The big one. This boat is as amazing as the Hou 13 is fun. It's a sublime balance between load carrying and efficient paddling. Designed with the explorer in mind or the hire operator who needs reliability and durability. This boat eats up the miles with ease. A fantastic long distance expedition boat that paddles well when substantially loaded. Alternatively she paddles amazingly as a fast day boat, hence the hire operators choice If it were a car, this would be a large estate car
As for her style, it's the great modern blend of flattish hull, slight curvature and rocker allowing for maneuverability when required but focusing mainly on making forward paddling easy. Simply it's a longer, more efficient, slightly sleeker version of the brothers 15 and 16. People who have paddled it in the past always remark on how great it feels for such a large boat. If you want a boat that cuddles you on a long trip, this is the one
