My husband and I have a 12'(?) Dolphin Princess canoe. I can't seem to find any info about the Dolphin Canoe Co other than it was based in Wabasha MN from the 60's to the 80's. We'd like to sell the canoe as we find we don't use it now that we have kayaks, but I have no idea of their value since I can't find any info about them. Does anyone here have a Dolphin or know anything about them? Thanks for your help.

Dolphin Canoe info|

I have a couple of old Dolphins lying in my barn. Mine are about 16-17 ft long. They are made of two half shelf of heavy fiberglass. The two shells are clamped together with an aluminum quill. Mine have a tall and recurved bow and stern. If your canoe is similar to mine her is my opinion on them. They are very heavy, very stable (all primary stability) and out of date. As far as value, I believe you would be lucky to get more than a $150 for it. I will plant flower in one of mine, it is the best use I can find for it (the bottom is cracked and was patch many time).

If you have not yet gotten rid of the old canoes, and would like to still get rid of them I would like to see about buying them. I like the stability for my small children.

Are you still looking for a Dolphin canoe? I have one purchased in the early 70's, fiberglass, Brave, 18 ft. Over 3 ft wide in the middle, so I would think it's pretty stable. Has not been used in over 20 years, but I think it's still in good condition.
