Canoes, Open Boats, and Canoe Equipment

Open Boats or Canadian Canoes are suitable for carrying large loads and some models will take three people or more. We stock stable allrounder canoes for flat water and low grade white water use. Tourers are great as first time boats and for flat water being long for fast movement in a straight line and with plenty of capacity for people and camping kit, whilst river runners and white water options exist for the more adventurous paddler.

Generally canoes come in lengths from 13 to 17ft, depending on the carrying capacity and desired characteristics. Wider boats are more stable, but longer, narrower boats are faster. Solo users should look at a boat around the 13 to 14ft mark as these tend to be lighter, whilst for greater carrying capacity we suggest you consider canoes between 14 and 16ft. Basic fittings usually include two seats, a central thwart, and yoke. They are generally wider than the shorter canoes, aiding stability, and meaning that they can be used as great family boats too. Many of the models in this size range can also be fitted with a third seat if required.

We stock lots of kit for your canoe including seats, or kneeling thwarts that provide more power to your stroke, paddles, airbags, portage systems and even inculding sails to help you harness the wind.
