Enigma Turing 17


The Enigma Turing 17 has been design by Colin Broadway (Mobile Adventure Peace River cruiser, now Enigma Turing 17) this is easily tracked creating a smooth tandem paddle which is quick through the water.


This spacious all-round design means that you have a boat to take the whole family out on the water or with its high load capacity plan overnight trips with a partner and all the gear needed for a multiday paddling/camping trip.

Made in the UK the Turing 17 is a proven low maintenance three layer plastic build allowing you to paddle with confidence without the worry of damaging the hull on shallow sections or while dragging the boat in and out of the water. The longer hull design provides more space over the smaller Enigma Turing 16 enabling you to load up with more kit and sit or kneel in your prime position without compromising on comfort. Buoyancy bags or blocks can be secured into the bow and stern of the boat to provide extra buoyancy in case of a capsize.

The longer 17ft length makes tracking the canoe straight incredibly easy enabling you to carry your speed thought he water and have an efficient day on the water without feeling as much fatigue which could be experienced in a smaller sized boat. The rocker profile makes this boat manoeuvrable even while loaded making it ideal for sheltered coastlines, slow moving rivers, lakes and cabals.

The canoe can be car topped by two people and the yoke provides a comfortable fit while resting the boat on your shoulders when portaging or carrying down to the put in.
