the Bell Northstar feels a bit like the Penobscot and it is quite a bit lighter in any of the composites that were offered. But, it is out of production, so You'll have to look for a used one. I've owned and paddled both of these boats. The Northstar is probably a bit faster, too.
In the Millbrook line, I have a Souhegan and it is nothing like the Penobscot. It is all about manuevering and not about tracking.
