hōu 17 Open Canoe

Availability: Out of stock

This boat is a speed machine! This boat is as amazing as the hōu-13 is fun.  Designed with the explorer in mind and especially the explorer who wants to get there efficiently and quickly.  It’s a sublime balance between load carrying and efficient paddling. This boat eats up the miles with ease. A fantastic long distance fast expedition boat that paddles well when substantially loaded. Alternatively it paddles amazingly as a fast day boat.

As for the style, it’s the great modern blend of flattish hull, slight curvature and rocker allowing for manoeuvrability when required but focusing mainly on making forward paddling easy. Simply it’s a longer, more efficient, slightly sleeker version of the brothers 15 and 16. People who have paddled it in the past always remark on how great it feels for such a large boat. If you want a boat that will look after you on a long trip, this is the one.
