The Explorer Ultralite not only embodies the iconic design, but also offers more speed and glide than ever before.

The Explorer Ultralite rounds out the classic Explorer series with a canoe that not only embodies the iconic Explorer design, but also incorporates new, light-weight technology for an impressive combination of speed, glide, responsiveness, capacity and seaworthiness. The aramid hybrid / foam core combination yields higher mileage per forward stroke and easy handling off the river for an amazingly rewarding, low-stress canoeing experience.

Aesthetic features include the trademark bunny raised on the interior floor, a clear gel coat showcasing the cored aramid structure, and stained walnut trim or lightweight aluminum for a visually stunning package. Inspired by the self-reliant lifestyle found deep in the Adirondacks and the Maine Woods of the Northeast and across Canada, the “best all around” design of the canoe world gets a little better with the Explorer Ultralite.
