Ally 17 DR Foldable Canoe


This product is no longer available, but don't go just yet.


  • Suited to flatwater, the tumblehome shape and straight keel enhances tracking and adds side-to-side stability
  • Perfect for 2 paddlers, this foldable canoe has enough gear-holding capacity for multiday expeditions
  • The Ally 17 DR foldable canoe assembles without special tools or skills; when collapsed, it can be stored in a 42 x 24 x 18 in. space (storage sack not included)
  • PVC-skin won't crack if you scrape an unexpected rock, and foam bottom mat is soft on knees and provides an additional source of protection
  • 6082 T6 aluminum frame is strong, lightweight and corrosion-resistant
  • Plastic, molded seat can be adjusted for sitting or kneeling positions and for adjusting the canoe's trim
  • 45 lb. weight means you'll have an easy time portaging, and the flexible feel to the boat means you'll glide easily over chop and waves
  • Package includes canoe (skin, seats, foam mat, chines, keel, ribs, gunwales, bow and stern), a mallet for assembly and a repair kit
  • Approximate setup time is 30 min. with 2 people; 1 hr. with a single person
