Is it a Bomber? A Ted Bell 17? A Bear 17? Could be any or all of them. Northstar couldn’t follow the lead of every other canoe company and call this model a Prospector, even though it is our most versatile design. The B 17 will handle a month in the wilderness or carry the whole family for floats on the local river. You can load it with four barrels and enjoy its moving water performance on an expedition. Or you can enjoy its safe, stable reassurance while day-paddling when the two kids and Lassie are all hanging over one side of the canoe watching Mom land a walleye.

All Aramid. Northstar's 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.


Substantial Innegra with an inner blanket of Aramid. Innegra has excellent impact absorption, great flex and good abrasion resistance. A full wet vacuum bag makes a durable, reasonably light canoe. Multiple layers of Innegra with no foam core or ribs means a canoe capable of extended river tripping and expedition whitewater. An extremely durable lamination with far better performance than Royalex. Exterior resin coated because gel coat chips and cracks when subjected to substantial impacts.


Proprietary carbon outer with Aramid reinforcements. Combines the stiffness of carbon fiber and the excellent tensile strength of Aramid. Northstar's 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.
