Long Haul folding kayaks makes at least one canoe model, I think, called the York and a "commando" version that may simply be an upgrade in terms of durability. They're insanely expensive, but probably provide value for value.

Look at the new Pakboat Quest 150. It very much resembles the We-no-nah you linked and can be paddled with or without the removable deck. Length is 4.5 meters and it weighs 14 kg but capacity is only 130 kg. The XT-17 has a 180 kg capacity, weighs 20 kg, but you do have to use the deck so it is a strictly a closed boat.

All the Pakcanoes except the longest one meet your weight and capacity criteria and are 4.3 to 5 meters.

As the deck on the Xt 17 is detachable I see no reason why it cant be used without it. You just need a different solution for anchoring a backrest
