Where can I buy a good used canoe?

This question comes up more often than you might think.  Whether it’s the beginning of paddling season or the middle of winter, people always want to know where they can buy a good used canoe, and many of them turn to us as they know our rental fleet consists of some of the best canoes on the market.

Used CanoesYes, we sell used canoes, kayaks and paddleboards

The best time to look for a used canoe from Algonquin Outfitters or Swift 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 are always happy to do 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 rental use and will always have scratches and patches on the hull. All of our canoes have been reconditioned to a “no leak” condition, some may even have had new paint jobs. All are a good value.

Most Kevlar models sell between $1000 and $1800 (about half to a third of their original retail price) and fiberglass models sell between $500 and $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-$800
•    Used Kevlar canoes $1000-$1800
•    Used plastic recreational kayaks $300-$600
•    Used touring kayaks $500-$1200
•    Used whitewater kayaks (call 1-866-KAYAKS-O)

The Elusive $300 Used Canoe

We do get a lot of calls from customers looking for the elusive $300 ultralight Kevlar canoe. Considering that most new Kevlar canoes cost $3000-$4000, you can just imagine what a used one valued at $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).
