This canoe is the best Canoe we have ever had. We've had old town, mad River, northstar, and some other off name canoes. BUT nothing compares to this one as the description below describes it better than I could. We have traveled the boundary waters since 1993, with many different canoes but nothing like this one. This canoe has been used twice since we had it. Unfortunately we have to give it up because of health reasons. Very hesitantly I am giving up canoeing. Last year I went to loaded onto the rack on my pickup and I could not lift it. I was having a RA episode. Some people call it a flare up of arthritis. Having to give it up canoeing that is unfortunate.
The price is firm, and a very good price for this canoe $2300.00 ( only serious inquiries ) like the description below says it a fast canoe and can carry a lot of weight. It's an ideal canoe for the boundary waters. It tracks great and is fast.
It is in like new condition, not a scratch or scrape anywhere. Braided web seats.
If interested send your your name and phone number and I will call and answer any questions you may have.
Inquiries without a phone number and name Will not be answered. ( No emails or text )
The Chestnut Canoe Company designed the Cronje to be a fast, reliable canoe for people who have a destination in mind. The design is rich in history and is a very able performer. Our reproduction of this venerable canoe retains both the paddling characteristics and the tradition of the original.
The Cronje is ideally suited to paddlers who want to challenge big, open water by covering distance with ease. Fast lines and excellent tracking make it a joy to use. Cargo capacity isn’t compromised for speed and the canoe handles well both with a load and empty. Its lower profile means less wind drag on the water and lower weight on the portage trail. The Cronje is most at home in landscapes with large open lakes like the famed Boundary Waters or Algonquin Park.
Made in Canada.
