Yes, we sell used canoes, kayaks and paddleboards

Where can I buy a good used canoe?

This question comes up more often than you might think! 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 canoe. Naturally, many of them turn to us because they know our rental fleet consists of some of the best canoes on 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. It can be difficult to shop for canoes in the winter but we son’t mind doing a bit of shoveling, if the canoe-buying urge strikes you!

Every year, we sell off a number of retired rental canoes 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. All are a good value.

Most Kevlar models sell for about $1,000 to $2,000 (about half to a third of their original retail price) and fiberglass models generally sell for $500 to $900. 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.

Estimated Price Ranges

•    Used aluminum canoes $500-$700
•    Used fiberglass canoes $500-$900
•    Used Kevlar canoes $1,500-$2,500
•    Used plastic recreational kayaks $300-$700

The Elusive $300 Used Canoe

We do get a lot of 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).
