With over 50 years of experience in canoe manufacturing, Mad River has time and again proven themselves as innovators of the market. The Explorer is built for long journeys, longer and relatively thinner than other canoe designs, it provides incredible tracking for days- or weeks-long trips. However, this does not mean you could not use it for a simple day out on the water with the family; versatility is the name of the game with the Explorer. The lighter frame does not sacrifice durability, as the fiberglass hull is incredibly scratch and punch resistant.
