This is the canoe you want if you like to put in long days and carry a ton of gear. She’s fast!
The Minnesota II is in a class of its own--the most efficient, straight-tracking, tandem tripping canoe ever made. If you travel in Minnesota's Boundary Waters Canoe Area or Canada's Quetico Park, you'll see a lot of these canoes.
The Minnesota II is fast and seaworthy when loaded with gear, yet fun to paddle lightly loaded. This rocket of a canoe is a favorite of Wenonah staff for after work paddles on the Mississippi. Its long waterline rewards skilled paddlers with unmatched glide and speed and it's straight tracking hull is easy to keep pointed toward your destination. If you're looking for a canoe that is an absolute joy to paddle on flatwater but is capable of tackling an ambitious wilderness expedition, the Minnesota II is the right choice.
The Minnesota II--the canoe that revolutionized portaging and long-distance paddling in the Boundary Waters and beyond.

Graphite Ultra-lightA Graphite Ultra-light canoe is made the same way as a Aramid Ultra-light, but with Graphite as the outer layer. It’s ideal for paddlers desiring more stiffness in their composite canoe. The crisp look and aesthetic appeal of a black Graphite canoe on the water is also undeniable.
Tuf-weave Flex-CoreWenonah's Tuf-weave® material is an interwoven fabric made of 50% polyester and 50% fiberglass that out performs either material alone. The Tuf-weave® layup results in our most durable composite canoes. Tuf-weave® canoes offer improved impact resistance and are a great compromise between light weight, performance, and price.
Ultra-light w/ AramidWenonah’s Ultra-light hulls are stiff and incredibly light. They are ideal for efficient distance paddling and for all people or conditions that demand the lightest gear. Our construction features a structural core and ribs laminated into the hull and sides. Extra fabric layers are then added to strengthen specific targeted areas.
Aluminum plates are strategically laminated into the hull, onto which seats, foot braces and all hardware are then riveted. This gives a highly secure connection and eliminates rivet heads on the exterior.
All WoodAll-wood trim is an option on all composite solo and tandem canoes (except the Backwater) and includes hardwood inwales, outwales, end caps, thwarts and handles. Finished with three coats of oil, natural colored wood is standard and a darker walnut stain is optional. Please note, Wenonah's wood selection varies based on the availability of quality wood from sustainable sources. Fasteners are stainless steel. Wood trim is an additional charge.
All Wood TrimAsh is a hardwood that is strong, long-grained, compression-resistant, and flexible. In short, the perfect wood for gunwales. It's also warm to the touch and looks beautiful. Wenonah's all wood trim also has ash thwarts, carrying handles, and an ash yoke.
Black AluminumAluminum gunwales are extruded to provide a lightweight, stiff, and stable gunwale material for all sorts of boats. Many manufacturers have a specific shape for their brands. Wenonah also has an option for black anodized aluminum. There is no performance difference, just a cosmetic preference.
VersiGunwaleThe VersiGunwale is a new, exciting option for all Wenonah composite canoes. The new VersiGunwale is slotted on the inner-facing side bow-to-stern to accept all common rail-mounted fishing and accessories. The VersiGunwale also brings additional strength and rigidity to the canoe with only a small weight increase.
