My goal is to put a billion butts in boats

NuCanoe Inc. and Tim Niemier, founder of Ocean Kayak and pioneer of the sit-on-top kayak movement, announce the debut of Tim's new hybrid design at the Outdoor Retailer Summer Market show. Incorporating design aspects of a sit-on-top kayak and sport canoe, the NuCanoe is an incredibly stable, safe, and easy-to-use watercraft.

The NuCanoe is the first design from Tim's Wild Design product development company to be presented at Outdoor Retailer. "My goal is to put a billion butts in boats," says Tim, "and the NuCanoe will contribute towards that."

Tim designed the NuCanoe to be easy to use and versatile without sacrificing performance. "I made the NuCanoe extra wide to increase flotation and stability. Yet, due to the unique hull design, it is still light, responsive, and nimble on the water. Anglers, hunters, divers, and leisurely paddlers really enjoy the features and balanced performance of the NuCanoe."

Blake Young, President of NuCanoe Inc., sees the benefits of Tim's innovative design in the marketplace. "Rental operators and camps appreciate the NuCanoe's inherent safety and ease of use. Anglers love its stability, enabling them to stand to cast and land fish in a wide variety of waters - from the salt flats of Florida to the lakes of Washington. Divers are impressed with being able to easily enter & exit the NuCanoe from the water."

Tim Niemier will be available at the Open Air Demo and Outdoor Retailer show to discuss the NuCanoe's design features and to demo the NuCanoe in the paddle tank.
