Used Canoes and Accessories



Used canoes can be a good alternative to new ones and I occasionally have some for sale, either by myself, or for clients on consignment. I also sometimes have various canoe accessories for sale, as well, such as forms or trailers. I will be straightforward regarding the condition of these canoes and accessories, so you can be assured of knowing the full condition of each. I can ship canoes anywhere in the country, so don't hesitate to contact me even if you are not close to Olympia, Washington. I can recommend shipping options for any of these canoes or accessories, so don't be put off if shipping is required. Full payment is required prior to shipment or pickup. A shipping and handling charge will be added to orders shipped.

If you have a canoe or accessory that you would like me to list for you on consignment, please contact me for details. If you're looking for a particular type of canoe or accessory I might be able to find it for you as well. Let me know what you're interested in and I'll see if I can locate it. I also sometimes buy used wooden canoes and accessories, so if you have something that just isn't right for you anymore, contact me and let's see if we can find it a new home.

1947 Willits Brothers
$3,500

Gorgeous Willits Canoe!

This gem has been hiding in a garage for decades with very little use after being acquired by the current owner in the 1960's. It was built in mid-1947 and, with the exception of two minor cracks in two interior planks, has only minor cosmetic wear from normal use. It is a typical Willits, being 17' long and built of red cedar planking with mahogany trim. The owner had it professionally  revarnished years ago, and that finish is still intact and in good condition.

This canoe comes with two original Willits paddles - a 5' and a 4.5' version. The finish on these is warn, but the paddles themselves are in good condition.

This canoe is located in Olympia Washington. The owner is asking $3,500 for it. If interested, please contact me by email or phone at (360) 480-5444.

Fixer-Upper Canoe!

Here is a fixer-upper Willits canoe. Serial number and date of this 17' red cedar canoe is unknown, but it looks to be late 1920's. It's in rough shape, with damaged pieces, deteriorated varnish, and peeling fiberglass cover. This will definitely be a labor of love to restore, but is certainly not a goner!

This canoe is located in Spokane County, Washington. The owner is asking $1,000 for it. If interested, please contact me by email or phone at (360) 480-5444.

All Wood Masterpiece!

16'  CANADIAN CANOE CO.  ALL-WOOD, RIB AND BATTEN CANOE. Years ago this canoe had  major damage to the stern. The entire stern was replaced in the Eugene, Oregon boat shop of Tom Kaarhus. Established in 1935 the Kaarhus shop played a major part in the development of the McKenzie River drift boats, now known by fisherman around the world. Bass wood was used for planking on the Canadian all-wood canoes but was not available locally. Red cedar from local mills was used to plank the damaged area. Canoe tacks were also not available so copper boat nails were used as fastenings. While not typical canoe repair the work was done in a skillful fashion by a master craftsman and was returned to the water for many years of enjoyment. 

INCLUDING:  A pair of Canadian Canoe Company paddles, Faux painted with Hickory grain. Probably from the 1920s when Faux painting was popular.  One good CCC label. 57" and 60" long. One with clear finish, one crazed.  Both have 4" cracks in the blades.

This canoe is available in Eugene, Oregon, and the owner is asking $2,000 for all. Will haggle. If interested, please contact me by email or phone at (360) 480-5444.
