For moving silently up remote quiet creeks and rivers to picnic amongst the Willows and enjoy country side not seen by many, we have designed this attractive electric canoe.
Construction uses the strip plank process using computer faired mould shapes and she is powered by a Mini Kota type electric outboard. She can take 3 or 4 adults. She could be fitted with a canopy or with steam power.
