Waterman 13'

The Waterman canoes are more than simple open Canadian type canoes; they are a complete canoeing experience - from simply being a family open day canoe to a camping/sailing/portaging craft capable of being used to explore normally impenetrable rivers and creeks. The Waterman 13 canoe is really a small Guide Boat with a beam of 36", and a central hull depth of 13’’. Being wider than the typical Canadian canoe of this length, she is a very roomy stable craft with the capability to carry a good sail area and to be used to carry a lot of baggage or to fish from. The hull design has 3 chines allowing a wide bodied design for stability whilst at the same time having a low water surface area.
