For the past 20 years, the Tripper 17’6″ has been Clipper’s most popular model. We often had brainstorming sessions as to how to improve the Tripper, and in the end we decided to leave our best selling canoe alone. What we did come up with was a smaller version of the Tripper that also performs as an excellent solo canoe – the Tripper ‘S’.

The Tripper ‘S’ is 16’6″ with a four-inch waterline width of 31.5″ (versus 33″ in the Tripper). The canoe is asymmetrical with noticeable tumblehome that starts in front of the yoke and increases significantly towards the stern thwart. This results in a maximum beam at the gunnel of 32″. The Tripper ‘S’ is a delight to paddle solo yet it still provides sufficient volume for tandem wilderness trips. It has slightly more rocker for its overall length than the Tripper, which makes it more maneuverable and easier to control when paddled solo.

If you are one of the many canoeists who find themselves without a partner on occasion, the Tripper ‘S’ is just what you have been looking for; it comes standard with a kneeling thwart for solo paddling. This thwart can be easily removed when not in use. You can order an optional third seat or a removable foam saddle in place of the kneeling thwart. Check with your Clipper dealer for pricing on these options.
