Light, Strong, Beautiful Custom-Built Kevlar Canoes

Custom Series Canoes and Kayaks

The Custom Series is a unique new build process from Nighthawk Canoes resulting light weight, high-performance boats, that are highly customizable, including design specs and sizes.

Custom Series boats are all built to order.  Models exist for kayaks and canoes, and specialty or original boats can be requested for a small additional fee.


Composite Construction:  A combination tough epoxy resin and carbon fiber, kevlar® and fiberglass are used for all custom series boats.  Impressively lightweight, with a rigid hull for predictable handling, and gorgeous composite finish.  Kayaks are finished in carbon fiber with your choice of  brightly colored highlights on the top deck.  Open-top boats (canoes and similar), can use any of the Nighthawk Canoes finish options.

Custom Canoes, rowboats and other boats are available.

Kayak Models:

Corvus -series touring kayaks.  Sizes: 17’4″, 16’6″ and 15’8″  Sleek-paddling kayaks, with strong tracking, and surprising stability.  Excellent for long-distance cruising, or day-tripping.  Custom sizes available for larger or smaller paddlers.

Lynx -series transitional kayaks.  Sizes: 14’6″, and 13’3″.  Outstanding all-around kayaks.  For paddlers who want a larger / more comfortable cockpit, more stability, easier entry, and more compact size, but still have efficient touring performance.  Stable, docile handling, while preserving good touring and cruise performance.
