CANOE BUILDING WORKSHOPS

COMPARE OUR CANOES

So we've put together a comparison chart for you to take a look at. If you still can't decide, then you just need to build them all. Simple.

LAKELANDER

1 - 3 person canoe

COST

£595

WEIGHT

25 kg on average, can be comfortably lifted by 1 person.

SIZE

15' 6''' long by 35'' wide

BUILD TIME

Our most popular canoe by far. Beautiful and stable, tried and tested, safe and seaworthy. She's simple to build and you'll have time to paint her on the final day.

HANDLING

A perfect all-round canoe, really stable, with a shallow arched hull (for stability and strength), and a slight rocker (for ease of turns carring.)  It would be capable of extended canoe trips with a good amount of kit.

She quick and responsive and sits on an edge very well for solo paddling.

 

The Lakelander is designed for both flat water paddling, and slow moving rivers.  Like with all wooden canoes and boats, it's best to avoid meeting rocks. It will also perform well on calm seas.
