The Prelude is a short responsive boat with lots of volume that evolved from Frankie Hubbard’s Ocoee. It was originally molded by Pyranha but is now rotomolded by Esquif in Canada. It has more speed than the Spanish Fly and Taureau and is very dry. It has the performance of the shorter creek boats but with gunnels and a deck it has the look of a traditional canoe.
