Freedom 17
a modern efficient tripping canoe

The Freedom 17 features an asymmetrical hull with a slim bow, a maximum beam just aft of the middle and filled out stern sections to reduce the resistance. The gently rockered profile lets the boat turn with ease. Because of the slight tumblehome this canoe is a wonderful solo boat, but most of the time it can be found heading off on canoe trips with two avid canoeists on board. A fast responsive tripping canoe that's also easy to build.

The Freedom line of canoes are built in high quality synthetic materials by Bluewater Canoes, Guelph, Ontario.
