The Esperanto is one of the fastest plastic tandems on the market. It is easy to paddle, comfortable, stable, and can reach impressive cruising speeds. A moderate rocker and a large rudder contribute to efficient turns. The practical center compartment can be used for extra storage or outfitted with our optional child seat/bulkhead. The cockpits are spaced sufficiently apart, allowing the paddlers to paddle at their own speed without risk of accidental collision between paddles. This makes the Esperanto ideally suited to a pair of paddlers with mixed abilities, families with young children, or a long expedition needing high volume of storage and displacement.
