Canoe Shop

Welcome to East Northamptonshire’s new local CANOE & KAYAK SHOP, based right by the lake at the fabulous Rushden Lakes Retail, Leisure & Tourism destination.

We stock fabulous well-known brands (click image to right), focusing on quality craft & accessories aimed primarily at flat water paddling, perfect for exploring our local, beautiful, River Nene and beyond.

All are perfect first-time purchases for the novice paddler, whilst also being great upgrades/replacements for those that have some experience in other craft.

And with a great range of buoyancy aids, paddles, C-Tug portage trolleys, and more, we can help make sure you’re completely ready for your future adventures on the water.

Canoe Shop Opening Times:

Mon - 10.00am to 4.00pm

We’re a friendly bunch down here at The Boathouse, ourselves being a healthy mix of occasional leisure paddlers and qualified canoe/kayak coaches with huge amounts of experience.

We stock a selection of open “Hou” Canadian Canoes, Perception and WaveSport Kayaks & Sit-On-Tops, and lots of great kit to go with them. You’ll be able to come and get great advice (if you want it) on the best craft for you.

You’ll also find a great range of Palm buoyancy aids for paddlers, “Baltic” buoyancy aids for boaters, as well as fabulous-looking floatation clothing and even doggy buoyancy aids in a full range of sizes.

Or perhaps treat yourself to a beautiful Grey Owl Wooden Paddle, or the ever-useful C-Tug trolley, the best portage trolley by far.

Lots more in-store, do come see us soon…
