Exclusive Design

EZ-Arch Door

A Northwest Boats exclusive innovation. The windshield creates a solid frame around the center bow door. The top is affixed to the frame, not the door, allowing easy opening without having to undo any snaps, zippers or velcro seals.

Family Friendly

Bring the entire family to cruise, fish, camp, wakeboard, or just simply relax. Everyone has a comfortable seat and storage areas to store belongings. Tall sides keep the interior dry and soft or hard tops are available on most models.

Whitewater Ready

Born and bred to navigate the challenging whitewater of the Snake River in Hells Canyon, but highly capable of safely running everything from extreme shallows to class 4 rapids. Stout design and welded aluminum ensures tank-tough strength and performance.


Northwest Boats are built with all-encompassing strength, flawless detail, and strikingly attractive lines. The structural integrity of our welded aluminum boats is unequalled in the heavy-gauge industry. Built to take a beating without ever missing a beat.


It takes years of training to achieve the skill and precision required to weld a Northwest Boat. Our designs demand an equal level of strength and beauty. Look closely for the “stacked dime” appearance of every aluminum weld. It’s the mark of perfection.

Fishing Features

Fish effectively and look good doing it. Northwest Boats feature unique designs, like wrapped rails, split-lid fish boxes, vertical and side-tray rod storage and so much more. For every technique, your tackle will always be close at hand.


Year-round use is an advantage that’s built into every Northwest Boat. Choose a full or partial hard top for the ultimate in comfort, or a convertible marine vinyl folding top that can be fully removed when it's time for summer fun. All tops are 100% watertight.

Made in USA

Northwest Boats always have been and always will be hand-crafted by highly skilled tradesmen and women in Washington State. We take great pride in our American-made heritage. Raw materials are purchased from U.S. vendors whenever possible.


The hull shape of our Freedom and Lightning outboard models features a 28º bow deadrise and 18º transom deadrise for the smoothest, driest ride in all water conditions. The waves and winds are no match for the chop-taming bottom design.
