1949 Old Town
16ft Sail Canoe
with Sponsons



Excellent Restored

1949 Old Town Sail
Canoe w/Sponsons 16ft


Canoe Length: 16ft

Serial Number: 152742 16

Restoration Completed – 4/13/2024

Very solid and beautiful canoe. Identified by many as “unsinkable” as the 2 sponsons keep the canoe floating even if completely filled with water. There are air chambers built out on each side and extending from stem to stem. At the middle, the sponsons are 4” wide and 5” deep.

Ideal setup for a sailing canoe with the sponsons to greatly reduce the chance of turning over. And, even if turned over or full of water, will not sink.

Additionally, without the sailing gear a great canoe for families as very safe – see picture and Old Town ad showing 3 or more young kids sitting on the edge without flipping over.

No cracked or broken ribs or planking – excellent structural condition! Half rib construction for more strength and durability. Purchased from the original owner with original sail equipment: lee boards, lee board support, mast and boom, rudder and sail. Lastly, includes a wooden back rest – see pictures.

See pictures for build sheet and for spec sheet.

Free delivery up to 100 miles. After that, we can discuss.

Please feel free to ask questions. I can deliver to within 100 miles free of charge with added cost if longer distances. Else, local pickup or buyer arranged commercial shipping.
