Product Details
A highly-maneuverable canoe that is a down-sized version of our Spirit II. The Wenonah Aurora puts the wide versatility and superb performance of its top-selling model, the 17' Spirit II, into a more-compact package. While it's a foot shorter, the Aurora is as deep in the center as the Spirit II, and is also deep in the ends. It has greater total buoyancy than you might expect, and it carries nearly the load that the Spirit II will. Not meant for heavy expeditions, the Aurora does suit typical trips well. It's an easy-paddling hull that retains sufficient freeboard when loaded. Perhaps the Aurora's best feature is its good blend of initial and final stabilities. While steady enough for hunting or fishing, and to haul kids or a dog who may jump around, it's very seaworthy for a mid-sized canoe. Its carefully-contoured, shallow-arch hull is the reason. While the choice of 16' canoes in the marketplace is vast, others have a less-sensible bottom profile. Compared to typical flat-bottomed hulls, the Aurora's shallow-arch design has a good steadiness on center but has great stability and better handling on waves. It also paddles easier and glides farther than most comprable models in its class. If your situation dictates a 16' model, and varied types of paddling, no other design serves so well for so many uses. It is the workhorse and utilitarian choice for one seeking a Royalex 16 footer.
