Set A Course For Adventure In Any Direction.

The Northwest Compass Series has you covered in three ways. Its stout construction ensures consistency, durability and outstanding performance that's perfect for all Northwest waters. Its innovative design ensures plenty of room, seaworthiness and security — even in big water. Moreover, its price offers the best deal in all-welded aluminum boats. On every Compass, you'll find standard features that let you create the best fishing boat, work boat, duck boat or river runner. Then you can customize it with an optional outboard jet transom, center console (18' Tiller only) or countless other features.
