Reservation deposits will be refunded if the used canoe sale is to be canceled or rescheduled due to changing provincial COVID-19 restrictions.
Appointments will only be issued for the exact number of canoes sold.
Once all appointment deposits have been acquired the sale will effectively be “sold out” (unless someone cancels prior to the sale – at which point we would use a waiting list to find a suitor).

OUR AVAILABLE USED CANOES FOR 2022
15ft SCOTT KEVLAR PROSPECTOR
The Scott 15ft gel-coated Kevlar Prospector is a nimble versatile canoe with many practical advantages. For starters it paddles well when fully loaded or when paddling around camp unloaded. Secondly given its length and round bottom it doubles well as a solo canoe. It’s just as nimble on the portages too, given its 50 pound weight. We’re selling 5 of these canoes to make room for new additions in the summer.$700 to $750
17ft SOURIS RIVER ULTRALIGHT QUETICO
This may be the ultimate backcountry tripping canoe. Only slightly heavier than the 16 foot UltraLight, this Quetico shaped hull is incredibly fast, stable and can easily track a straight line on big windy lakes. It rides high on waves and takes in very little water over the gunwales. Ideal for backcountry enthusiasts looking to get to their destination with true voyageur efficiency and style. We’re only selling 5 of these canoes this year!$1500-$1600
16ft SOURIS RIVER ULTRALIGHT PROSPECTOR
Where weight matters you need the 16ft Ultralight. Clear kevlar/epoxy resin and lightweight aluminium trimmings makes these speedsters weight as low as 41 pounds and no more than 44 pounds. At 16ft these canoes are a well rounded mix for paddlers wandering through meandering rivers as well as crushing big water lakes. We are selling 5 of these canoes.$1250 to $1300
18ft SOURIS RIVER ULTRALIGHT QUETICO
Family sized canoe built for canoe-camping. At 1300 pounds of capacity it is by far our biggest canoe. The Quetico shape makes it a speedster despite its length. When unloaded however, this canoe can be a kite given the wrong wind conditions. This canoe is designed to haul people or gear while being light on the portages. Clear kevlar/epoxy canoe with a removable 3rd seat, weight 55 pounds, length 18ft 6 inches, width 35 inches. We are selling 5 of these canoes.$1400 to $1500
16ft H2O PROLIGHT PROSPECTOR
Full size prospector with none of the weight. All the hardware fixed to this canoe is designed to keep the overall weight down while ensuring the canoe is tough enough for the rental market.
This canoe has tonnes of carrying capacity and is agile in the water but where it shines is on the portage trail. At 33 pounds, it truly is like not carrying anything at all. The generous rocker makes it nimble in the water at the sacrifice of overall speed. Wind obstacles are not as hard to overcome given its shallow and wide body shape. $1850 to $1900
