The Boats We Are Offering

DEDICATED TO MAKING CLASSIC, VERSATILE CANOES AVAILABLE TO PADDLING ENTHUSIASTS

DRAGONFLY

The Dragonfly is a superb river touring and wilderness tripping canoe.

Previously offered by the Curtis Canoe Co. in the 80's, the Dragonfly has been resurrected by Colden Canoe as of April 2011.

Historically, the Dragonfly was an 80's combined class, slalom and downriver, racer and was recognized as one of the top competitors at the 1984 ACA Nationals.

"the Dragonfly...represents one of the most efficient dual-purpose canoes we paddled.  You can satisfy your competitive urges with a run through the rapids, then split for an outing with camping gear.  Its spritely rough-water handling and load carrying seems to do it all." Popular Mechanics Dec 1985

The Dragonfly's first official debut was in June 2011 at the Western Pennsylvania Solo Canoe Rendezvous, which featured a "Dragonfly Reunion".
