Willits Brother 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.

1925 Willits Brothers

Willits 245

New Listing!

Another Willits canoe has come on the market. This one was built in 1925 and is one of the “original” designs. There are very few of this vintage canoe still in existence.

The current owner found the boat in Albany, NY and shipped it back home to the Northwest. The work he did on it was purely cosmetic, putting 5 coats of varnish on the interior and 11 coats on the exterior. The canoe has a repair in the bow area with a small brace added to the inside stem. She shows her age well and is a fine example of the Willits brothers’ pride.

This canoe is available in Seattle, Washington, and the owner is asking $3,800 for it. 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.
  • Reproduction bow spray cover and original carrying bags.
  • Willits Brothers Canoe catalog, repair sheets, and original bill of sale.

This canoe is available in Medina, Washington, and the owner is asking $10,000 for it. If interested, please contact me by email or phone at (360) 480-5444.

Courting Canoe

  A Masterpiece!

Here's your chance to own a true masterpiece of a canoe. This is a 16' Robertson courting canoe, of unknown vintage, but likely from the early 1900's. It has been painstakenly restored by a master craftsman in Oregon. He brought this canoe back to life by producing and installing mahogany trim, floor boards, flat white yacht enamel, brass stem bands, professionally painted pinstripe and white geese pair. The thwarts and 4' bookmatched mahogany decks are original. The bow of the canoe was displayed on the cover of WOODEN CANOE JOURNAL, December 2012.

This canoe will be just the right romantic gift!

This canoe is available in Eugene, Oregon and the owner is asking $5,900 for it. He will consider reasonable offers. If interested, please contact me by email or phone at (360) 480-5444.

1951 Willits Brothers

Willits 813

Reduced Price!!

Here's Willits #813, which has never been refinished. There have been additional coats of varnish added over the years and these are peeling a bit. This canoe has the typical scuffs and scrapes on the hull, but the hull is completely watertight. The rear deck has been replaced, and one outwale and several inner planks have fiberglass patches. A small amount of outer planking in the stern has also been replaced.

While the repairs aren't aesthetically the best, structurally this canoe is rock solid, and great for paddling.

This canoe is available in Chicago, Illinois, and the owner is asking $1,950 for it. If interested, please contact me by email or phone at (360) 480-5444.
