The Northwind 16 offers a wide variety of paddling possibilities. This is the canoe for you: if you love day trips, but might load it up for a week; love fishing but might need to maneuver through light rapids; love to paddle with a partner but might want to go solo. The Northwind 16 turns on a dime, yet tracks as straight as a true north compass bearing.

All 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.
Color: Northstar proprietary Aramid weave.
Elegant carbon gunwales with integrated carbon end decks; walnut and ash laminated thwarts and flat yoke; walnut and ash laminated contoured web seats hung on walnut drops; stem mounted tie down loops. Full outwales mean a stiffer and drier canoe. E6 trim reduces a canoe’s weight by 1 lb. We do not recommend E6 trim for whitewater.
*Note: Picture shows aluminum trim. Carbon Trim is much nicer.
