Huron 16′

“With all the function of our most popular recreational canoe, (the Huron 15’10”) the same reinforced 1/2 ribbed interior, and a wide beam for exceptional stability, the 16′ version of our Huron also offers the classic curves and sweep of the Heritage and Trapper Models. A great canoe for family paddling, hunting with dogs, or fishing. The Huron 16 is also the ultimate Cottage Canoe anyone can paddle. The capacity of the Huron also lends itself to extended tripping for two adults or weekend excursions for a small family.”

Heritage 16′

Due to continuing popularity the Heritage can still be ordered.
The Algonquin Heritage 16′ is the original Langford Canoe. This exceptional craft was lovingly recreated to celebrate our 70th year in 2010. The Beautiful “Plank and Rib” Red Cedar canoe has been fashioned on a painstakingly refurbished original 1940’s circa mould.Originally limited to a production of just 70 canoes the Algonquin Heritage 16′ offers the true enthusiast a chance to recapture a piece of Canadian History with. The massive recurve stems, pronounced “tumble-home” and gunwales set this wonderful design apart, and immediately trigger memories of yesteryear.

Designed with definite purpose in mind the Algonquin Heritage 16′ was/is a true work horse, shaped to carry paddler and gear across all sizes of lakes in all types of weather. The deep hull, clean lines and increasing rocker allow this 16 footer to move quickly and respond well whether being paddled empty or loaded. The Western Red Cedar Planks contrast sharply against the clear Eastern White Cedar Ribbing as does the Solid White Ash-Inwales, paired to the beautiful Antique-Mahogany-Outwales. Over 2000 brass tacks shine through the hull’s mirror polished low maintenance epoxy skin. With time each unique Red Cedar plank will darken which dramatically alters the look of the canoe as it ages.

An heirloom to be passed on to future generations the Algonquin has been constructed with the utmost care and attention to detail.

This watercraft symbolises everything that Langford Canoe has stood for, over the last 70 years.

Legacy 16′

This 16′ Canoe has been refined to the point of perfection. The Legacy has a half or “sister ribbed” White Cedar interior. The planked hull is made from select pieces of British Columbia Red Cedar. Over time the reddish tint will darken considerably creating a remarkable contrast between it, the brass tacks, and the Eastern White Cedar ribs. The Legacy is also available with canvas a skin. Each hand built hull has a distinct pattern created by the variances in colour found in the planking. The Legacy’s hull has the finest lines found in any canoe, being both extremely efficient and maneuverable. “There is simply nothing that compares”… This is the constant refrain heard from anyone lucky enough to have paddled the worlds finest 16 footer.

Prospector 17’3″

The Langford Prospector’s shallow draft and obvious length (over 17 feet), make this canoe both extremely stable very quick, efficiently hauling large loads at a unbelievable pace. The original model was used by guides, ferrying “sportsman” to their destinations. The design allowed for the canoe even when heavily laden, to easily glide up and down shallow rivers and safely move over larger lakes. The artful blend of varying hues of Red Cedar planking, juxtaposed against the white cedar ribs, creates a striking visual impression further reinforced by the canoes size. The planked, sister, and structural ribbed interior lends a unrivalled feeling of substance and sturdiness. The 17.3’s large efficient hull gave rise to the Langford Prospector 17.4 one of our most popular performance tripping designs. The 17.3 Langford Prospector is quite literally the finest cottage canoe money can buy, safely plying the waters with the entire family, and if the need arises one can put it to work filling it’s historical role as a heavy duty hauler.
