The Perfect Family Boat

Rated 5 out of 5
February 4, 2022

Last season our family ordered a Keewaydin 16 Pack Boat/Combi and it has been the perfect family boat. Ours is a custom configuration that has the pack boat seats at bow and stern and the adjustable height canoe seat in center. The flexibility and versatility of this arrangement is fantastic.

We regularly have dad driving from the stern, mom in the bow, and a couple of small kids playing in the middle. Also useful has been dad paddling from the center position and managing kids; mom taking a break to read in the comfy stern pack boat seat, and a kid (or two if small) up front playing in the bow. We’ve even loaded up with three adults (1 of the 3 a Clydesdale), a small kid, and some day trip gear and had a great day on the river with no trouble keeping up with companions in kayaks.

I’ve also used it for a number of solo paddles and some light tripping. It’s perfectly suited for this use. A little weight in gear cuts down the windage when paddling solo, but if using a kayak paddle it’s not really an issue even lightly loaded.

And, to top things off, it’s gorgeous. We have the expedition Kevlar in the Ruby color with a white bottom and routinely get comments about what a handsome boat it is. The weight is probably right at or under 50lbs in the sturdiest laminate with carbon trimmings. So it’s easy to load on and off of a tall SUV but not so delicate that I ever hesitate to let some novice youngsters take it out for a lap of the lake.

I’d also note that working with the Swift team was a treat and their delivery to the mid-Atlantic area was impressively quick.
