Combining a canoe and kayak would give you a, well, a “canyak” or something, which doesn’t sound as cool as Next Canoe, so that’s the name Old Town went with for its offering.
Blending both characteristics with an open cockpit design, three-layer hull, removable seating system, and a weight of just 53 lbs., Next Canoe is a versatile way to make your way through the water. It’s ideal for both double-bladed and single-bladed paddles, promising a easy and natural paddling experience. You might consider the matching Next Paddle, a fiberglass reinforced polypropylene blade that promises to be lightweight and durable. The three-layer hull features a subtle rocker for straight, smooth tracking, and the canoe has a weight capacity of 450 lbs. [Purchase]
