Paluski Canoe & Kayak uses the latest rotomolding technology, resulting in hulls that retain their shape under the roughest conditions and treatment



Paluski Boats was founded in 1980 by Graham Wilkins, who, at that time, was a member of Canada’s National Rowing Team. Beginning with the manufacturing of sliding seat rowing shells, by 1985 production expanded to include kayaks and canoes. At this same time, the fast-growing company welcomed a partnership with Patrick Smith, an expert in fiberglass lamination.

By 1987, Wilkins and Smith moved Paluski Boats to its current location in Lakefield, Ontario. Within two years, Paluski produced the Spirit Kayak – one of Canada’s first rotomolded polyethylene kayaks.

A natural addition to their product line, in 2005 Paluski also began manufacturing canoe, kayak, and rafting paddles and oars.

Today, hundreds of individuals and companies across North America enjoy Paluski Boats’ products. Along with an appreciation and discernment for new manufacturing technologies and techniques, Paluski Boats maintains its guiding principles of durability and outstanding value for its customers.

Canoeing and kayaking are two excellent ways to enjoy the great outdoors and reconnect with nature.

It's a lifestyle that allows people to discover new places and, sometimes, learn new things about oneself.

Paluski Boats has been connecting people to rivers, streams and lakes with their canoes, kayaks and paddles in North America and around the world since 1980 - we are proud of our heritage and we welcome you to give our products a try.
