          Sportspal and Radisson canoes  


The revolutionary Sportspal didn’t just happen by. A long process of development, experience, and good engineering produced a craft truly ‘Born of Canadian Waters’. Since it’s humble beginnings in a small Northern Ontario garage, the Sportspal Canoe has grown to become a Canadian icon. With continued hard work over the last 60 years to develop the canoe, it has now become one of Canada’s most recognizable watercraft which now has a global customer base.

In 1947 in North Bay, Ontario, Cedric Summers, an ex WWII RCAF Air Frame Engineer and avid fisherman couldn’t find a canoe that suited his needs so he decided to build one. Having worked with lightweight aluminum in his profession of building airplanes for the air force, there was only one material to use - Lightweight Aluminum.

This was the beginning of the journey for the now legendary Sportspal Canoe. The light weight Sportsmen’s Canoe has gone on to be used around the world by thousands of enthusiasts. Originally built in 12’ and 14’ Pointed models in two colours, there are now 8 models with five colour options.

Sportspal canoes are hand crafted from light gauge marine aluminum which withstands the normal use and abuse by Sportsmen but is still easy for Grandpa to load onto his vehicle. With a 38” beam and a 13” depth the 12’ Pointed weighing in at 34 lbs. is a great canoe for fishing, hunting or cruising the shoreline of your favourite lake or stream. Built to last decades the Sportspal Canoe will really become one of your best pals when you take to the water no matter what you use it for.

It is a true honour to carry on the legacy of the Sportspal Canoe. If you should decide to purchase a Sportspal Canoe, thank you very much. Our canoe and our company will not let you down.

About Our Canoes

All of our Sportspal and Radisson Canoes are constructed of a single sheet of 5052 marine grade aluminum which will not become brittle, delaminate, peel, check, waterlog, rot, shrink or swell.

This material makes our canoes one of the lightest on the market and it assures a uniform thickness throughout the hull.

The canoes are easy to carry, handle better on car tops, towing, launching and recovery. It has a high strength-to-weight ratio.

There are eight models, five colours in three lengths to choose from. Every Sportspal and Radisson canoe is built to exacting specifications and workmanship.

Coupled with the many optional accessories, our Sportspal and Radisson Canoes will give you many years of trouble free service.
