H20 Canoe Company – Paramount 16/6 Review
The Paramount 16/6 is the mid-sized addition to H20’s asymmetrical series and can be noted as one our favourite boats in the lineup. With its popular length, moderate rocker, and keel-less, shallow arched hull, the Paramount 16/6 is a canoe that does everything well!
Where the shape of the hull improves maneuverability, the straight-lined design and flared ends increases the tracking and efficiency. As such, the Paramount 16/6 is a faster boat than its little sister the Edge 16 with comparable responsiveness.
As an asymmetrical canoe, the Paramount 16/6 is geared towards intermediate to advanced paddlers who require a quick, nimble canoe that is great for camping or touring. However, its user-friendly design make for the perfect canoe that a beginner can continually grow with.
