The Baboosic is a 14’ solo canoe that offers maximum speed and agility for the most discerning paddler, in a lightweight package that can be adapted to a variety of uses, from backcountry canoe camping to freestyle canoeing performances. 

 

The Baboosic is able to perform even the most demanding freestyle canoe maneuvers; it accelerates quickly, maintains speed effortlessly, and turns on a dime even when loaded with gear sufficient for a long solo paddling trip. Even if you’ve been canoeing for decades, this is a boat you won’t grow out of. 

 

Critically it weighs only 40 pounds, making transfer into and out of the water quick and straightforward while operating alone.  This is thanks to its hybrid construction, utilizing either strong and lightweight Fiberglass, or kevlar and carbon fiber for added impact resistance, then reinforced with cherry ribs, for a perfect blend of durability, rigidity, and weight. The hardwood gunnels, decks, handles, and seat feature an attention to detail you won’t find elsewhere, and the immaculate gel-coat outer layer looks gorgeous in any setting.

 
UPGRADE OPTIONS:
The best canoe you can own is one that's made exactly to your tastes. Numerous upgrades are available to tailor your canoe to your personal preferences, from customizable colors, trim options, floor prints, and even laser-engraved deck plates. A Merrimack canoe is more than just a tool to spend time on the water; it's a handcrafted work of art, tailor-made to the individual holding the paddle.

    Baboosic Solo

    Extremely responsive: rewards good technique, and lets you know immediately when you get off-balance. Ideal for freestyle. Custom color scheme gets lots of compliments. Then I tell folks to look at the inside; their reactions are priceless.

    BABOOSIC - 14' SOLO CANOE

    Posted by Debra on Sep 6th 2021

    I needed to paddle a different canoe than my Wenonah Argosy after bilateral knee replacement. I needed more stability. The beauty of this boat is that it moves with elegance while remaining quite stable. My partner has an older Baboosic and insisted I use hers after she noticed that she could paddle with relative stability without kneeling. In the 14 months since my surgery I have gone from paddling with both legs out to total kneeling (I raised the seat). I paddle little winding rivers in the New Jersey Pinelands. The Baboosic seamlessly maneuvers through obstacles, curves and turns. It handles really well going upstream as well. As my knees continue to heal, so does my ability to try out more of my paddling skills. The Baboosic has yet to disappoint. I love my new boat.
