Silverbirch Broadland 16 Duracore
Drawing on the classic lines of a traditional Prospector canoe, with optimised chine, camber, and sidewall profile to increase both primary and secondary stability - the Silverbirch Broadland 16 is a stable, all-rounder canoe ideal for family touring trips.
With a carefully considered rocker profile, and a symmetrical hull form, the Broadland 16 will paddle well both solo or tandem.
Duracore is a tough and durable three-layer Polyethylene material, made with a tough, UV stable, and abrasion resistant outer skin.
Built to last with a tough, high-density outer skin, a closed cell foam, and a medium density inside skin to help dissipate the energy from impacts.

Every Silverbirch canoe with ash gunwales is hand-finished at Silverbirch's Norfolk production facility. After carefully fitting the ash profiles, the gunwales are planed and oiled by hand, and then matched with ash end plates, ash handles are carrying yoke, and webbing bound ash seats. Ash gunwales provide a beautiful, natural finish and this option is several kilos lighter than the vinyl alternative.
