The Malana is a fast and lightweight three or four man outrigger paddling canoe built by S.I.C. in Maui, Hawaii. Its intended use is for downwind runs in open-ocean, distance along shoreline or simple recreational fun paddling. It has a high freeboard and will hold 4- 190 lbs. paddlers with ease.
Malana in Hawaiian means buoyant or lightweight. It is sleek, light, excels fast and tracks well, giving the steersman ample opportunity to paddle. Both Wa’a and Ama are constructed with a vacuum bagged process using high temperature cure epoxy. This process ensures high fiber ratio toughness with maximum weight savings. The seats are full composite (no wood rot) and gunnels are high density PVC foam.
Dimensions: 26′2″ X 16.75″
