortable kayak that tracks well. I would recommend this boat wholeheartedly.

I purchased the Pungo 120 during LL Bean's boat sale. I had originally planned on buying the Bean Manatee 12 but store stock was all sold. I spent a little more on the Pungo but the features make up for it. The Phase 3 AirPro Seating System is by far one of the most comfortable seats available. Fully adjustable with ventilated padding, it makes any length trip a pleasure. The hinged rear hatch is also a great feature, easy to operate and no chance of losing the cover. Stability and tracking are also superb, and the large cockpit opening allows cramp-free movement. I am actually saving up for another one for my wife. Highly recommended...
