The LT version is also sleeker aesthetically and due to the lighter weight is slightly higher performing and a little more stable than the original Cuda 12. This new version maintains the deck features that everyone loves from the Cuda 12 – central hinging hatch, rod for various rod and tackle storage options and adds a couple of new features to help the angler out, including new Yakattack tracks! 12’11″Long by 32″ wide.
