- 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.
ALLY 17’ is high performances fast canoe that very well matches up to the fastest fibreglass or kevlar canoes. The tumblehome bottom profile and straight keel line makes it tracks straighter in the waves providing excellent side stability. The low profile and the straight bow and stern make it difficult for the wind to get hold of the canoe. The result is superior directional stability under severe conditions.
The ALLY 17’ is mainly an excellent canoe for plain water, meeting all the requirements set for canoes for these conditions. However, due to its high load capacity, it is also well suited for long trips and expeditions in areas without white water. It may be used comfortably by up to 3 people with baggage, but it can also be paddled solo.
