Yes, we sell used canoes, kayaks and paddleboards!

Where and when can I buy a good used canoe, kayak or SUP?

[Jump to Paddleboards or Kayaks on this page]

Whether it’s the beginning of the paddling season or the middle of winter, people want to know where they can buy a good, used watercraft. Naturally, many of them turn to us because they know our rental fleet consists of some of the best in the market. Also, they’re often people who’ve rented from us and liked what they paddled.

The best time to look for a used canoe from Algonquin Outfitters or Swift Canoe & Kayak is in the fall, starting in mid-September, and again in the spring (late April and early May). It can be difficult to shop for canoes in the winter but we don’t mind doing a bit of shovelling if the canoe-buying urge strikes you.

Every year, we sell off a number of retired rental canoes, kayaks and SUPs that have seen several seasons of use. These will always have scratches and patches on their hulls but, rest assured, all of our canoes have been reconditioned to a “no-leak” condition, and some may even have new paint jobs, new seats, new yokes and other repairs. All are a good value. Kayaks and SUP are generally sold “as is.”

Most Kevlar models sell for about $1,400 to $2,200 (about half to a third of their original retail price) and fibreglass models generally sell for $600 to $1000. The most popular used models are Algonquin 16′ & 17′ and the Swift Kipawa 16’6″. Please scroll down this page to see the current inventory.

About the elusive $300 used canoe…

We do calls from customers looking for the elusive $300 ultralight Kevlar canoe. Since most new Kevlar canoes cost $3,000-$4,000, perhaps you can imagine what a used one valued at only $300 would look like! One thing to consider is that, usually, the lower the price, the more TLC your used canoe will require (or the heavier it will be).
