Industry Updates 

As the Chicago Boat Show is cancelled this year, we'll be offering Show Prices on in-stock and incoming boats through February 14. Please contact us for a quote on a specific model of Highfield.

Outboard engines are already in tight supply, and we expect that to continue through the 2021 summer season, so shopping now is to your advantage.

Most of our brands have informed their dealers that they are at production capacity, and no longer accepting orders for spring and summer, 2021. 

The good news is that we already have 500+ canoes and kayaks on order for winter and spring delivery to us, and if you start shopping now, you should be able to get exactly the boat you want for next season.

Please contact us to find out what models in those lines are available to purchase and their ETA to the store, and to put down deposits if you want to hold boats/paddles on order.

 On behalf of everyone at Offshore / Paddling Warehouse, our best wishes for the safety of you and yours, and we look forward to seeing you in our Lake Bluff store when conditions allow.
