The biggest canoe in the Enigma Canoes range, the Turing 17 is a tough and spacious boat, with excellent stability making it an ideal boat for families or longer expeditions. Ideally suited for calm waters, the Turing makes for an easy canoe to paddle, and will make for a great boat to use on; local canals, idyllic lakes, tranquil lochs etc. This makes it perfect for families looking to enjoy the view.
The longest canoe from Enigma Canoes, the Turing 17 is the perfect companion for long distance paddling, the long waterline pairs beautifully with a shallow "v-shaped" keel and narrow bow and stern, the Turing is engineered for speed. With a low rocker, high sides and narrower beam the Enigma Turing 17 handles well into a head wind and glides off every paddle stroke, making it great for touring. It can take the miles in stride and is comfortable for all day cruising.
Made from the same triple layer plastic which all Enigma Canoes are, the Turing 17 is an extremely robust canoe. The two outer layers are solid plastic, with the centre having a foam matting, designed almost like a honeycomb to trap air inside the hull and give a natural amount of latent buoyancy, making the canoe almost unsinkable.
With plenty of space within the canoe, the Turing 17 has ample room, should you wish to add an extra seat (or two) for additional passengers and can turn it from a tandem canoe to an entire family craft. With a maximum weight capacity of 500kg, there will still be plenty of room for sandwiches and camping kit should you be adventurous to be out overnight. Outfitted with, the above mentioned, two wood webbed seats for excellent comfort for either seated or kneeling paddling, a contoured yoke for eased portaging on ones shoulders if solo carrying, a thwart for attachment of kit and extra rigidity, and carry handles at both bow and stern for use when carrying between paddlers, the Turing 17 is more than ready to get out on the water with.
A fantastic, fast touring canoe for use on calm waters, the Turing 17 is a great canoe for multi-day trips, expeditions or use by families all looking to get out together.
