A very manoeuvrable solo Canadian with lots of space to put your gear. Suitable for both small rivers and big lakes. The YOHO 1 is, due of its manoeuvrability, very suitable for white water canoeing. The hull has a shallow, round shape, on the Yoho1-80 and bit more rocker. The YOHO 1-70 is a bit less manoeuvrable than the wider Yoho 1-80 which features a flat bottom, however it runs a bit quicker and is easier to Eskimo roll the canoe. The Yoho’s are ideal for individualists, fast white-water canoeing, kids and youngsters and have been first choice in various canoe films.
A Canoe for 2 adults with a child and gear. The Canadian 475 speeds up very fast and then runs easily light and is good manoeuvrable. With a V-shaped hull, the Canadian 475 is ideally suited to the deeper waters and rivers however this canoe can also be paddled on small rivers as well.
Canoes, manufactured by active paddlers for todays canoeists - The history of GATZ-KANUS
Arno Gatz, owner and founder of Gatz-Canoes started paddling in the 40s in modified tiptanks of warplanes. Followed by folding kayaks the need for a larger multifunctional craft led to the building of his first canoe. In the early 60s the first serial recreation canoe in Europe made from the then new material Fibreglass was built in the Gatz workshop. Growing demand led to more models all of them produced under the goal to build the best and long-lasting canoes for our customers. Great designs stand the test of time and today our early models like the Mohawk and Cherokee are more popular than ever. Gatz continues to develop and introduce new materials and technologies as production processes. Today, we are proud of being the only company in Europe to manufacture canoes from such varying materials as fibreglas, Kevlar, carbon, polyethylene and Royalex. Your descision to buy a Gatz-Canoe is a descision for a product at the forefront of current technology.
