Built on traditional forms using long proven methods, a custom canoe by Jeanne Bourquin will carry you and future generations on many adventures across quiet waters.
Visually the lines of Bourquin canoes are similar to those of the old E.M. White canoes first produced in Maine over 100 years ago. Recently, Jeanne has been adding an Ojibway profile to her canoes, calling them Indian Otter and Indian Atkinson Traveler.
Wondering if a Wood & Canvas canoe is the right choice for you? Owner, Builder, Jeanne Bourquin answers the question, Why Wood?
