Designed for calm water to small surf conditions, as well as emerging paddling communities.
The Draco is a low-volume canoe with ample rocker for lakes, rivers, and light downwind conditions. Aesthetics and features are simplified to keep the canoe as light as possible.
“We set out with a clear intention to better serve calm water markets…As we began conceptualizing the design we noticed an increase of OC1 participation from the dragon boat community due to the pandemic. With that in mind, we designed different features and benefits to cater to this unique dragon boat community, in addition to our initial goals.”
The ama can be rigged on either side of the canoe to accommodate Dragon Boat time trials and more. Paddlers will have the option to rig their canoe on whichever side they prefer based on paddling style and level.
In addition, the Draco will have the versatility to rig with an ama on both sides simultaneously.
Customers will have the option to purchase an after-market removable single-position footplate. The footplate will allow shorter paddlers to keep their weight in the correct position.
