Native Watercraft: Pioneering brands whose innovation and high quality manufacture reflect the interests of the specialty paddlesports audience. Available only through specialty outdoor retailers, Native Watercraft sales are supported with excellent quality control and customer service.

We have studied the attributes of revered boat designs, including those that have withstood scrutiny for over a century and we are listening to the interests and needs of today's paddlers, while applying design solutions that are supported by state-of-the-art design, materials and production capability. Over a few short years we have raised the bar on comfort, gear accessibility and user-friendly outfitting, and continue to explore and experiment.

Made in the USA Best of all, we are innovating and producing products in Greensboro, NC, USA! Made in the USA

Native Watercraft offer a LIFETIME WARRANTY on every product because we are proud of our workmanship, and will stand behind the product for as long as you own it. If you have registered your boat and feel that it has failed due to faulty materials or workmanship, bring it to your Native Watercraft retailer and we will repair or replace it. Plus we are making every effort to minimize the natural resources required to produce our products and, where possible, utilizing materials that can be recycled once they have exceeded their normal lifetime.

The Propel Pedal Drive System is a revolutionary propulsion system with remarkable features but is also astonishingly easy to use. 

  • Enjoy total boat control with forward and reverse capabilities.
  • The 1:10 drive ratio converts each pedal crank into ten revolutions of the prop.
  • You will go far with less fatigue as the sleek hydrodynamic design allows efficient propulsion with minimal drag.
  • Your body position mimics a recumbent bike
  • With easy adjustments you can set back and thigh support for a custom fit and even more comfort.
  • The internal drive unit is completely sealed against sand, grit, and mud so it is virtually maintenance free.
  • The drive unit’s housing is marine grade anodized aluminum so it is light, tough and rust proof.
  • Stainless steel components protect the system from salt water damage.
  • The system uses a simple pivot system to be lowered or lifted out of the water easily.
  • It secures easily with a pin once in place and a tough nylon flow plate prevents backwash from entering the boat.
