A firm favourite with families, centres, clubs and hirers; the Venture Ranger 162 is stable, highly versatile and supremely hard wearing.

Whatever your skill level, the Ranger 162 won’t disappoint; its relatively flat hull is remarkably stable and allows beginners to progress with confidence or intermediates to push their limits and reach the next level, and thanks to the low profile design you won’t have to fight to stay on course if the wind picks up.

The Venture Ranger 162 really will do it all, and reliably too! You can enjoy a tandem trip down a gentle river, take on some whitewater, pootle around a calm lake with the kids or even lash two Ranger 162s together, load them up and construct a sailing A-frame to blast off on an epic adventure with your closest friends.

CL Construction

CL is a three layer construction that gives an exceptional Weight-to-Rigidity ratio, taking advantage of the fact that only the outer layers of the material are required to bear compressive and tensile forces by using a lighter, rigid foam inner layer; this foam core has the added benefit of giving the whole canoe enough inherent buoyancy to keep it at the waterline in the event of swamping. The HDPE used for the outer layers is both highly durable and readily repairable.

Upgrade to CoreLite X for greater performance.
