Have you been wondering what it's like to paddle the new NEXT from Old Town? We took four folks out on the water for a day of paddling and then asked them what they thought about it. Here's what they had to say...
The NEXT is a boat for one, but a craft built for all with bold colors, clean lines and a robust feature set. Crafted using the 3-layer construction technique that Old Town helped pioneer and patent, the NEXT incorporates some of the brand’s newest innovations like the Element seat system and blends them with the brand’s years of expertise to create a boat only Old Town could bring to market.
Lightweight, fun and easy to paddle, the NEXT is built for the adventurous, independent spirit. It has a pronounced tumblehome design which reduces the amount of reach required when paddling; improving paddling ability for both the two-bladed and traditional single blade paddler. The NEXT has a trim profile, sitting low to the water to reduce drag in wind, while Old Town engineers crafted the boat’s hull to include a subtle rocker that provides straight, smooth tracking.
