Old Town Next


New from Old Town comes the Next, a canoe that has been designed to be used like a kqyak - gone are the days of making that difficult compromise between the easy acces of an open canoe or the more comfortable seat of a kayak.


With its classic canoe shape and Old Town heritage, you know that the Next will be well designed and perform very well on the water. However for those who have always had issues with the standard seats you normally get in canoes and lack of comfortable backrests, the Next now has an amazing seating position that delivers comfort in spades.


The high back seat is fully adjustable and set just rear of centre to not only deliver maximum comfort but also to trim the boat and provide both ease of paddling and also manoeuvrablility on the water. The Next has been designed to be used with a double bladed kayak paddle, so for anyone who has had trouble mastering the J-stroke and regularly frustrated trying to keep a canoe straight, this canoe could be the answer to your prayers.

We offer a delivery service for the Old Town Next throughout the UK & Ireland to home and work addresses.

Delivery times are estimates based on years of experience; we do not offer a guaranteed timed delivery service. Our overnight service works well for the core more densely populated areas of the UK for Clothing and Equipment orders. However more remote less densely populated areas will not be covered by a next day service.

Delivery of canoes and kayaks is classed as “ugly freight” because mechanical handling and automatic parcel processing cannot be used; therefore a delivery time of 3-5 working days is more realistic. For remote location that delivery time will be dependent on the local courier’s ability to onward ship the goods. Not all areas of the UK are serviced by vehicles that can handle canoes and kayaks. Online orders can be tracked online using the courier’s website – tracking details will be provided. We make every effort to deliver goods within the estimated time scales.

The delivery price will be shown in the shopping basket.
