Silverbirch Broadland 16 Duralite Canoe
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.
Duralite Construction - Stiffer, lighter, and yet just as durable!
The outer skin is made with an incredibly stiff and tough whitewater grade plastic.
The foam has been optimised to have a lower density, giving a thicker core than that used in Duracore

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 and 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.
