Clipper Canoes Escape
14 feet 6 inches
44-54 pounds, depending on materials
The Escape is great for fishing, photography or bird watching. The comfortable seats allow paddlers to sit instead of kneel. It has a near vertical bow and stern to aid in tracking. The Escape’s short length allows it to maneuver easily in tight spots. Its light weight and short length make the Escape easy to load and transport on the smallest of vehicles and is easy to load and transport on the top of 5th wheel trailers.
This canoe can be easily paddled solo. Solo paddlers will often order the Escape with a bench seat in the bow, allowing them to paddle from the bow facing the stern, while being seated in a position closer to the center of the canoe. This results in a better trimmed canoe.
The Escape, designed with a shallow arch hull, is stiffened with cross ribs in the fiberglass layup and a vacuum-bagged foam core in the Kevlar® layup. Both provide stiff hulls that help maximize performance and maneuverability. Take an “Escape” from the everyday bustle of life and you’ll never regret it.
