Description Particulars

The 18’6” Marathon open canoe has been designed for serious long distance paddling. She has 5 planks per side and uses the stitch and tape method of construction for ease, low cost and lightness. Her hull shape is asymmetric giving her a low drag shape with buoyancy positioned to keep her at level trim when moving quickly—and we have given her some tumblehome in the topsides to make paddling easier.

Below is a beautiful example of a Marathon by Eric Nelson - the photo also shows one of our 15'7" Peterborough's again built by Eric Nelson - Eric commented that the Marathon "tracks like a train and is ridiculously quick" and the Peterborough is both "agile and a pleasure to paddle".
