2015 Heritage 18 CARBON Little River’s Flagship Adventure Craft

Steve and Belinda: first outing, ordered a Heritage 18 Carbon

The Heritage 18 Carbon is now available as a Single or Double, with an ultra light carbon hull and deck that weighs as little as 84 pounds. It’s ideal for those car topping and portaging. This is a refined, detailed high-tech rowing craft. It is our marquis adventure craft.


Heritage 18 Carbon



5 years in the research and development, we quietly made and sold these Carbon marvels all 2011, but did not advertise to get a year’s open market feedback.  The reports are in and all amazing.                                                                                                                  

The Heritage Carbon 18 is ideal for  car topping , portaging, open water racing, or simply giving yourself the best green healthy aquatic exercise known. This is a  simple to use, stable, solid and beautiful vessel, ideal for double rowing and big/tall single rowing.

Like the Classic,  it has a fully molded interior and Patented fold in riggers. This is our best gear, as in the Classic.  It includes a comfortable passenger seating in the bow and stern. The bench is also carbon fiber, and is removable, as is the sliding seat monorail. (an Ultralight 5 pound monorail system is available as an option: includes our lightest weight Carbon seat with a high tech gel pad and ultralight  foot rests). And when you order as

Whitehall Rowboat at Dawson's

The riggers pop out instantly to make carrying on you vehicle a snap. There is  a  molded interior in the Carbon to add rigidity. Standard features include a forward  storage locker, bow and stern eyes, molded in non-skid, patented Fold-in rigger system  (this is the only system you can fold in with the oars installed– makes docking a  breeze). Expect to be impressed in the quality, performance, ease of use.  Equal in speed  to a single rec-shell*, she delivers uncanny stability with speed.
