    Manufacturers blurb.
    The self-bailing canoe BARAKA is an ideal boat for river traveling and for moderate white water. The extra compact hull has excellent riding characteristics that will be appreciated by the passengers especially when riding rapids. The Baraka boat provides the passengers with unbeatably manifold equipment and especially a big storage space. Baraka is designed for two passengers plus one child, resp. 350 kg load. The Baraka is the right choice for paddlers who are not willing to accept any compromises.

    Hi yes just got it last week reason it is big enough to do some trips in and it can be packed away i have two Land Rover a130 defender and a Disco 3 and i am only 5ft 4" they are a long way up so to put a hard canoe up there if i am on my own would be hard to to so to me the best option.

    hope to be using it soon have not done much paddling for a long time way back in the 60 had a go in Poland a few year ago now and ever since t said i would get one

    I have a baraka complete with an outboard adapter the allows the use of a small outboard motor through the drain sleeve. I haven’t used it yet but know that a Honda bf2.3hp fits well. Any body out there used one of these?
