Northstar Canoes


All you need for a week or a day.
Northstar Canoes - B16 IXP
Item: NOR114-36009P
Price: $2,795.00
Availability: More Information


Sixteen feet is all you need for a week or a day, and the Northstar B16 can handle a wilderness trip or nightly family cruise. It’s a full hull with plenty of capacity in a short package. Like its sibling the B17, you can expect a dry boat with predictable behavior in moving water thanks to the symmetrical rocker. The B16 lends itself to solo paddling since Northstar eliminated the bow thwart.



Substantial Innegra with an inner blanket of Aramid. Innegra has excellent impact absorption, great flex, and good abrasion resistance. A full wet vacuum bag makes a durable, reasonably light canoe. Multiple layers of Innegra with no foam core or ribs means a canoe capable of extended river tripping and expedition whitewater. An extremely durable lamination with far better performance than Royalex. Exterior resin coated, because gel coat chips and cracks when subjected to substantial impacts.

Color: Innegra weave
