2021 Venture Afon Whitewater Canoe - Corelite Information

Season : 2021

Brand : Venture Canoes


'Afon', similar to 'Avon', is derived from the Celtic British word for 'river; this simple word in itself says everything about this canoe.

Rivers can be tranquil, or they can be wild, and the Venture Afon is a true enthusiasts canoe in which you can enjoy either variety as well as everything between, whether paddled solo or tandem.

High volume ends, a flared bow, a subtle V-hull, and paddle cutaways all produce a canoe that is responsive and an utter joy to paddle, whilst continuous hull curvature gives a progressive feel, and high secondary stability.

The Afon tracks beautifully when flat, but heel it over onto its high-stability chines and the paddle cutaways will allow you to perfectly place your blade and swing the boat around on the spot; on the way downriver you'll notice the flared, high volume bow picking up through features and keeping you dry and headed in the right direction.

  • Moulded in Gunwales and end decks for higher durability and lower weight
  • Recessed lacing and outfitting bolts for greater protection and smoohther roof rack/trailer loading
  • Adjustable seat brackets allowing seat height and pitch to be adapted to your paddling style
  • Flared sides with sharp tumblehome provide high secondary stability and unhindered paddle strokes
  • High freboard and full volume ends lead to a dry ride, even on technical whitewater
  • Carefully tailored colume and rocker profile for reliable tracking when flat and nimble turns when heeled over
This listing is for canoe only, with yoke & 2 wood webbed seats. Outfitting can be added & fitted upon request.

Choose this Canoe for:

  • Comfortable performance on any river.
  • A supremely dry and manoeuvrable whitewater canoe.
  • An unreservedly modern design.


Corelite is an advanced three layer construction that gives an exceptional Weight-to-Rigidity ratio, taking advantage of the fact that only the outer layers of the material are required to bear compressive and tensile forces by using a lighter, rigid foam inner layer. This foam core has the added benefit of giving the whole canoe enough inherent buoyancy to keep it at the waterline in the event of swamping.

Professional Opinion
"The Afon did not disappoint; I was giggling in less than a minute, dancing within two and loving it shortly after. It was everything i'd hoped for" - Ray Goodwin, author of 'Canoeing'

"A fanstically dry canoe, with an impressive amount of secondary stability. A truely dynamic & fun river canoe" - Andy, Store Manager

"The Afon is a great boat! A real forward step in canoe design. The plastic is light and makes carrying it easy, however it is stiff enough to hold its shape when put under stress under paddling that makes it perform to its potential as a river boat. The secondary stability is excellent and a key feature of its performance. The rocker will mean a dry ride, but when edged leads to a predictable arc, one that can be adjusted through the turn to dictate the shape of that arc and outcome. The back end releases in the turn, but can also be easily trimmed back for more directional stability." - Ken Hughes, Professional Canoe Coach
