Experience performance so singular, so impressive, you're propelled to exhilarating new levels of nautical prowess. Our 218 and 228 Lightning Outboard Series adds chop-taming length to a ride-enhancing, deep vee bottom that handles predictably and confidently under the most challenging conditions. Recognizable from stem to stern are the trademark Northwest Boats construction, roomy interior space, seaworthiness, panache and detail. Designed expressly for the most adventurous and discerning boaters, the Lightning Outboard is built to take an extraordinary watery beating—leaving you free and easy to enjoy the fun.
Even at a glance, the 218/228 Lightning Outboard Series is ruggedly distinctive. Broad dimensions and clever design offer interior space to spare, a feature you'll immediately appreciate. But it's the touches of comfort that will anchor your satisfaction on every trip. Topping the list of standard (not optional) attributes are soft-riding captain's seats, generously cut bench storage seating, ample legroom and ergonomically designed dash and controls. That's the hardened beauty of the all-water drive Lightning Outboard.
