Wenonah Canoe New Zealand

Solo Canoes

PRISM - Performance -16'6ft, Graphite Ultra-light 14.4kg

Prism

The Prism is Wenonah's most popular composite solo canoe. Incredibly versatile, it'll take you comfortably over all kinds of waters. Blending efficiency, stability, capacity, and finesse, it's ideal for cruising with a light load, but also has the volume needed for medium-length trips. Wilderness Canoe Trust has only one Prism in NZ, its a beautiful black carbon model with stunning wood gunnels. One fast stunning canoe!

Canoe & Kayak Magazine said it well when they wrote, " The Prism is all about glide and speed. It's a lean boat that tracks the best of those reviewed, yet will turn quickly enough, and returns to a stable position more readily than other fast canoes."

SOLO PLUS - All Round - 16'6ft, royalex 28kg or 18kg in Kevlar Ultra-light

Solo Plus

For people who want both the freedom of a solo canoe and the companionability of a tandem, we designed the Solo Plus. It works well both ways. As a solo, it's a stable, efficient touring hull with the capacity to carry a tent, food, barrels, and fishing gear for a week. Paddled tandem, it's an efficient performance design that makes getting there together a pleasure. If you're looking to get two canoes for the price of one, the Solo Plus is the boat for you.

WILDERNESS - All Round - 15'4ft, royalex 22kg or 14.4kg in Kevlar Ultra-light

Wilderness

Named in remembrance of Dick Proenneke, a legendary wilderness man who spent 30 years of his retired life living alone in the wilds of Twin Lakes, Alaska, the Wilderness is a solo canoe that can take you far away from it all. Brilliantly designed for extended solo trips it portages well, paddles efficiently, carries plenty of gear and gives a dry ride in rough waters. Its well rounded stability and moderate rocker make it a great down-river boat while inspiring confidence whether on a loaded tour or evening paddle.

FUSION - Solo fishing - 13ft, royalex 20.7kg

Fusion

The Fusion is a uniquely designed solo blending features of both a canoe and kayak for recreation and fishing. It can be paddled with a double or single blade paddle and its foot controlled rudder makes maneuvering a cinch. The padded high back seat comes standard and allows for hours of comfort. 

Lighter, quicker, and easier to manoeuvre than any fishing kayak, the Fusion also runs drier and holds more gear while keeping it all readily accessible. Designed for personally accessorise- rod holders and storage trays for a truly customised craft.
