Enigma Canoes Turing 17 Large Family Open Canoe That is UK Made


Enigma Turing 17

The Enigma Turing 17 is the biggest canoe in the Enigma range and available in red or green. A tough and spacious canoe with comforting stability ideal for families or for long expeditions when the generous carrying capacity enables you to carry heavy loads of camping equipment (or massive picnics!). The Enigma 17 Turing comes as standard with two wood webbed seats but the extra boat length means that there is adequate space to add a third seat (not included) if required.

The long water line length and stable shallow arch low rocker hull, biased towards flatter water like slower moving rivers or the Norfolk Broads rather than white water rapids, means it tracks well and gives it a good turn of speed allowing it to eat up the miles. The robust 3 layer polyethylene and foam construction makes it unsinkable as well as enabling it to stand up to a lot of punishment which also makes it a good choice for hire or adventure centres.

Enigma Canoes are proud to say that all of our ranges is totally UK made, from the fixtures and fittings to the moulding of the hulls. All Enigma Canoes are available in red or green and can be outfitted in a range of configurations to meet almost any requirements.

Enigma Turing 17 Construction

The Enigma Turing 17 is constructed from the best triple layer polyethylene, specifically designed for the marine and watersports industry. Our manufacturer specialises in 'triple shot' manufacturing, which means the products are made in 3 layers of differing polyethylenes (PE) and is known as a 'sandwich'.

Enigma Canoes Triple Layer Ployethylene Plastic Construction Picture

The ‘sandwich’ consists of:

  • An inner layer of a low to mid-density PE;
  • An inner layer core of PE foam and;
  • An outer layer of coloured middle to high density PE.

All Enigma canoes are produced using this three layer sandwich foam technology.

The foam core, in addition to the single layers of polyethylene adds insulation, flotation and increased robustness, stiffness and lightness.

All Enigma Canoes are outfitted with top quality hardwear. We use only Stainless fittings as well as oiled wooden seats, yokes and thwarts.

We are also able to offer centres/trade customers plastic seats, please Contact Us for further details.
