The 17 is the largest canoe in the Hou range and has perfected the balance between efficient paddling and load carrying capacity. It is a longer, sleeker and more efficient version of the Hou 15 & 16 and has been designed for explorers who like to go on long distance expeditions, it is also a great choice for hire operators who rely on durable canoes.
The Hou 17 has a great modern blend of a flattish hull, slight curvature and rocker allowing for manoeuvrability when required but focusing mainly on making forward paddling easy.
The 17 is made from Hou's triple layer polyethylene material. This triple layer material is Hue's top choice as it allows them to construct a lightweight, strong, durable and buoyant canoe at a great price.

We offer a delivery service for the Hou 17 throughout the UK & Ireland to home and work addresses.
Delivery times are estimates based on years of experience; we do not offer a guaranteed timed delivery service. Our overnight service works well for the core more densely populated areas of the UK for Clothing and Equipment orders. However more remote less densely populated areas will not be covered by a next day service.
Delivery of canoes and kayaks is classed as “ugly freight” because mechanical handling and automatic parcel processing cannot be used; therefore a delivery time of 3-5 working days is more realistic. For remote location that delivery time will be dependent on the local courier’s ability to onward ship the goods. Not all areas of the UK are serviced by vehicles that can handle canoes and kayaks. Online orders can be tracked online using the courier’s website – tracking details will be provided. We make every effort to deliver goods within the estimated time scales.
The delivery price will be shown in the shopping basket.
