Please look carefully at the photos, especially the sides of the boat.
You will see that this canoe has extra stability designed into it (i.e. more than a standard canoe.)
It has what are called " sponsons ". Here is what the internet/Wikipedia shows for that:

"Sponsons are projections from the sides of a watercraft, for protection, stability,
or the mounting of equipment such as armaments or lifeboats, etc.
They extend a hull dimension at or below the waterline and serve to increase flotation
or add lift when underway.

Sponsons are commonly used on jetskis and other personal watercraft such as canoes to provide
either additional buoyancy and thus stability against capsize, or hydrodynamic forces to resist capsize.
They can often be easily attached to an existing craft in order to improve its stability."

This is NOT a boundary waters 'light weight' canoe.
It seems like a heavier weight and stronger aluminum.
This is a Browning Marine Branded canoe, and their model name is "Navano 15".
it is rated to 5 HP motor.
