- Product description
Flatwater canoes are designed for speed and directional stability. They have a straight keel and the bow and stern are straight, pointed and low. They cut through the water without any noticeable deviation caused by crosswinds. These canoes are significantly narrower than the all-round canoes. Beginners will need some time to adjust, but if the canoe is primarily used on flat, calm water, even beginners will get much enjoyment from a flatwater canoe.
This is a splendid canoe for two persons with baggage on week-end to week long trips, or for families with two adults and one child.
The canoe is relatively short and has a low profile, making it harder for wind to get hold. The design and size makes it an excellent solo-canoe on lakes and quiet rivers. The low weight and the handy size make it ideal for trips with a lot of portage. This is a fast, easily maneuverable canoe, even for the soloist.
