Since it was founded in 1954, Merrimack Canoe Company has been built on the philosophy of taking advantage of the best advances in technology and materials then combining those with the traditional aesthetics and craftsmanship of the distant past in canoe building.
Merrimack canoes are built one at a time, each one made by hand using simple tools, and they are individually numbered and signed by the craftsmen whose time, attention, and dedication led to the creation of a canoe both stunning and practical, intended to see use over many generations. Unmistakable appointments from the handmade seats to gunwales, deck plates, and handles utilize premium woods like Cherry, Ash, and Walnut to offer a stunning natural palette that perfectly complements the decades-refined hull designs.
Though beautiful, our canoes are made to be used. Whether you’re looking to spend a misty morning on the lake chasing bass, taking on a multi-week expedition in the wilderness, or just taking the kids out for a little paddle around the pond, we want to see our canoes helping you better enjoy your time outdoors and on the water for many years to come.
