Like a Swiss Army Knife, the Spirit II does everything. This canoe is a very versatile tandem, with excellent performance and easy handling
"Balanced" is the best word to describe the Wenonah Spirit II. This canoe travels distances easily yet turns extremely well. It's capable on rapids, and open water, too. The canoe's big enough for trips and it's also very stable.
So, does the Spirit II obsolete all other canoes? No. If you want an elevated level of a certain attribute, say tracking or capacity, then a specialized canoe design may suit you better. But if you need a canoe that delivers a good level of all types of performance, the Spirit II is ideal.
Canoe & Kayak Magazine tested the Spirit II, and concluded, "...this canoe is simple and functional. If you could have only one canoe to serve all your needs for the rest of your life, the Spirit II would be one of very few candidates."
At 17' long, the canoe strikes a good balance between the efficiency of a longer hull and the maneuverability of a shorter one.
The Spirit II canoe is safe and roomy, too, having capacity for medium-heavy trips. With two large people it draws just 4", leaving lots of reserve buoyancy for gear in the canoe. Loaded it becomes more stable yet still handles well, even on waves.
Should you have a Spirit? If no single Wenonah Canoe seems ideal due to its specialization, you likely need the wide versatility of our Spirit II, or its cousin canoe, the Aurora.
