Another proven, classic design, the 16 foot Champlain was designed in the early 1900’s by the renowned Peterborough Canoe Company of central Ontario. If the Prospecteur is the versatile pickup truck of the traditional canoe genre, the Champlain is the sportscar. Popular for cruising and racing, the Champlain’s narrow beam gives it more speed and a responsive feel. It is ideal for tandem canoe tripping and the the narrower width, gentle rocker and smooth chine transition at the ends make wonderful for classic solo paddling.
The graceful lines and excellent performance of the Champlain will give you years of paddling pleasure.
