Welcome to Zapf Legacy Canoes
We have chosen our name after much thought on our business. In the mid 1960's when I was around four years old, my father started building wood-strip canoes. I grew up with our family building these beautiful redwood and cedar canoes. Today my wife and I carry on this family tradition. My father passed onto us something we take great pride in. The third generation, our daughters, have grown up as I did learning this craft. And yes, Grandpa was there to help pass on this legacy of canoe building... a Zapf Legacy.
