We Call Them “Previously Enjoyed” So We Don’t Make Our Used Canoes Feel Bad

Our busy season has arrived. Grand Marais is now bustling with visitors from all corners of the U.S. and Canada. Not a day goes by when someone doesn’t ask whether we are selling used canoes, kayaks and stand up paddle boards. The answer is yes we are.

Previously enjoyed* kevlar canoes are always available. Since many of these are paddled in the BWCAW, we want to sell them while they are still in good shape. That way you can use them for years and then pass them down to your kids.

Kayak availability is a little different. We do have them from time to time during the summer, but your best bet is to call and get one set aside after the season comes to a close. That is shortly after Labor Day. And SUP’s are handled the same way.

You can get a great deal on a Maelstrom Vaag kayak

New boats on sale? The best deals are on Maelstrom kayaks. We have at least one Vitol and two Vaags left in stock. These kayaks have been discontinued by Maelstrom, so we want to move them out. They are composite sea kayaks and are very responsive and fast.

Interested in any of these? Give us a call at 218-387-3136 and we can take care of you.

*We like to use the term “previously enjoyed” instead of “used” because “used” sounds so cold. We have a connection with our boats and we don’t want our “used” boats to feel bad.

    Do you sell you used snowtrekker tents? If so what are the prices?

  2. Jack

    Thanks for asking, Dan! We do not sell our used Snowtrekker tents at this time. Maybe in the spring.

  3. Callum

    do you still have the Vaags? what price where you looking for? Condition?


  4. SHWS

    We have no Vaags left in stock. We do have one Vitol left which needs some repair as it was dropped on the asphalt when in transit. It can be fixed either with a skid plate or with a repair kit if you are handy at that sort of thing. If interested, please contact the store at 218-387-3136.

    Do you sell used Hoks

  10. SHWS

    We do not currently have any used Hoks in our inventory but check back with us at the end of the winter and we may have some for sale.

    If the snow we are getting has you hankering for some Hoks right now, you can get a new set of Hok skis and bindings for $319. Or you can get our Hok package deal for $429, which includes the skis and bindings, plus Black Diamond Traverse Telescoping Ski Poles, Swix Universal Glide Wax and Swix Skin Wax. In either case, we can ship it in the 48 contiguous United States for free. If you live up in Canada, call us so we can give you the details on how we ship there.

    Hi, i am looking to buy a canoe, something suitable for long tracks on flat water, but also including rivers, maybe a Nova Prospector 17, or equivalent. Im From Thunder Bay, so i much rather do the research first before making a trip.

    It needs to be fairly light, as i bring an extra 100ibs then most, in Camera Equipment.
    You can call my business number or email 8072525436.

    Hello there. I was wondering if you’ve still got the vitol that’s in need of some repair? If so what would the price be??

  13. Jack

    Hi Jamia. We still have it and now it is repaired. We are selling it for $2000.
