Silverbirch Firefly 14 - from $2270

When Silverbirch set out to design the Firefly they had a very clear brief in mind: To design the most versatile solo canoe that they could.

A canoe that would be at home in a diverse variety of conditions and with a wide variety of loads. A canoe that would paddle well on open stretches of flat water but would also be at home on moderate moving water. A canoe that paddles well with a light payload but is also more than capable of extended tripping.

And crucially - a solo canoe that is light enough to carry solo........

With weights as light as 25.5kg we are confident that they have the last point covered.  As for everything else..... an extended prototyping process has left them with a balanced and graceful canoe and, thanks to its carefully considered sidewall profile, one that takes a wide variety of payloads and water conditions in its stride!

The Firefly is truly a beautiful boat to paddle and has already become a favourite among our staff at Paddle & Portage.
