The Northwind is one of the bigger boats Maravia makes. The reduced tube size in the bow and stern adds extra room for paddlers and gear with plenty of room to fill. You will appreciate the reduced wind resistance of the smaller tubes on those upstream wind afternoons. Come with a full 10-year warranty, Maravia’s TOUGH Class VI base fabric and the best URETHANE coating on the market – over 40 times the abrasion resistance of PVC and over 15 times the abrasion resistance of Hypalon. Thwarts are not included with price but raft can fit up to 4 thwarts to make it a paddling machine!
