Taking design elements from kayaks, the Old Town Next Canoe will change the way you paddle. By combining the openness of a canoe with the maneuverability of a kayak, Old Town has created a truly unique paddling experience that paddlers of all skill levels will enjoy. The open design provides plenty of storage space for equipment and gear and has that timeless, organic feel of an old school canoe. The Element seating system lets you make adjustments for complete comfort on the water, or it can be removed all together if you opt to paddle on your knees. A slightly rockered bow allows the boat to track well across flat water, and the boat's pronounced tumblehome results in a more efficient paddle stroke that will excel on big, open waters.
