General Touring / Champlain

Big water, big loads, big dreams. The Champlain can handle them all. This canoe will haul two adults, a week's worth of equipment and an arsenal of fishing gear, and still have plenty of buoyancy to ride high and dry in wind and waves.

The Champlain is one of our largest tandems--a larger, more stable version of our versatile Spirit II. The Champlain has the efficiency and capacity to haul heavy loads long distances, but is also pleasant to paddle lightly loaded. Its length and efficient design give it good glide and speed, while Its slightly rockered keel-line makes it surprisingly nimble. The Champlain is massively stable and serves up predictable performance in challenging conditions. It's stability and size make it a great choice for larger paddlers.

Consider the Champlain if your adventures will take you to big lakes and open water or if you need an efficient canoe that will handle a mountain of gear.

Ultra-light w/Aramid 46lbs. / USA MSRP $3,899 USD / Canada $4,999 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.
