Sorry...I was going to give a link to a page on their site and I see that they've changed the site a bit and I can't find that info. Is that the one with the integrated gunwales? If so, it seems it would be in the 32# range as I think it a bit lighter than the regular carbon lay up.

Here's a link to the boat:

Nope, swiftech was the heaviest matterial they had. I know it had to be heavier than the 44# expedition kevlar. How much more is what i'm trying to figure out.

I was told under 30 lbs.
Using the CabonFusion with the intergated gunnel system.
The weight of the Mattawa CarbonFusion is 38 lbs

Swiftech was Swift's glass laminate with a syntactic foam core. It was the heaviest of their cored boats when they still used it but I can't find anything in my notes about their weights. Now they use resin injection and a lighter foam core so one can't compare them.

Call or write to Swift. They will know.
