Hey y'all!

Blackfly is stoked to announce that the Condor, our 11-foot plastic canoe, will be going into production! It's at the mold makers now, and we anticipate hatching Condors by the beginning of summer.

While the original goal was just to make a fast boat, the Condor project has evolved into creating the ultimate long plastic canoe, something that will be right at home racing, on a multi-day trip, and everything in between. Jeremy put it best when he said, "I want it to be the boat that I want to paddle 90% of the time I go canoeing." It has taken four years, and there has been a lot of learning along the way, but we're truly excited with the end product, and we hope you will be as well.

Final specs will come when we get our first production boats, but for now we know it will be 11'2" and will be 30" wide. We're aiming to have demos for all of our summer tour dates, including NW Kanu Fest and Colorado Kanu Fest.

We'll know for sure once we get a production boat. Prototypes were about 60lbs but there is usually a change between prototype and production

For sure Tony! We're planning on having a tandem configuration as well. I think the Condor will be a great boat for larger paddlers
