Silverbirch Broadland 16 Duralite Open Canoe

Drawing on the classic lines and proven design characteristics of a traditional Prospector canoe, the Broadland is a true all rounder and a real workhorse.

Silverbirch have optimized the chine, camber, and sidewall profile from the original Prospector design to increase both primary and secondary stability – making the Broadland a confidence inspiring canoe to paddle.

A carefully considered rocker profile, and a symmetrical hull form ensure both the Broadland 15 and 16 paddle well either tandem or solo.


Length: 4845mm / 15’11”

Width at gunwale: 922mm 36.25”

Max width: 934mm 36.75”

Rocker bow & stern: 62mm 2’5”

Depth bow & stern: 520mm 20.5”

Depth middle: 370mm 14.5”

The outer skin is made with an incredibly stiff and tough whitewater grade plastic – the best Silverbirch can find, the foam has been optimized to have a lower density, giving a thicker core than that used in Duracore, and the material distribution between the layers has been optimised to make the most of the superior materials.

The result? Stiffer, lighter, and yet just as durable!

The noticeable weight saving over the Duracore laminate puts many models made with Duralite into close competition with more expensive canoes produced with composite or royalex construction methods.

Many upgrades are available, wooden gunwhales can be added (further reducing the weight) and enhancing the appearance for £249, a wooden kneeling thwart can be added for £49, a 3D sculpted centre yoke can be added for £59. Please call us to discuss your exact requirements.
