Canadian Canoes - Single Layer Construction
Popular Family Canoes for Recreational Canoeing
These canoes are the most popular for recreational canoeing for new paddlers looking to buy the most cost effective canoe setup. Single layer thermoformed polyethylene canoes are less expensive than triple layer and Royalex canoes.
Thermoformed Polyethylene Canoes
Used on most entry level canoes the thermoforming process allows the canoe manufacturer to make high quality boats at less cost. The Saranac Series are manufactured using the thermoforming process. Thermoforming uses a single plastic sheet of high density polyethylene that literally forms a canoe right over a mold. The thermoformed plastic material is durable and provides good abrasion and impact resistance.
