The 18 is a little bit of a freighter, good for larger loads and longer trips, straight tracking and up to big lakes and rivers.
Sometimes more is better. The Northwind 18 offers the same stability as our flagship Northwind 17, but the additional space provides a little more comfort for a third member of the group or the family dog. There’s no need to debate bringing the Dutch oven and camp chairs. The Northwind 18 is ready to haul your gear.

Exterior resin coated for maximum weight savings. Color: Black carbon weave.
StarLiteAll Aramid. Our proprietary yellow and black makes a stunning moiré pattern. Full wet bag minimizes resin and creates the lightest weight canoe available. Foam core, ribs and internal reinforcements make a stiff, efficient hull. The choice of flat-water paddlers everywhere. Exterior resin coated for maximum weight savings.
StarLiteCarbon and Black Innegra co-woven outer with inner blanket of proprietary yellow and black aramid. Our lightest lamination at the expense of some durability, a dream for wet footed portaging. Only available with E6 trim and E6 parts: canoe weights reflects E6/E6 savings. Stealth is lighter than StarLite and has lower impact resistance. Weight savings and wet footed portaging go hand in hand. Many options are not offered with Stealth including: skid plates, adjustable seats, third seats, and kneeling thwarts.
