Lake Wallace

Highly Buoyant

Storage & painter
Traditional design, handcrafted, expedition size canoe suitable for
families, camping, fishing, taking the dog or larger loads.

Design Statement

The Malecite 18 was designed when my two children were babies and I could not find a traditional, aesthetic, easy paddling large volume canoe in Australia that was suitable to undertake extended camping trips with two young children and carry two weeks equipment.

The asymmetrical hull provides additional buoyancy where it is needed in the rear. The design offers an excellent compromise between easy paddling, speed and tracking.

The two large buoyancy compartments are fitted with hatches to provide two large, dry storage areas for wallets, jumpers, snacks etc .
