    Why Buy From Light As Air Boats

    The largest of Merrimack Canoes, Traveler 17' is designed to take you as far as you need to go, whether it’s a picnic on a sandbar with the family or a multi-week expedition. 

    Traveler 17' is a mellower version of the Prospector; it’s a bit more stable, a bit less pointy, and overall offers a lot of capacity for a comfortable trip. Its shallow bottom arc lets you easily glide across the water whether empty or heavily loaded.

    Traveler 17" can be fitted with an optional 3rd seat. In spite of its ample capacity, the Traveler canoe weighs less than 60 pounds. Whether you’re transferring the canoe into the water on unstable footing, or trekking across an uneven portage, the canoes weight remains manageable even alone. Each boat is laid-up with your choice of modern composites and classic woodwork; fiberglass, or kevlar and carbon fiber, are combined to offer an excellent balance of durability, rigidity, and weight, and are wrapped in a stunning gel coat to create the most stunning canoe on the water. Cherry ribs and hardwood ash appointments from the gunnels to the yoke recall the classic look and craftsmanship of canoes in the last century, without sacrificing modern performance.
