The Baboosic is a 14’ solo canoe that offers maximum speed and agility for the most discerning paddler, in a lightweight package that can be adapted to a variety of uses, from backcountry canoe camping to freestyle canoeing performances.
The Baboosic is able to perform even the most demanding freestyle canoe maneuvers; it accelerates quickly, maintains speed effortlessly, and turns on a dime even when loaded with gear sufficient for a long solo paddling trip. Even if you’ve been canoeing for decades, this is a boat you won’t grow out of.
Critically it weighs under 40 pounds, making transfer into and out of the water quick and straightforward while operating alone. This is thanks to its hybrid construction, utilizing either strong and lightweight Fiberglass, or kevlar and carbon fiber for added impact resistance, then reinforced with cherry ribs, for a perfect blend of durability, rigidity, and weight. The hardwood gunnels, decks, handles, and seat feature an attention to detail you won’t find elsewhere, and the immaculate gel-coat outer layer looks gorgeous in any setting.
