Souris River Canoes Quetico 18.5

Suggested Retail:
$3,495.00 USD
We have experienced an increased demand by families and outfitters for a larger capacity canoe. Not only does the Quetico 18.5 allow for high capacity loading, but it retains amazing stability and handling characteristics. Even when heavily loaded, this canoe is easy to paddle. When it comes time to portage, you�۪ll be impressed with how light it is. Other canoes on the market with the Quetico 18.5�۪s capacity and performance do so with a ridiculous increase in overall length. This equates to more handling difficulties both on water and while threading your way through the woods on a portage. The vast majority of Quetico 18.5s are outfitted with three seats. (Price reflects a colour canoe with standard options.)

Owned the Quetico 18.5 Le Tigre for 2 years now and have a 30 plus days of tripping with this canoe. We have two young kids and a Lab and this boat easily holds us and all of our gear for 3+ week trips. On the water it is fast when loaded and handles rough water very well. Big swells or white caps it handles them well while fully loaded and does not ship any water. This is a boat that you can paddle on those days that smaller boats will be staying ashore. It tracks very well; well enough that it is easy to handle with a 6 degree bent shaft at the stern. It is nimble enough to handle moderate moving water, but it is not a whitewater boat. The build quality is outstanding and it is a true wilderness tool. Designed for the job, not to look pretty (still looks nice though). It has been hauled over never dams and had nothing but dry landings. Light, strong and it yields and does not brake, when stressed. Using epoxy and not resin makes all the difference.
