Paddlers on Fire: What Our Ambassadors Are Saying About the Phoenix  


Here, we ignite the passion for paddling with the voices of our incredible ambassadors, here's what they have to say about this revolutionary canoe:

Lyndsay Mcphee

Hou would have known? The Hou Canoes Phoenix has completely shocked me with how well it handles in open water. I was apprehensive about it as I get on so well with the Prospector, but this little beauty does it all. 

From paddling in the wind to, sailing to tracking, I can’t find anything but good things to say about it. It’s so manoeuvrable and quick across the water. 


My mega highlight of the Phoenix is that it’s the boat that’s finally given me complete independence, it’s the only canoe I’ve been able to roll on the ground, pop on my shoulders and move around very easily. 


I’m so excited to see what else it’s got to offer when I get it out on the rivers.

Really, really looking forward to getting to know this new ‘pocket’ prospector. A boat designed for the mad English desire to paddle tandem boats solo! Shaving off the weight and piling on the moveability, this should be a game changer for white water performance and open water wind management. Great to have a manufacturer that has understood the ridiculous brief of the modern UK open boater.

Watching canoe paddlers in the UK it seems the majority of dedicated canoeists want to paddle solo, and with kit, be that day trips or multi day trip. The existing canoes on offer are all on the large side or too small and it just seems there is a hole in the offerings from all manufacturers.

 

Some imported canoes are about the right size but are built for rivers unlike our UK rivers, the boats either have too much or not enough rocker, or the construction materials just don’t quite work as well as they could for the UK where our rivers are smaller and more rocky.

 

So it seems an obvious decision to take our best selling  Prospector and make a smaller version that works well for solo paddling but can also be used as a tandem boat if required.
