Canoes for sale!

Two year waiting list? Not for these beauties!

Rollin has been looking around the shop this summer and he realized that we have two new canoes and a finished restoration sitting in storage, just waiting to be put in the water. Take a look and if you’re interested, give us a call for more information!

This beautiful Model A, Type III 17-foot B.N. Morris was built for a customer in 2001 and is like new! Asking $4800
It has a nice stern seat drawer and comes with Shaw & Tenney oars.
Built in 2010, this Kingfisher was traded in for a newer canoe. It is in excellent condition and there is hardly a sign of wear. Asking $4375
We finished the restoration of this 15.5-foot Chestnut in 2012. Asking $2400


Or are you looking for a project? We’ve got ’em: a Gerrish Peapod and two Rangeley rowboats.

This 15-foot Gerrish Rowing Peapod needs work, but the hull is in good condition. Asking $2000
You can see the original Gerrish tag here. It says “E.H. Gerrish- Maker – Bangor, Maine.”


This Sprague model Grand Laker is 20 feet long, 40 inches wide and 18 inches deep. Asking $800


A 16.5-foot Rangeley rowboat. Needs extensive work, but the hull is still solid and has not deformed. Asking $800
This Rangeley rowboat still has its paint, inside and out. It also needs extensive work. Asking $300


Summer in the Shop

Rollin and Elisa are back in the shop after a class at the WoodenBoat School. Twelve students built three canoes in a week! A former student sent along this video of his finished Kingfisher, cruising across a lake.
