A traditional canoe constructed with modern materials.

Constructed from a mix of cherry wood, carbon, Kevlar, and fiberglass, this canoe ($3,800) is a beautiful way to get some solo time on the water. At 40 pounds, it's light enough for portaging and car topping, but has a 550-pound capacity for extended voyaging.
