The Yukon has the capacity to be a good family canoe and is also suited for wilderness tripping.
The appeal of the Yukon is based on its design, low cost and excellent value. The Yukon is a versatile canoe that is built to last and has proven itself in rental use and adventure racing across Canada. This canoe gives you a comfortable feeling, both in its roominess and stability. The Yukon was designed by James van Nostrand – one of the most prominent and reputable canoe designers in Canada.
The Yukon has the capacity to be a good family canoe and is also suited for wilderness tripping. It glides nicely, tracks well and resists being blown around in the wind. In moving water, it is predictable and quick to maneuver. The Yukon’s standard colour is white; other Clipper colours are available for an additional charge. The Yukon offers exceptional performance and will provide years of maintenance-free paddling at an affordable price.
“This is a smooth-riding hull; it doesn’t have blinding speed, but as we got the bow wave curling, the canoe felt solid and dependable…The Yukon ran absolutely silent, absolutely stable, and absolutely comfortable…This large and comfortable boat tracks well and turns on command…We enjoyed a secure ride in the chop. Quartering waves won’t hurt you in this canoe; it holds a course quite well…At 71 pounds, the Yukon falls at the heavy end of the acceptable weight spectrum, but you get a lot of canoe here, and at an unbeatably low price. If you’re looking for a family tandem canoe, I’d rate Clipper’s Yukon as a best buy.”
