Old Town Charles River

 

The Charles River 158 is a modern canoe with design lines of an old classic. The Charles River 158 is constructed with our durable three layer construction and features a shallow arch bottom which provides good overall stability. The tumblehome well above the waterline allows for a smaller paddler to reach comfortably while paddling without having to compromise stability by leaning over. If you like the way it looks, you’ll love the way it paddles.

 

The Charles River Canoe is one of the most traditional graceful canoes available, whilst maintaining fantastic performance for all abilities with its excellent handling characteristics. The Charles River Canoe has black vinyl gunwales, nylon webbed seats and an ash thwart and yoke. The Charles River can be paddled solo or tandem.

 

The Charles River Canoe is available in two different materials - Polylink 3 or Royalex. The Royalex Charles River is much lighter than the Polylink Charles River Canoe.

Materials

 

Charles River 15:

 

material used to construct the Old Town Charles River 15

The Charles River 15 is made from three Layer Polyethylene which has been used to manufacture canoes for decades. Made up of three layers, an inner layer of close cell foam is sandwiched between two layers of high-density polyethylene ensuring that the canoe has superior strength and durability while still remaining buoyant. The three layer polyethylene provides a lighter, stiffer and stronger build than that of a single layered canoe.
