Overview | Covert 9.3 Hydrolite

Our ground-breaking Covert 9.3 in ultra-light construction!  

A step in the tail of the Covert 9.3 ensures a clean release of water from the stern, which not only reduces drag, but also helps to reduce the tendency for the tail to bog down on boily eddy lines or when getting bounced around by large lateral waves.

The sidewall profile of the boat is also continually curved. This helps boost secondary stability and keeps the waterline width to a minimum.

Ideal for Class III to Class V River Running

Customise Your Saddle

Our Hydrolite edition brings the pinnacle of advanced, lightweight, polyethylene construction to our flagship Covert 9.3 design. We developed a thickness-optimised single layer which takes advantage of the rigidity provided by the minicell bulkhead to create a hull which handles better both on and off the water.

As with our other constructions, every shell is cooked to the perfect temperature by our in-house computer controlled ovens, and then undergoes extensive testing to ensure it is up to the rigours of modern OC1 paddling.

Custom Outfitting

We outfit every boat to suit your requirements with pride in our Norfolk production facility

There is no such thing as a 'standard-use' for a canoe. Each and every paddler has unique set of needs, and each and every boat should be as unique as the paddler using it.

We can help!

We work with an incredible team of paddlers and engineering professionals around the world to design and build the best canoes possible.

Offering you the ability to customise a boat to your exact needs is a natural extension of this passion and allows us to craft something completely unique for you and your needs
