Maravia Northwind Raft


The Northwind Self-Bailer is 16′ long and 7′ wide with 20″ main tubes diminishing to 16″ at the bow and stern. Diminishing tubes give it a lower profile and great wave-piercing ability. It is a great cargo-hauler, and a dynamite paddle raft for a large crew. If you have paddling in mind, you’ll like the fact that it has 4 sets of thwart knuckles. It is priced and shipped without thwarts, so if you plan to paddle a lot, you’ll need to order some thwarts. The Northwind is made of Maravia’s Class VI material, encapsulated with a seamless Urethane coating that is virtually maintanance-free. 10 year warranty.

*Thwarts sold separately*




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. Install up to 4 thwarts to make it a paddling machine!
