In my view the Trillium is an exceptional solo canoe. It paddles effortlessly and seems as fast as my Merlin II yet it is significantly more maneuverable than the Merlin II. I don't think there's anything else quite like it on the market. It shares the seaworthiness of the Merlin II and larger Northwind Solo. I owned a Northwind Solo before the Trillium was available and although I generally prefer a larger solo in this case I much prefer the Trillium for it's quickness, maneuverability and generally more sporty character. If the Trillium was available years ago I might not have owned so many solos over the years.

Have been out on the water only a few times, but my experience with canoe was has been great. Very light, easy to load & unload from car, easy to portage. In the water it is a pleasure to paddle, and faster than I thought it would be. I use both a single and a double paddle while paddling. Handles great with both.
