Keewaydin 16 Combi

The Keewaydin 16 Combi operates as both a tandem and solo tripping canoe, allowing you to alter your setup depending on your paddling needs. With a centre seat in the balance point for quick and efficient high-volume solo tripping, and with tandem canoe seats for trips with a partner, you can outfit your equipment to suit your trip. A detachable yoke for the balance point makes portaging quick and easy. For paddlers who enjoy solo tripping and require space and volume, or for tandem trippers who want to keep their options open, the Keewaydin 16 Combi offers the benefits of multiple boats in one efficient design.

Great canoe!

Rated 5 out of 5

Had an opportunity to spend 5 days paddling through Algonquin Park. It tracks extremely well both solo and with two paddlers. Very comfortable to paddle with double and single blade paddles, handled wind and waves extremely well, stable and easy to maneuver. Easy/well balanced to portage, lots of room to carry gear. Fit and finish is flawless, beautiful canoe all around. Thank you Swift.

This canoe is no “jack of all trades, master of none.” The Keewaydin 16 combi does everything well. Whether you’re solo or bringing the family, this boat seems to simultaneously track in a straight line while also being maneuverable. And at under 40 lbs, you have no excuse to not hit the lake for one more luxury cruise. This boat has played a central part in our family’s “happy place” and will continue to be for many years to come. What’s more, it is crafted by some of the best people around who take a personal interest in meeting all of your needs. There aren’t many CEOs who will discuss your build in detail over the phone and personally handle all parts of the transaction. What a class act, and it filters down to the entire organization.

The perfect short trip/day boat?

Context: After 40+ years of canoeing in everything from Grumman bonkers to Chestnuts, WeNoNahs and a 111-year-old wood & canvas Morris, I was looking for a comfortable, lightweight modern cruiser with a good turn of speed for solo fishing, day paddles and the occasional two-person 3+ day trip. I’m 230lbs and bow paddler ~150lb. The Kee Combi is stable for two, *surprisingly *quick, nicely maneuverable in rivers, tracks very well, handles open water and easy riffles with a basic load and is light enough for this old man when portaging. As a solo boat, there’s ample carrying capacity – I’ve found tracking improves with a light load. The ExpKevlar hull is *tough and light, and the CKT gunnels are bulletproof. You’ll probably fiddle with the detachable yoke a bit until you get used to mounting it securely, though it’s definitely worth it to have the combi seat as an option for soloing. If I were younger I’d probably go with a Kee17 because I’d be taking more and longer trips. But for all-around use the Kee16 continues to reward every outing. A phenomenal boat.
