Enigma Nimrod 15

The Enigma Nimrod 15 is an ideal open canoe if you are looing for a versatile 1 or 2 person option that's great for day trips or a little lightweight overnight expedition. With its' generous freeboard and straight sides, the Nimrod 15 delivers a nice dry ride and plenty of confidence on the water with very predicrable stability and edging. The Nimrod 14 tracks in a straight line with minimal control strokes and is also very quick and easy to turn when you need.

Made from triple layer super-strong polyethylene, the Nimrod 15 also has some buoyancy included as the middle core section in the plastic sandwich that makes up the hull is a foam which prevents the boat sinking in the event of a capsize.

The Enigma Nimrod 15 canoe comes as standard with 2 comfortable wood and web seats, centre carrying yoke and bow and stern carry handles. However, if you are going to be portaging any distance, we suggest taking a suitable canoe trolley to make life easier.

The Enigma Canoes Nimrod 15 design may look familiar and ideed the design was popular for many years as the Mobile Adventure Melody. Many of which are still being paddled today a long time after they were produced which is a great indicator that this is a quality canoe that's UK made and manufactured.
