Truly the poor man's yacht, the origin of the Rob Roy goes back to England and the mid 1800s. John MacGregor, after seeing our Indigenous birch bark canoes and the Inuit kayak, designed his idea of an efficient cruising canoe, calling it the Rob Roy. Typical of this type of solo canoe were: length 12' to 15', propelled with a double blade paddle from a sitting position and often rigged for sail. Early American canoe builders like J. Henry Rushton and W.P. Stephens were influenced by this style. Until the early 1900's, American recreational canoeing was dominated by the double paddle canoe.

This hull design has been built in many versions, from a simple light weight fast cruising canoe, to a full decked version of book-matched walnut veneer, with sliding seat, foot rest, floorboards and hand rubbed varnish. There are many possibilities of how this canoe may be trimmed and fit out.
