Summary

     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 16 paddles well solo and tandem, loaded or un-loaded.

    Deep Dish Yoke End Grabs Lacing Ash Gunwales Kneeling Thwart
    The deep dish yoke is contoured to provide comfort whilst carrying the canoe on the shoulders as well as providing stiffness to the boat. End loops provide a strong attachment point for painters and a attachment point in the case of a whitewater rescue.

    Two lacing options are available:

    Bow and stern lacing - for attaching air bags or blocks.

    Full length lacing - allows attachement points for airbags or blocks as well as other equipment being carried in the boat.

    Every canoe with ash gunwales is hand finished with pride at Silverbirch's Norfolk production facility.

    After carefully fitting the ash profiles, the gunwales are planed and oiled by hand, and then matched with ash end plates, ash handles and carrying yoke, and webbing bound ash seats. Not only does it give a beautiful, natural finish, but is several kilos lighter than the vinyl alternative.

    A kneeling thwart provides a comfortable and efficient paddling position for a solo paddler.

    Duralite

    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.
