Spirit Spirit16', 33.5 " beam, 55 lbs.

This canoe is based on a Canadian design. Roger MacGregor, author of "When the Chestnut Was in Flower" took the lines for the Chestnut Kruger. The Kruger was a slim cruising canoe created by the Chestnut Canoe Co. This is the Newfound Woodworks' version of the Chestnut Kruger.

This canoe works well either tandem or solo. It can be paddled solo by sitting in the bow seat facing sternward. The weight is 55 lbs; it is very stable feeling if you kneel and lean your butt against the seat.

This particular canoe was built staple-less in our shop in Bristol, NH.




Nipmuc Canoe

Trkeer Hybrid Kayak Nipmuc hull

17', 35.9 " beam, 59 lbs.

We named the Nipmuc and Abenaki in honor of the Native Americans who once paddled and fished the inland waters of southern New England. They are loosely based on old Maine canoe designs with traditional re-curved stems and slightly flatter bottoms than the old designs originating in Canada for greater initial stability. One can imagine these canoes packed with a week’s gear for the ultimate paddling adventure.

This Nipmuc has better straight line tracking with a full length keel and gray barrier coat protection for the hull. See below. This is a great canoe for canoe camping.


Otter Solo

Beached Otter otter canoe

11.8', 32.5" beam, 35 lbs.

This is a lightweight (35 lbs), easily portaged solo canoe that can be paddled with a traditional canoe paddle or with a kayak paddle. It is deeper than a Wee Lassie canoe so the seat is attached to cleats that are epoxied to the inside of the hull. However, the bow and stern heights are such that you shouldn't be pushed about by the wind.

A larger paddler will find that it has plenty of capacity. One could even take their Retriever or a small child and still feel very comfortable.



Rob Roy Solo

Rob Roy Solo Canoe Rob Roy Solo

13'6" length, 27" beam, 35 lbs

The Rob Roy is a stitch n glue plywood canoe that is paddled with a double bladed paddle while sitting on a canoe seat mounted to the floor. This is a very stable canoe with good capacity; it can work well with up to 275 lbs of paddler and gear.
