Construction


Three Layer Polyethylene


The Old Town Penobscot 164 & 174 our made from three Layer Polyethylene which has been used to manufacture canoes for decades. Made up of three layers, an inner layer of close cell foam is sandwiched between two layers of high-density polyethylene ensuring that the canoe has superior strength and durability while still remaining buoyant. The three layer polyethylene provides a lighter, stiffer and stronger build than that of a single layered canoe.
