Whether on a family outing, fishing trip or overnight float, the Mad River Explorer 16 LT Royalex(R) canoe will help make memories for years to come. Featuring an overall weight of 65 lbs., the lean Explorer 16 LT offers all the durability of older versions with the same friendly performance. Royalex multilayer composite offers excellent abrasion resistance and springs back from impacts. Royalex also makes a much lighter weight hull than standard polyethylene and offers excellent strength and toughness. Exterior layers of vinyl sandwich interior layers of ABS plastic and undergo heating and molding, producing a superior-quality watercraft material. Symmetrical, shallow-V hull offers predictable handling, excellent tracking and superior performance in rough water. Moderately rockered hull offers a great balance between maneuverability and speed. Lightweight aluminum gunwales enhance stiffness and performance; molded carry handles at bow and stern decks aid in transport. The Mad River Explorer 16 LT Royalex canoe features web seats, a shaped yoke and durable, polyethylene decks.
The Explorer 16 TT by Mad River Canoes is a boat that tracks well, is incredibly stable in rough conditions and will handle easily with a load full of gear. The perfect boat when you want to share your experience with your family or friends. Made with a durable Triple Tough polyethylene, that is the same material used on whitewater kayaks, so you know you can trust its rugged nature. A light, stiff hull gives you the ability to navigate in fast or choppy currents and vinyl gunwales are added for torsional rigidity. Rock Creek likes these canoes because they follow our beliefs in construction; no harmful formaldehyde gas is emitted during the molding process!
