Old Town Penobscot 174


The Old Town Penobscot Canadian Canoe is one of the most popular open canoes for families due to its large carrying capacity and easy paddling characteristics.


Made from tough and strong Polylink 3 plastic durability is not an issure, the hull shape slips through the water, glides over rocks and accepts being dragged up on gravel shorelines without complaining. It's sturdy enough to forgo a metal framework or keelson. The perfect canoe for the family or those planning more extended canoeing trips. Wood/webbed seats, ash thwarts, ash carrying yoke, black vinyl gunwales, bow and stern decks with grab handles.


Supplied with 2 fixed seats, young children can kneel in the centre of the canoe or optional ABS snap in seats can be fitted.


Please note, the Old Town Penobscot in Royalex is now discontinued. For a lightweight alternative see our range of Lightweight Open Canoes.

We offer a delivery service for the Old Town Penobscot 174 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.
