My partner Joan Barrett and I have over 40 years’ experience building wooden boats that combine classic lines with the most advanced marine technologies. Our workshop produces C4 and C15 sprint racing canoes, prototypes for production designs, elegant one-off custom boats, as well as repairs and restorations of historically significant craft. The lessons we learn in the workshop are passed on to first time builders in the form of how-to books, classes, hard-to-find building materials, and kits. We measure our success in the thousands of Bear Mountain canoes and kayaks that emerge from home workshops around the world.

Overview

Build your own canoe with high-quality kits and plans from Bear Mountain Boats. For those beautiful days on the river or an evening on the lake by yourself, this is the canoe. The asymmetrical design (forward sections are finer than those aft) can be paddled from a tractor-style seat while switching sides every eight strokes, or from a traditional seat with the boat heeled over. Over two and a half inches of tumblehome bring the gunnels in for comfortable paddling.
The large tumblehome was designed into this boat for ease of paddling, but what it does to the appearance is dramatic. The narrow gunnel width emphasises the slim lines, and the high section curvature near the waterline looks elegant. We think you’ll find this canoe paddles even better than it looks.
