The EXPLORER is the larger expedition version of the Romany 16 with more hull speed and cargo room. It’s a super fit for middle sized paddlers, and has become one of the standards of paddling here in the Northeast. It carves and spins. Its secondary stability is remarkable. Its fuller ends hold more gear and keep the bow from pearling. Certainly there are faster boats, but not many when it is rough and challenging. It’s the bumpy and lumpy water where we feel challenged and the Explorer’s and Romany’s excel with their user friendly hulls, high secondary stability, thigh contact, and expedition features.
