Hornbeck Boats was founded by Peter Hornbeck in 1971. The company is known for producing light-weight canoes of Kevlar and carbon fiber that enable paddlers to make carries to remote bodies of water. The light weight also means they are easy to load onto vehicles, making them good choices for solo paddlers and individuals with physical limitations.
Hornbeck was initially inspired by the small, light, wooden canoes built by 19th century builder J. Henry Rushton, Canton, NY.
Hornbeck died in December 2020; the company is now run by his son-in-law Josh Trombley. [Read more…] about A Hornbeck Boat Exhibit Opens in Canton
