Concinnity” - the skillful and harmonious arrangement or fitting together of the different parts of something

Truly, the Sportduo 13 is an example of “concinnity”!  Lean entry lines, pretty curves fore and aft, attractive shear, wood outfitting . . .  synergy that produces a unique watercraft.

Effortless cruising with room to stretch your legs.  Superb tracking makes the Sportduo 13 an excellent choice for a thirty minute sunset paddle or day-long cruising.


Confidence Building Stability

Rewarding Responsiveness

Surprising Speed

May Also Be Paddled Solo

The Sportduo 13 is atypical for a tandem -- it’s quite responsive and quick while exhibiting stability that will inspire confidence for novice paddlers and comfort for those with experience.

Whether fishing, taking photos or stalking wildlife, the Sportduo tracks extremely well even at very slow speeds.  This translates into the ability to glide toward your objective (photo op, rising trout, etc.) without constant steering or paddle strokes that spook wildlife.

The Sportduo . . .

~ Capable of significant loads without

    compromising performance

~ Surprising speed gets you there with less


~ Dozens of comfortable seating options

~ Adjustable footrests for both paddlers

~ Casual paddling; fishing; distance cruising;

    backwater exploring -- the Sportduo makes it

    all possible without needing a crane or a

    couple of weightlifters to load the boat onto

    your vehicle -- portaging a mile or more

    isn’t an issue!

~ Fishing remote locations becomes a whole

    new experience when two people can share

    the same boat that weighs as little as 18 lbs!

Both photos showing a Sportduo 13 loaded with just under 400 pounds.  While the design isn’t intended for nasty paddling conditions with high winds and large waves, it’s a very capable hull.

The speed, capacity, stability and light weight open an immense new world of paddling opportunities . . .

all without the 75+ pounds of a typical tandem canoe.
