First, are you looking for a solo or a tandem?

Do you plan to run Class III rapids in a loaded boat, or portage around them?

How technical is the whitewater you plan to paddle on? How long are the rapids? Are there good recovery pools below them?

Any canoe that is capable of safely running Class III water, especially if it involves long rapids, or technical rapids will have compromised flat water performance. How much you are willing to compromise flat water performance for increased whitewater capability is very much going to depend on the type of whitewater you want to paddle.
