Heritage Series

Refined traditional designs for modern family tripping and touring

Heritage Series - Canadian


H2O Composites Canadian 16/6 Canoe is a close replica of an "early settler canoe" originally discovered in South Western Ontario in the early 1900's. H2O's design embodies the finest characteristics from this exceptional craft along with H2O's own modern refinements... the resulting combination may just be the ultimate "Canadian" canoe.

The essence and versatility of traditional canoes is captured with a symmetrical style hull and re-curved ends, made famous by First Nations Peoples. To reduce wind resistance and maximize efficiency a slightly longer length and narrower beam are carefully combined with sharp entry & exit lines and a lower sheer. The Canadian's shallow arch hull design and shoe keel provide a rare blend of performance and stability sought by many canoe builders - but seldom achieved. An exceptional shoe keel design aids tracking, protects against grounding, while sacrificing little in the way of manoeuvrability.

H2O Canoe Company Canadian 16/6 is a stable, well-mannered and predictable craft, which successfully blends efficiency and a user-friendly nature, while retaining a distinctly traditional "Canadian canoe appearance".
