WHAT'S IN STOCK? (This link takes you to the OZone online inventory. There you can select your canoe model, Canada, and Hana Hou Paddlesports to see we have in stock.)
The Volare (which means to fly) was designed for bump riding and for larger paddlers in the flat. While the Kahele is great for flat to small water and lighter paddlers in the surf, the Volare is designed for medium to rough water and larger paddlers in the flat.
The Volare, at 19’-6”, is 3” longer than the Kahele, but has a waterline that is 6” shorter, giving a bit more rocker. The Volare has additional volume under the seat, slightly wider at the waterline. The cockpit has been lengthened and widened. The rudder is further forward to improve control in the surf.
The Volare is the first Ozone Built production OC-1 to incorporate an adjustable footbrace. The rider can calibrate the trim of the canoe for his height, weight, and water conditions. With this feature, cockpit placement is no longer a compromise.
“We looked at the best parts of the Kahele, and designed a fuller boat for bigger conditions and bigger paddlers maintining the flatwater speed the Kahele is known for. Our goal is to help paddlers to find their best stroke, be physically comfortable and have the most fin, in as many conditions as they like. The Volare is our latest innovation in the evolution of the OC1."
