The Old Town Saranac 146 Canoe features two contoured seats with seat backs plus a bench seat that is perfect for smaller passengers. How can you improve a centuries-old design? In lots of ways, it turns out. Old Town started from scratch with the new Saranac family of canoes. By narrowing the shape and slightly lowering the seats they have developed a model that paddles better than most recreational canoes on the market. The Saranac 146 Canoe features two contoured seats with seat backs plus a bench seat that is perfect for smaller passengers. The bench seat also includes a covered storage compartment and the bow and stern seats incorporate a variety of extras including cup holders, rod holders and storage trays designed to add convenience and versatility to the canoe. The Old Town Saranac 146 Canoe is affordable family fun!

We camp a number of times each year and normally rent a canoe. We decided to take the plunge and purchased the Saranac 146. We needed a center seat and we did not want to spend a great deal of money. It is perfect for us. Loads of built in options. Light enough my wife and I can load it on the truck, and the seats are very comfortable. It is also very stable on the water.
Without a "keel" its just about useless for cold, fast water trout fishing on creeks. I had a Old Town wooden canoe for forty years and I'm refinishing my old one and selling this one. If it wasn't such a hassle to ship this canoe back I would have.
