Availability:More Information


Remarkably quick for its length and with rounded chines carrying significant tumblehome, the Cruiser 12.6 has calming stability under any conditions. With a lower profile suited to medium-sized users, the paddling station blends comfort and function using forward-thinking design. Paddling motion is unrestricted by means of a moderate 11 center depth, and the 28 maximum width is tucked just aft of the seat, allowing the paddler to cruise freely and comfortably. There is a deceptively large amount of interior volume, allowing you to pack your necessities with room to spare for longer trips. With a modern bow shape providing seaworthiness and a recurved stem for ultra-modern sleekness, the Cruiser 12.6 is part of a new era in Pack boat design.

Kevlar Fusion

Our most popular canoe laminate with our highest strength to weight ratio.

Swift Kevlar Fusion pack boats are built with urethane acrylate resin that does not incorporate an exterior gel coat. This infusion process produces the highest strength to weight ratio and inter-laminate shear strength of any composite hull in the industry. The hull is comprised of an exterior layer of Polyester, as well as S-glass and Kevlar cloth layers sandwiching a durable foam core and rib system. The laminate is fused together with a high impact, flexible urethane acrylate resin system injected during high-pressure infusion, producing optimal dispersion and laminate consistency.

The Kevlar Fusion laminate is available with multiple vibrant exterior color cloth finishes.
