Clipper Tripper-S (FG, Black Trim)
For the past 20 years, the Tripper 17’6″ has been Clipper’s most popular model. The Tripper "S" is a smaller version of the Tripper that also performs as an excellent solo canoe.
The Tripper S is asymmetrical with noticeable tumblehome that starts in front of the yoke and increases significantly towards the stern thwart. This results in a maximum beam at the gunnel of 32″. It's a delight to paddle solo yet it still provides sufficient volume for tandem wilderness trips. It has slightly more rocker for its overall length than the Tripper, which makes it more maneuverable and easier to control when paddled solo.
The boat comes standard with a kneeling thwart for solo paddling. This thwart can be easily removed when not in use. You can order an optional third seat or a removable foam saddle in place of the kneeling thwart. We brought this boat in with the black trim option.
Please note the canoe may not look exactly like the photograph.
