Old Town Saranac


The Old Town Saranac 146 and 160 are excellent family recreational canoes which, thanks to there slightly narrower shape and marginally lower seats, paddle better than most recreational canoes on the market.


Both the Saranac 146 and the 160 are very stable thanks to a low seating position and a flat, hull shape which make them perfect for family canoe trips. They are constructed from a single layer plastic construction which is hard wearing and can handle some abuse, but is also very cost effective and makes the Saranac great value for money.

The Saranac is available in 2 sizes, the 146 and 160, with both canoes featuring 2 contoured seats and a bench seat which is perfect for smaller passengers. The centre seat of both Saranacs also includes a covered storage compartment and cup holders, and the front and rear grab handles incorporate optional rod holder. The Saranac also features comfortable, padded backrests which are ideal for people looking for a relaxed longer paddle.


The Old Town Saranac is an affordable choice for recreational paddlers and family fun.

We offer a delivery service for the Old Town Saranac 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.
