The traditional look of the Old Town Charles River canoe understates its high-performance hull design and its paddler-friendly features. Straight-on speed, handling ease and high weight capacity make the Charles River an all-around performance canoe that's perfect for intermediate to advanced paddlers. Ample cargo area for gear or extra passengers; great for fishing, day paddles, nature watching and weekend trips. 3-layer polyethylene offers excellent stiffness, high durability and light weight at an affordable price. Traditional recurved bow and stern and strong keel keep this canoe on track; tumblehome above the waterline narrows the beam to ease paddling. Center yoke thwart offers manageable solo portaging while polyethylene decks with molded handles facilitate 2-person transport. Nylon webbing seats are comfortable and long-lasting; stout ash thwarts and vinyl wrapped gunwales enhance rigidity.
