NuCanoe started as an idea. Tim Niemier, founder of Ocean Kayak, wanted to put “a billion buts in boats.” This idea led to the NuCanoe’s innovative design that enabled people to do things on the water – fish, hunt, row, dive, crab, paddle, or just relax.

The first NuCanoe was built in early 2006 while it was still part of Tim Niemier’s Wild Design business. By the fall of 2006, Tim partnered with current owner Blake Young to create NuCanoe, Inc. – an independent business that would move forward with the vision.

NuCanoe, Inc. is based in Bellingham, WA, and the boats are roto-molded in Ashtabula, OH. More than 95% of the parts and accessories that go into our boats are made in the USA.

The Pursuit

Pursuit-websiteWhy it’s great for Louisiana

The Pursuit combines the super popular feature of a trolling motor transom with a fast and stable hull and internal rod storage to create an incredible sight fishing boat for Louisiana waters.  This boat is SUPER stable – but sill paddles well.  Pop on a trolling motor if you are traveling a long way.  Great for fly or conventional tackle fishing.
