Trim Systems


ALUMINUM TRIM

Aluminum Trim

Hard-anodized strength aluminum gunwales, finished with durable ABS end caps. This trim system is light, strong and attractive.

CARBON KEVLAR TRIM

Carbon Kevlar Trim

Our unique process enables us to infuse the canoe hull and gunwales as one part by creating a bond between the hull and trim. Lightweight, stunning and maintenance free.

CHERRY TRIM

Nothing enhances the look of a canoe more than wood trim, and Swift prides itself in the high quality of our wood work.

Laminates


EXPEDITION KEVLAR

Expedition Kevlar

A strong, lightweight laminate for wilderness trippers who demand tremendous strength and durability.

Swift Expedition Kevlar canoes are built with an exterior coating of clear marine gel coat with layers of Kevlar fabric, Basalt cloth derived from volcanic rock, and high modulus polypropylene Innegra fiber. These layers and pieces sandwich a durable foam core and rib system, creating a long lasting laminate capable of greater elongation and elasticity without failure than any other composite laminate. Fused together with a high impact, flexible Epoxy Vinylester resin system that contains an Ultraviolet Ray (UV) inhibitor.

The Expedition Kevlar laminate is available in clear coat or with interior and exterior gel coat.

KEVLAR FUSION

Kevlar Fusion

Our most popular canoe laminate with our highest strength to weight ratio.

Swift Kevlar Fusion canoes are built with an outside layer of a clear marine grade gel coat with Polyester, S-glass and Kevlar cloth layers sandwiching a durable foam core and rib system. The laminate is fused together with a high impact, flexible Epoxy Vinylester resin system.

The Kevlar Fusion laminate is available with our vibrant colour cloth finish or solid color gel coat finish.

CARBON FUSION

Carbon Fusion

Stunning, remarkably light boats for those who want the lightest canoe available.

Swift Carbon Fusion canoes are built with an outside layer of clear marine gel coat with Carbon, Kevlar, and Innegra cloth layers sandwiching a durable foam core and rib system. The laminate is fused together with a high impact, flexible Epoxy Vinylester resin system containing an Ultraviolet Ray (UV) inhibitor. These ultra-lightweight boats consist of an outer layer of Carbon fiber coupled with layers of Kevlar and high modulus polypropylene Innegra cloth to generate a hull optimized for lightness.

The Carbon Fusion laminate is available in a variety of stunning carbon finishes.
