Sawyer Canoe Company molds were purchased by Scott Smith in November 2006. Scott now builds Sawyer Canoes as a product of his Superior Canoe Company near Portland Michigan. Sawyer had a long, proud history of offering quality boats at an affordable price. For 30+ years Sawyer Canoes had the best design, performance, workmanship and warranty in the industry. Scott B. Smith is committed to that credo. Don't buy a canoe until you try a Superior Canoe, after all, with reasonable care, it will last the rest of your life.

A pride to own, a delight to paddle.
