Wenonah Minnesota II 18'6" Canoe

(Tandem Tripping Expedition Canoe Shown Above in Kevlar layup.) 
The most efficient, stable tandem tripping canoe ever.

If you travel in Minnesota's BWCA, or Canada's Quetico Park, you'll see lots of these Jensen-designed canoes. You'll hear rave reviews, too, because the Minnesota II is widely acclaimed by the dedicated paddlers, professional guides, and park rangers of the lake country as the ideal canoe for long trips.

Since we make it to use where week-long outings are typical, we gave this design high capacity and seaworthiness to hold two people with heavy gear and still cope well with lake waves.

Best of all -- and the reason the Minnesota II so popular -- is that it has unmatched performance when loaded. It travels great distances, at high speeds, with less effort than any other tandem performance canoe. And, if built in our Ultra-light Kevlar or graphite, it will make you look forward to portages! We take the Minnesota II on our family trips since nothing else has its combined efficiency, capacity, and lightness.

Canoe & Kayak Magazine noted, "Apart from superb final stability, the best feature is how it returns to course in waves."

While originally designed for use in northern Minnesota, this hull is also ideal for trips on lakes and mild rivers wherever you find them, plus its superb performance and straight tracking make it ideal to paddle lightly loaded just for the thrill of traveling swiftly.
