The success of the proven Chesapeake hull shape led quickly to demands for similar tandem and three-person designs. The Chesapeake Double and Triple are high-volume touring boats, with a 700lb payload that belies their surprising speed. The high bow will carry you over all but the worst chop, while the deep stern ensures confident tracking in strong crosswinds, even with a light load. These are substantial boats for serious expeditions. They are comfortable day-trippers for families or couples.
The Chesapeake Triple can accommodate three adults, we have found over the years that most paddlers will use the center cockpit for children or pets, or for light gear stowage with a cockpit cover snapped in place. The Triple is not suitable for paddling single-handed, although many builders will choose to mount a CLC SailRig to convert the Triple into a fast and efficient cruiser.
