Our award winning canoes are individually constructed to your requirements and are unsurpassed in quality and attention to detail.


The ultimate canoeing experience is reserved for those few who paddle the traditional wood and canvas canoe. No other material is so long lasting and completely restorable after generations of use, can be constructed with such fine lines, and is so responsive to paddle and pleasing to the eye. At Northwoods Canoe Company we offer many different models of wood and canvas canoes. Each is painstakingly constructed using the finest Maine white cedar for ribs and planking, white spruce for the rails, and ash for decks, thwarts and seats. The completed hull is treated with oils and preservatives before being covered with select U.S. Grade #10 canvas, which is then filled with our own special filler.


Durable spar varnish is applied to the well-sanded interior and first quality marine enamel, available in all popular colors, finishes the exterior. All screws, tacks, stem and and other fastenings are marine grade brass or bronze.


While we strictly adhere to traditional construction methods and material, certain options are available to satisfy individual requirements. These include: mahogany or cherry rails, thwarts and seats, sailing rigs, half ribs, special light weight models, durable and attractive shellac bottom paint, two-tone paint, outside stems, keels, and hand caned seats. Please inquire about any additional options or additions that you may desire for your canoe.
