For this season, Apache has an extensive fleet of canoes available for you to try. We will be attending various events around the country with up to 8 canoes.
If you can’t wait, then there are many other ways you can try out an Apache canoe. Firstly, the demo fleet lives in Wirral, so call us to arrange to paddle the canoe or canoes you would like to try. Local demos are free and without obligation and will be based on a local canal or lake. We can also supply buoyancy aids and paddles, so if this is to be your first canoe and you have none of your own kit, this is no problem.
Alternatively, the fleet will be at Alderford Lake in Whitchurch, for hiring by the hour. Have a look at the Hire page for details.
For a large party requiring demos, or if you belong to a club, it is possible to bring the fleet to you, in which case we may ask for a contribution to the costs of the expenses.
Canoes in the demo fleet at the moment are:
Periodically, we will sell the demo boats too, so if you fall in love with the canoe you tested and would like to jump the build queue, then this may be possible too.
As part of our demo equipment we have a number of paddles made by our friends at Edenwood. Like our canoes, these are tailored from a range of classic designs.
Select your design, then chose the material your paddle will be made from and have it fitted just for you. Ask us to show you when you have a demo of our canoes.
