Therefore, it is not surprising that the boat has already been used in many wilderness journeys and expeditions all over the world. In order to fasten all the expedition luggage in the boot, and also to make a heavily loaded boat easier to carry, the Adventure was equipped with coaming eyelets; something which has been requested often in the past. With 52 Nirosta mounts, 7 strong D-Rings and 4 bow/stern reinforcement stripholes; everything can be safely secured in the boat. By shaping the rope/carrying handles the loaded boat can carried more easily. Highly appreciated are features of the Adventure Expedition that virtually offer everything families, novices to paddling to professionals, whitewater freaks and heavyweight water-sport enthusiasts expect from a boat:
Apart from paddling the Adventure Expedition it makes a good sail-boat (trimaran rig), and with the Torqeedo stern mount motor a quietly moving motorboat offering great comfort. Decisive overriding fact though are the boats aspects of safety and resilient material, which guarantee an unbelievable long use and lifespan. Thanks to its Canadian canoe shape and the long water line that comes with it, the Adventure Expedition stands for outstanding directional course holding stability, without having to make constant course corrections. Newcomers and those with little sailing experience will appreciate this feature. High aspect freeboard makes provision for extra load. It protects infants from falling overboard and fends off the wash of headon waves. Bow and stern have strong reinforcement strakes, which absorb and take the impact velocity out of bumps. Short decks covering bow and stern ward off ingress of water fore and aft. Functional fittings, such as the 4 + 3 strong stainless D-rings and 30 seatboard eyelets ensure safe and secure stowing of luggage in the boat.
Bow and stern all round fitting safety and carrying-belts enable to carry the boat or hauled along side, and to be held onto in the event of capsize. Water splashed into the boat is drained away by means of a sealable bailing-hose, being part of the self-bailing feature, hence the Adventure Expedition always remains manoeuvrable and does not require additional bailing. In calm waters, the cleverly designed roll-up seal of the bailinghose can be closed. Spray and rain water may be evacuated from the bilge without unloading the boat, or tipping it over. High resistance to capsize, and the different methods of propulsion by means of: single blade paddles, combination paddles, oars (x), electric motor (x), fuel engine, sail (x) render the Adventure Expedition a safe boat of universal and family friendly application. Even two children can sit next to each other on the middle seat board (x).
The seats (x) can be mounted as horizontal planks or, with the help of the belts, set to any angle. The boat can be trimmed by adjusting the seat board along the length. The large luggage storage area provides space for even the most extensive adventure equipment. The spraydeck (x) protects against rain, spray and cold, as well as permitting luggage to be fastened down at the bow, stern and middle. The ideal colour scheme has been well thought out. The black outer skin (particularly tough and resistant thanks to the high percentage of soot) blends discretely into the surroundings). The red inner skin can save your life as a signalling colour in an emergency. With its three seat holes, the Adventure Expedition can be used by 3 persons or the ideal seat position for two persons can be selected.
