Broadland 16 Duralite
Drawing on the classic lines and proven design characteristics of a traditional Prospector canoe, the Broadland is a true all rounder and a real workhorse.
We have optimized the chine, camber, and sidewall profile from the original Prospector design to increase both primary and secondary stability – making the Broadland a confidence inspiring canoe to paddle.
A carefully considered rocker profile, and a symmetrical hull form ensure the Broadland 15 and 16 paddle well either tandem or solo.
PERFECT FOR SOLO OR TANDEM
The outer skin is made with an incredibly stiff and tough white water grade plastic – the best we can find, the foam has been optimized to have a lower density, giving us a thicker core than that used in DuraCORE, and the material distribution between the layers has been optimised to make the most of the superior materials.
The result? Stiffer, lighter, and yet just as durable!
The noticeable weight saving over our DuraCORE laminate puts many models made with DuraLITE into close competition with more expensive canoes produced with composite or royalex construction methods.
