This is a short, behind the scenes, film that follows our skilled team around. Get inspired by the craftsmanship and attention to detail that goes into every LINCOLN!

Our Simple Mission

Our mission is to make the highest quality and best performing lightweight composite canoes and kayaks in the world. We continue to bring superior leadership, creativity, authenticity, and thoughtfulness to everything we do.

We've been around a while. 

LINCOLN had its humble beginnings in Stow, Massachusetts in 1959 and since that time has always called New England home.

It all started when two young college students had just returned from a summer spent exploring northern Canada's wilderness by canoe. Their craft was an 80-pound, 18-foot aluminum canoe, (state-of-the-art at the time). They paddled. They trudged along. All the while, they thought "there must be a better way".

Upon their return, they set out to find a better way. They built the first Lincoln to be one that would be lighter and easier to handle. Today, we continue to tackle each boat with the same end result: an incredibly lightweight vessel with precision handling and beautiful lines.

Our kayaks are assembled from two parts, the deck and the hull. Pictured above is a Chebeague LV part in the assembly line. 

Lincoln continues to lead the way in using the latest technologies and materials to create some of the finest small crafts on the market.

LINCOLN is owned by Marc Bourgoin. Marc acquired the business in 2009.

Today we're proud to not only recognize and continue a legacy, but to continue to mold LINCOLN into a strong brand, well-known for innovation and excellence in product quality and performance.
