The Caribou is fast, nimble, and a pure joy to paddle.
The modified Greenland design with a shallow "V," hard chine hull and a low deck profile has developed a cult-like following of paddlers from all over the world. This unique hull design offers unusually high initial stability. The narrow beam and the low deck offer reduced windage and a sporty appeal.
The Caribou features a clean deck arrangement with flush hatches fore and aft. Recessed deck fittings accommodate full deck rigging and safety perimeter lines. The seat comes with a comfortably padded backband. The easy-to-enter cockpit is molded with padded thigh braces shaped to fit a wide range of paddler sizes. A skeg is standard on the Caribou and when deployed, allowing this nimble craft to track harder when in adverse conditions.
