The Chieftan is a design legend. This canoe shape was originally designed as a trading vessel so had to paddle well on both open water such as lakes, and also to paddle well on moving/white water rivers. It had to paddle well unloaded but also had to be able to carry a good load on the return journey. (Its a larger version of our well respected Prospector) Today we still want the same from our canoes, all be it for different reasons. This boat is a joy on lakes and rivers, and will give you a dry, predictable ride whether you are solo or loaded up for a multi day trip. You can load up to 4 people and it carries a great deal of kit too.

This classic design is all things to all paddlers, the ultimate all round big load carrier. 

If you are looking for a single all in one boat that carries a great load but you can also handle solo then the hōu Canoes Chieftan is going to be the perfect choice no matter what kind of water you are eating for.

We offer this boat in the follow four specifications:

Standard Spec.  All the hōu standard features, our most popular in range with 2 seats.

Lodge Spec.  We do all the hard work for you on this one as this boat comes fully loaded and ready to go.  This is the standard spec boat but fitted out with Peak end airbags, sailing seat and mast foot, kneeling thwart and end grabs so all you have to do is grab your paddle and you are straight on the water.

Custom Set Up. Choose extra seats and spec the canoe how you would like it, Please feel free to call us if you wish to discuss options.

Hou Canoe communication was fantastic from start to finish with quick build/delivery times given the tough circumstances facing 2020. The item itself is of great quality and I cant wait to get it out on the water.
