1925 Willits Brothers

Willits 224

Early Willits Canoe!

Willits canoes just keep coming out of the woodwork! This one is from 1925 and is an example of one in which the brothers were using alternatives to mahogany. The red cedar hull is complimented with the use of teak for the decks, thwarts, and outwales while the seats are of mahogany.

The canoe is in good condition, showing typical wear marks to the hull. It has been modified by the addition of a nameplate on the outer hull, a hole in the king plank to accept a sailing mast, and oarlocks have been mounted near the rear 1/4 thwart. It has been refinished.

This canoe has been owned by the same family since it was purchased from the Willits brothers in 1925, but it's time to be passed along to another loving family!

It is available in Freeland, Washington, and the owner is asking $2,000 for it. If interested, please contact me by email or phone at (360) 480-5444.

It has a pair of bilge keels on the hull.

Willits Invoice

Amazing Condition!

Willits Brothers Canoes like this don't come along very often! This one is #842 and it has never been refinished. In addition to the interior ribs being in near-mint condition, the exterior has never been sanded or refinished with the exception of a few blemishes receiving touch-up varnish to protect the wood. The tack heads are dimpled below the surface of the wood just as they were when the canoe came out of the factory.

The exterior has a few blemishes and wear marks from typical use, but these are strictly cosmetic. The rear deck has a couple of minor cracks that would be easily repaired. Because the varnish is original it is beginning to fail in a few spots such as the gunwales and keel.

The canoe has two sets of bilge keels, an option offered by the brothers, but not commonly installed. This canoe includes several desireable features including:

  • 2 Willits paddles (4.5 and 5 ft lengths)
  • Outboard motor mount
  • Upholstered seat back
  • Original wool rug
  • 4 car top pads and carrying bag
  • Willits Brothers Canoe catalog
  • Bill of sale and invoice

This canoe is available in Tacoma, Washington, and the owner is asking $8,000 for it. If interested, please contact me by email or phone at (360) 480-5444.

Willits Brothers Sail Rig

Willits Sail

Your Chance to Sail!

Always wanted to sail your canoe? Here's your chance. This is a sail rig for a Willits canoe. The spar and boom are original Willits construction while the sail is a well-made replica. The mast is not an original Willits, but will serve its purpose.

Willits sailing accessories are very difficult to come by and don't come on the market very often. While this one is not wholly original, it is functional and is an opportunity to round out part of your collection of Willits add-ons. It will also work wonderfully in any canoe if you don't own a Willits.

This sailing accessories are available in Freeland, Washington, and the owner is asking $595 for them. If interested, please contact me by email or phone at (360) 480-5444.

Loaded With Extras

Here is a unique Willits canoe (#679) with a one-of-a-kind factory fitting for sailing. It is of typical Willits construction using double-planked red cedar with teak trim. It is unusual in that it was set up for sailing with a sailing thwart and mast step installed in place of the bow seat. This canoe is in extremely good condition, with a masterful refinish job. The interior looks nearly as good as the day it came from the factory, as there are no wear marks from feet or gear.

Here's what's included with the canoe:

  • 1 set of car top carrier blocks, straps, carrying bag
  • Sailing accessories including fin keel, rudder, mast step, mast thwart, and rudder gudgeons. There is no mast or sail.
