Try all our boats on May 18
We will have a demo day in Enfield, New Hampshire on May 18 from 10 am to 5 pm. At the demo you can try our current canoes and kayaks, and every one will be available at a discount if ordered at the demo. We will also have a selection of samples that have been used or are otherwise not "standard" product, and each one will be priced well below the discounted new-boat prices. Please mark your calendar now and watch for updates with more information.
The demo will be at the Enfield Town Beach. Directions from I-89 Exit 17: Turn right off the exit ramp onto Rt 4 East. Just before the bridge across Mascoma River, turn right onto Rt 4A. Follow Rt 4A to the bridge across Mascoma Lake. Our demo is next to the bridge. The beach parking lot is above the road on your right. Note: do not park in the boat launch parking lot.
Quest Touring Kayaks
NEW! This year there is an all-new family of kayaks from Pakboats. The Quests are super light, compact, and easy to put together. Even better - they are a joy to paddle. The 13.5 ft Quest 135 is just right for "small to normal" size people, and the 15.5 ft Quest 155 (see picture) is just right if you need to carry more stuff. With all-polyurethane materials and price tags in the $1500 range you can see why we are excited! Please see us at Canoecopia, March 8 - 10 in Madison WI.
Overstock Special. We have too many XT-17 left, and here is your opportunity to get a 17 ft folding touring kayak at an unbeatable price. We will sell the XT-17 for $1495 until the inventory level is in tune with the other XT models.
We hope you will be inspired by all the opportunities that a truly portable and efficient folding canoe or kayak can offer. Our own paddling trips have taken us to several countries and given us many treasured memories, and we hope you will have similar experiences.
Here you will find a wide selection of folding canoes and kayaks along with accessories to help you get maximum enjoyment out of your Pakboat. And you will find many stories and pictures that customers have sent to us from their trips all over the World. Please click on Canoe Adventures or Kayak Adventures on the left of the screen and explore the adventures others have had to see what opportunities may be in store for you.
A few words about Packable Boats:
Canoes and kayaks that you can pack for travel are generally folding or inflatable. Both have their special advantages, and Pakboats combine the best features of both. In each Pakboat, a complete aluminum frame provides efficient lines and rigidity, while inflatable tubes provide tensioning and flotation. The combination of frame and inflatable tubes make a much more compact structure than air alone, and a Pakboat has much more interior space than a similar size inflatable canoe or kayak. The unique Pakboats structures are also much lighter and pack smaller. Similar size inflatables weigh about 50% more than a Pakboat.
