The 17' Jensen Recreation is the lightest tandem Jensen cruising canoe.
At 58 pounds in fiberglass, it is stable and makes an excellent boat
for the beginner day tripper. Paddlers of all skill levels will appreciate
the ease of paddling and its straight tracking quality.
Eugene Jensen designed this canoe for the average paddler. It suits
short outings, weekend trips and amateur racing. Its weight and good
stability make it ideal for older paddlers, while its narrow width makes
it a natural choice for smaller tandem paddlers. The seats are positioned
low so that even the inexperienced will feel comfortable and stable.
Excellent performance, lightweight, excellent stability, and excellent
value. The 17' Jensen has become the standard adventure racing canoe
in Manitoba and will be the prominent canoe at the Canadian Nationals.
I wanted to write you and tell you how much my dad and I like
our Clipper 17' Jensen. We have owned our Jensen for 4 years
now, and we love this canoe. It has won 3 state championships
in the short recreational division and lots of other races.
We feel our canoe has a personality like none of our other
canoes. It refuses to loose. The glide on this canoe is awesome.
It has a great natural glide, yet it also lets you keep pushing
it faster when needed. The canoe also tracks and handles great
in all types of water. A lot of people in our area (Pennsylvania)
have never heard of Clipper Canoes, or your version of the
Jensen. At races people commented on how nice it looked, and
how it looked like it was made well. Now after a couple years
the same people see how it performs and are asking us if it
is still available to buy. We have told them about your website
and to check them out. We couldn't be happier with ours.
Recently I paddled with a new partner for one race while
my dad tried a kayak. He was never in the canoe before, but
has paddled numerous "cruising" type canoes before,
and he was nervous about the stability of the canoe. The water
was very high the day of the race. I told him he would be
surprised the Jensen is stable. He was amazed. For such an
efficient design the canoe is very stable, and glided effortlessly
through the rough water.
We also use the canoe for all types of canoeing in lakes and
rivers that are under class 2. It is a very user friendly
canoe that is stable, has great glide, and tracks great. Our
Jensen has also held up very well.
The quality is top notch. We really enjoy our Clipper 17'
