The Saranac’s mid range length and rounded chines make it an excellent vessel for the adventurous day paddler or weekend tripper without sacrificing stability in the process.

Best Boat Ever!

December 4, 2022

My Saranac 14, carbon fusion, has served me well for 9 years. I am a very large woman and the Saranac has a small cockpit, but I can get in and out and find it very comfortable. The tracking, with or without the skeg lowered, is excellent. I take this boat on multi day wilderness camping trips and have room enough for all the gear.

This boat is easy to paddle and quite fast. It’s stable in wind, boat wakes and waves. Like any longer boat made for touring it does not turn on a dime, but it is very maneuverable.

At first, after my flat bottom rec boat, the Saranac seemed a little bit rocky, side to side. But very quickly I became accustomed to it and then it traveled solidly and flat.
