There Has been a bit of interest lately in OC1’s and 2’s. I thought that I’d provide a bit of a resource for people to find OC1/2 manufacturers. This way people can do their research and figure out what they would like and even investigate second-hand Canoes. The Below list is not complete I’m sure but it is a good start. If you know of a manufacturer that is not on this list please leave there details in the comments below. The Australian manufacturers and importers have a star beside their name.
Boulder Bay extreme OC1. Interesting canoe from New Zealand.
*Canoe Inovations produce the NauticaOC1 and the Sea Challenger OC2.
Custom Carbon A Kiwi Company producing the Dragonfly 1, that also make ocean going rowing shells.
Evolution Canoes are a group in Brazil making some traditional style and also a surfing canoe
HUKI Outrigger Canoes produce the V1X and V2X outrigger canoes. They can also do amazing custom designs.
Hawaiian Designs make the Nai’a OC1 and the Honukai OC2.
Kamanu Composites Make the Pueo one of the more popular canoes in Hawaii at the moment.
Kayak Sports is a company in Canada and the US that make the Albatros OC1 and OC2. Seems to be based off of their K1 and K2 designs.
Maui Kanu is a company in Rotorua NZ that make a range of rudderless Va’a and Oc1’s.
Moana Nui Products make the Surfrigger amongst others.
*Ocean Swell used to make a canoe called the Piranha. Now they make the newer lower volume Wahoo OC1 and Wahtoo OC2.
*Outrigger Connection Australia Who import the Osprey, Zephyr, Fusion and Fuze OC1’s and the Stingray OC2. Colin Bartley is now over on the West Coast so if you want to order one on the East Coast contact the Paddle Shop.
Pineula Va’a make the Vantage and Ma’a Afi OC1’s and the Waveblade OC2
*Sabre Marine This is Bill Murray here in Townsville who make the Sabre OC1 and 2.
Sandwich Island Composites. The Eclips is a decent looking canoe from Maui’s North Shore. Also from the pictures it looks like they will do a custom design that will melt you eyes if you want.
Savage Canoes out of Maryland US who specialise in freshwater racing canoes also make an OC1. Personally I would love one of their C1’s.
Southern Outriggers is a Kiwi company that make a sit in OC2 and 2 different models of OC1.
*Stealth Surf Craft Lats is no longer making the Stealth OC1. But it’s worth contacting him if you are interested in the Canoe
*Tiger Canoes Harvey Alison Makes these here under licence
*Whitsunday Fibreglass and Marine or better known as TOM The Outrigger Man make most of the OC6’s in Australia and Peter Corbishly has been making canoes since 1984. They make the Stingray oc1 and 2’s for Outrigger connection.
*Zulu Surf Spears make an OC1 as well as what must be Australia’s best selling rudderless V1. They also make an OC2.
I hope this list helps some people.
