The Broadlands draws heavily on the influence of the Classic 'Prospector' style of canoe, mixed with modern materials and hull shapes to create a seamless blend of performance, comfort, carrying capacity, style and durability.
Silverbirch have carefully optimized the chine, camber and sidewall profile to increase both primary and secondary stability, helping to make a confidence inspiring canoe that is a dream to paddle no matter what your skill level. The rocker profile and symmetrical hull ensure the Broadlands 15 paddles well solo and tandem, loaded or un-loaded.
The outer skin is made with an incredibly stiff and tough whitewater grade plastic – the best Silverbirch can find, the foam has been optimized to have a lower density, giving a thicker core than that used in Duracore, and the material distribution between the layers has been optimised to make the most of the superior materials.
The result? Stiffer, lighter, and yet just more durable!
The noticeable weight saving over the Duracore laminate puts many models made with Duralite into close competition with more expensive canoes produced with composite or royalex construction methods.
