The Langley is built to provide years of maintenance free service. The hull is stiffened with a high-tec ½” vacuum bagged foam core, sandwiched between layers of fiberglass and Kevlar®. This results in a very rigid hull, giving you excellent performance.The Langley features a shallow arch hull with 4-5″ of rocker, and excellent initial stability. The stern paddler can easily control the canoe in most conditions. Add a knowledgeable bow paddler and the Langley can turn on a dime. The stern paddler sits elevated on a molded bucket seat built in to the end cap of the canoe. This offers a clear line of sight over other paddlers.
In normal conditions, the Langley will easily handle 14 paddlers, with the option of adding 2-3 kids in the middle of the wider center seats. For additional flotation, the contoured fiberglass seats are built with a 4.5″ thick block of foam across the entire width of the seat. This, combined with flotation tanks in either end of the canoe, gives the Langley hundreds of pounds of positive flotation.
The 51″ width of the Langley allows two hulls to fit side by side on a standard 8.5′ trailer. We offer trailers that can carry up to three Langley’s. A sail rig is an optional extra. Add a sail rig to your Langley and enjoy the ride! Sail rigs are available for all of our Big Canoes. Providing a stable ride with exceptional performance, the Langley ensures years of maintenance-free service, and is a great addition to any camp or outfitter canoe program.
Large canoes are often referred to as WAR Canoes, particularly in articles written in the early 1900’s. Today we often refer to them as ‘Big Canoes’ encompassing the many 22’+ styles and shapes paddled in North America today. Clipper builds large canoes from 22' to the 39' Pacific Dancer.
