Hello 2014, You’re Looking More Expensive Than Last Year!

Right, at this stage you’ve probably seen/heard what most of the bright and shiny new gear for 2014 is going to look like.

What you may not have heard is that (nearly) all of it is going up in price!  Recession or not, the price of raw materials, labour, transport, etc.. are all still increasing.  Some of the increases below happened a full 12 months ago but either our distributor or us subsidised the true price, until now.

Price changes typically occur between October and December of any given year.

The List below is a summary of the biggest movers and shakers for 2014.  N.B. 2014 pricing for Wilderness, Mad River, Dagger and Wavesport is already in effect.  2014 pricing for Liquid Logic becomes active at the start of December.

Our advice to you, our customers, would be if there is a canoe or kayak you are considering purchasing in the near future, contact us know as we may still be able to source it for you at the 2013 price.

  1. As the year progresses the price of everything increases! From labor charge to raw materials everything! Hence ultimately the price of the kayaks also increase! But Wooden Boat USA always keeps customer satisfaction as its top priority hence provides quality wooden boats and kayaks for sale at an affordable price!
