Carbon Fusion Laminate

Stunning, remarkably light boats for those who want the lightest canoe available.

Swift Carbon Fusion canoes are built with an outside layer of clear marine gel coat with Carbon, Kevlar, and Innegra cloth layers sandwiching a durable foam core and rib system. The laminate is fused together with a high impact, flexible Epoxy Vinylester resin system containing an Ultraviolet Ray (UV) inhibitor. These ultra-lightweight boats consist of an outer layer of Carbon fiber coupled with layers of Kevlar and high modulus polypropylene Innegra cloth to generate a hull optimized for lightness.

The Carbon Fusion laminate is available in a variety of stunning carbon finishes.
