From Old Town, the company with a rich 100-year history in paddlesports, comes a product that represents the future.
The NEXT is a totally fresh and uniquely fun solo experience that brings a century of expertise into one truly amazing personal watercraft unlike any other. Built for one, but designed for all, the NEXT represents a new generation of boating for today's generation of paddle, outdoors and fitness enthusiasts.
Now this little boat is almost certain to get tongues wagging in both canoe and kayak circles due to the fact that it is an open canoe designed to be used like a kayak. Gone are the days of making that difficult compromise between the easy access of an open canoe or the more comfortable seat of a kayak.
With its classic canoe shape and Old Town heritage, you know that the Next will be well designed and perform very well on the water. However for those who have always had issues with the standard seats you normally get in canoes and lack of comfortable backrests, the Next now has an amazing seating position that delivers comfort in spades.
The high back seat is fully adjustable and set just rear of centre to not only deliver maximum comfort but also to trim the boat and provide both ease of paddling and also manoeuvrablility on the water. The Next has been designed to be used with a double bladed kayak paddle, so for anyone who has had trouble mastering the J-stroke and regularly frustrated trying to keep a canoe straight, this canoe could be the answer to your prayers.
