Northstar Northwind 17 BlackLite Construction
The Northstar Northwind 17 blacklite is Northstar’s most popular tandem tripper. Remarkably maneuverable, yet reassuringly stable. Known to be the most seaworthy, yet fast, canoe available. When other canoes are wind-bound you’ll enjoy the thrill of playing in the waves.
This beautiful canoe has carbon gunnels and laminated thwarts.
Carbon outer with Aramid reinforcements. Combines the stiffness of carbon fiber with the excellent tensile strength of Aramid. Our full wet vacuum bag and foam core allows us to artfully balance strength and weight. For those that want significantly greater durability than StarLite, yet value a lightweight canoe. Exterior resin coated for maximum weight savings.
Weight: 43 lbs.
