Adventure Expedition Features & Innovations

The Adventure Expedition is a workhorse and can handle it all. From its rugged construction to its efficient hull design this boat will get you to, through and back from every adventure.

Extremely Portable Image

Extremely Portable & Adventure Ready

Everything fits in just one bag! Grabner inflatable canoes take up a tiny amount of space once rolled up; throw it in your trunk or check it as luggage on your next traveling adventure!

Outboard Ready Image

Sweat-Free Propulsion

Easily mount the Torqeedo Ultralight 403 electric kayak motor on the strake mounted stern bracket. Arrive to your destination more rested, let technology do the paddling for you!

High gunwales Image

A Place to Fasten Everything

High gunwales protect from splashing water. All Grabner canoes have ample tie-down points but the Adventure Expedition has a continuous grommet rail to attach anything and everything. With optional thigh-belts even the paddlers can be secured to the boat!

Function and Form Image

Where Function and Form Meet

The curved bow and stern strakes create added buoyancy at the ends of the boat and also give it that classic canoe shape that we all know and love!

Children On Board Image

Children On Board?

The high gunwales are perfect for keeping kids and gear in and splashing waves and water out!

The interior is very spacious and can accommodate up to three adults with the addition of an optional third seat board.

Ready to Bail Image

Ready to Bail

In white water, the self-bailer evacuates any water that finds its way into the boat. You can roll it up and seal it when sitting still or in calm waters to prevent any unwanted water ingress.

The Right Paddle, Right Now

Everyone who canoes paddles their own way. It is sometimes an expensive game of trial and error to find the paddle that best fits you and your style. Grabner and Red Beard Sailing have a narrow and specific selection of paddles so that you can determine the right paddle for your needs, the first time.

Adventure Expedition Single Paddle Accessory Kit


This accessory kit rounds out your new canoe purchase. This kit provides a bag, pump and paddles so you can get on the water and start enjoying your new canoe right away!

Why Red Beard Recommends
This is a baseline accessory kit that will get you up and running as quickly as possible. The paddles are collapsible and everything can store in and on the backpack. The Adventure Expedition is a nearly 15’ long canoe, so moving it in a wheel bag is always easier on the back than carrying it.

Accessory Kit Includes:
1 Hand Air Pump, 2 Single Blade 3pc Canoe Paddles, 1 Backpack With Wheels, 1 16ft Boat Line, 1 Bottle of Boat Skin Conditioner

Adventure Expedition Single Paddle Accessory Kit Image

Adventure Expedition Combi-Paddle Accessory Kit


The Combi-Paddle accessory kit is a great starting point for learning what the Adventure has to offer. Including all of the necessary bits to get you hurtling down your favorite river or cruising across your favorite lake.

Why Red Beard Recommends
The Combi-paddle can be 2 single blade paddles for when you are out with a friend, but when you want to get upstream (or downstream) faster, this paddle can turn into a double-blade kayak paddle for more power. This is a kit that maximizes utility without breaking the bank.

Accessory Kit Includes:
1 Hand Air Pump, 1 Combi-Paddle, 1 Backpack With Wheels, 1 16ft Boat Line, 1 Bottle of Boat Skin Conditioner

Floor Insert Product

Floor Insert

This foldable rigid floor increases the torsional rigidity and provides a solid under-foot feel. This would be a great accessory for fishermen and hunters who need firm footing.



Let Technology Do the Paddling for You!

Kayaks are amazingly well designed boats. They are stable due to their low center of gravity and are very hydrodynamic allowing them to be propelled easily, even by small muscle groups such as shoulders and arms. It is time to take advantage of the kayak’s design and leave behind manual paddling! Electric motors are reliable, efficient and environmentally friendly. An electric motor will free your hands so you can dedicate them to a fishing rod for easier landing of the big catch, a pair of binoculars for easier bird watching, or any other activity that would require two hands. Give in to the dark side and embrace the way of electric propulsion!

callout image

Built in GPS

Did you know that Torqeedo motors have built in GPS and a screen that displays real time range, runtime and speed? It also allows you to easily troubleshoot with error code readouts. Don’t guess with other brand’s display free designs. Torqeedo makes it easy to own and use an electric outboard!

Torqeedo 403 AC Image

Torqeedo 403 AC


This electric motor is light in weight and provides ample propulsion to get you to your destination (or back) with ease!
