How can you improve a centuries-old design? In lots of ways, it turns out. We started from scratch with the new Saranac family of canoes and, by narrowing the shape and slightly lowering the seats we have developed a model that paddles better than most recreational canoes on the market. The Saranac features two contoured seats plus a bench seat perfect for smaller passengers. The bench seat also includes a covered storage compartment, while bow and stern seats incorporate a variety of extras including cup holders, rod holders and storage trays designed to add convenience and versatility to the canoe. The Saranac is affordable family fun!
