Northstar "POLARIS"

  • Sale
  • $ 2,395


The Polaris quickly accelerates and offers a lively paddling experience. Skilled paddlers raved about the performance of its predecessor - the iconic Bell Canoes "Northstar" (name sound familiar?)

If the Northwind 16 is for families or tripping, the Polaris is for couples who want to cover more distance with less effort. What it gives up in primary stability and overall capacity, it more than makes up for in additional efficiency on the water. 

Northstar offers it in three constructions and with two different trim options, offering you the ability to tailor make the boat to your needs. 

Polarises are available in:

  • WhiteGold (50 pounds) : Red, Spruce, or Ivory gelcoat
  • StarLite aramid (38 pounds)
  • BlackLite carbon/aramid (41 pounds)

We stock the Polaris in StarLite with bronzed aluminum gunwales, but can order the other layups and wood trim. Lead time on custom order boats is typically 5 to 8 weeks, sometimes a little longer in summer.
