The Yukon is big, fast and cold. It gets windy often and can be really wet. I have thought of doing a trip on it for years. The wilderness character is compromised in many areas because of the amount of commerce, people moving stuff, natives fishing, etc.
I though of a large canoe at first, but then thought of a drift boat with an outboard would be ideal. Maybe two canoes lashed together with poles and covers and a small outboard, native style.
