Paddle Portage Canoes Paddle Portage Canoes

Wenonah Backwater - from $5720

For those who are sick of hauling the tinnie on and off of the ute or van, this is the boat for you! Incredibly stable and lightweight, it can move along quite well with a small electric motor but can also handle a small petrol outboard. The Backwater also goes well under paddle and doesn't draft much - allowing you to get in and out of low-tide spots better than the competition!

Delivery Info

We've worked out how to ship our boats to nearly every location across this gigantic country. In most cases we use designated canoe/kayak couriers to transport our boats, as the mainstream couriers struggle with the size. An indication of cost to courier a boat is: Sydney - $150, Melbourne - $250, ACT - $150, Brisbane - $250, Adelaide - $350, Tasmania - $550, Sunshine Coast - $250, Townsville - $350, Cairns - $400, Perth - $350-$600.

Purchase or Enquire

Due to customisation options, stock levels and delivery variances, our boats are not purchasable online (we'd love to help ensure you are ordering the right boat for you first). Please contact us if you have any questions, or would like to purchase, and we'll go through everything with you.
