General Touring / Aurora

We designed the Aurora for exploring, day-tripping, and moving water adventures. The Aurora is a downsized version of the Spirit II--a nimble 16-foot canoe with plenty of stability and efficiency.

The Aurora is shorter than the Spirit, but still carries a load. It turns quicker in moving water and is ideal for exploring Northwoods rivers. Like the Spirit, the Aurora has an efficient hull that glides smoothly across the water, confidence-inspiring stability and predictable performance in wind and waves. There's good reason the Aurora is among our best selling canoes.

T-Formex - 69lbs. / USA MSRP $2,199 USD / Canada $2,799 CAD
T-Formex canoes are manufactured from multi-laminate sheets, painstakingly designed specifically for each model. All include a closed-cell, rigid foam core providing structure and buoyancy. T-Formex canoes are incredibly tough and very affordable. This makes them the ideal choice for sportsmen, whitewater paddlers, families and kids, or anybody who wants a very durable canoe. These canoes are much lighter than polyethylene or aluminum canoes and can be built in nearly limitless designs. We offer many models in T-Formex, ranging from cost-conscious touring and sport canoes, to robust whitewater assault canoes.

Ultra-light w/Aramid 39lbs. / USA MSRP $3,699 USD / Canada $4,699 CAD
Ultra-light hulls are stiff and incredibly light. They are ideal for speed and distance paddling and for all people or conditions that demand the lightest gear. In our Ultra-light construction a structural-foam core and ribs are laminated into the hull and sides. We also add extra fabric layers to strengthen specific targeted areas. Aluminum plates are strategically laminated into the hull. Seats, footbraces, and all hardware is then riveted into these plates. This gives a very secure connection and eliminates rivet heads on the exterior. Aramid, the fiber used for aerospace, body armor and bulletproof vests, is amazingly light and strong. We've used it for more than 30 years to construct extremely light and tough canoes. Wenonah Canoe is the worlds largest maker of canoes using Aramid.
