The Chieftan is a design legend. This canoe shape was originally designed as a trading vessel so had to paddle well on both open water such as lakes, and also to paddle well on moving/white water rivers. It had to paddle well unloaded but also had to be able to carry a good load on the return journey. (Its a larger version of our well respected Prospector) Today we still want the same from our canoes, all be it for different reasons. This boat is a joy on lakes and rivers, and will give you a dry, predictable ride whether you are solo or loaded up for a multi day trip. You can load up to 4 people and it carries a great deal of kit too.
This classic design is all things to all paddlers, the ultimate all round big load carrier.
If you are looking for a single all in one boat that carries a great load but you can also handle solo then the hōu Canoes Chieftan is going to be the perfect choice no matter what kind of water you are eating for.
