Saranac 160

Like the Saranac 146, the Saranac 160 canoe packs in a ton of features at a great price. The Saranac 160 is longer than its smaller sibling but still features rod holders, storage options and storage trays as well as two contoured seats with comfortable seat backs and a center bench seat (perfect for smaller passengers). The Saranac 160 can be loaded up with gear and performs well on longer trips. A great option for families, anglers or casual canoeists looking for a recreational canoe designed to move through the water with ease.

Flat Bottom Hull

Flat bottom canoes offer great initial stability. They tend to feel very secure on calm water but become slightly less comfortable as the waves get larger or as you lean to one side. Flat bottom canoes are great for the sportsmen and general weekend warrior looking for a solid platform.

Flat Bottom Straight Sides Icon
Straight Sides

Straight-sided canoes are a compromise between flared sides (increased secondary stability) and tumblehome sides (narrower beam at deck for easier reach to water). Straight sides are a great option for most recreational users.

Moderate Rocker Icon
Moderate Rocker

From a side view the canoe has only a slight banana shape while sitting on a hard surface. Moderate rocker in a canoe means it will turn easily on the water but can also track well for short to longer distance paddling.

 Contoured Seat

A comfortable contoured seat that includes padded seating, a cup holder and an adjustable seat back.

Molded-in Carrying Handle Canoe Decks

Also include molded-in cleats and strap eyes for an anchor system in addition to the molded in flush mount. See close up image +
