North Water Field Office: 2007 EXPEDITION VEHICLE

One of the best things about real outdoor companies is that we are real outdoor people. We spend time in the same environment that our equipment is made for. Our work takes us beyond the desk and factory floor. When that happens, our field office enables North Water to do what we do best - making gear that is truly built for life.

Our North Water Field Office is used to access remote areas, visit dealers, as well as provide a base camp for paddling and general expedition use related to on going promotion of North Water gear and equipment. This vehicle is truly expedition ready. This vehicle is a culmination of two of the world’s top expedition vehicle manufactures. Unicat of Germany and Global Expeditions of North America. All systems are as new, electrical systems have been installed by a certified marine electrical engineer. This vehicle accommodates two people in comfort with a 3rd sleeping area if required. The 20 foot long footprint allows for easy parking. The cab over chassis gives you a turning radius of a sedan making it great for both off road and the narrow streets for village and city and off-road navigation.
