Outfitted with extra-comfortable seats, the Old Town Saranac 160XT is made for summertime family adventures that you'll remember for years to come. Old Town designed the Saranac 160XT canoe with low seats and added width to increase stability for photography, fishing or family paddling. Flat bottom provides excellent initial stability; straight sides increase security for beginning paddlers. Moderate rocker offers a good balance between maneuverability and tracking. Thermoformed polyethylene offers excellent stiffness, high durability and light weight at an affordable price. Padded seats enhance comfort on the water, and adjustable backrests make it easy to paddle away the afternoon with personalized support. Seats feature cup holders, paddle rests and small storage trays. Bow seat and center seat feature a molded-in rod holder. Need a spot away from splashes? The center bench features storage area under the seat and a 6 in. dry hatch. Molded handles at bow and stern facilitate 2-person transport of the 89 lb. Saranac 160XT canoe.
