The Canoe Island sloop was custom designed for Canoe Island Lodge on Lake George in 1989 to replace their aging fleet of legendary Sound Inter Clubs.  The owner wanted a faster, safer, more comfortable boat, and John Scarano delivered that and more (to read more about the birth of the Canoe Island sloop read the owner's letter to John Scarano).  The Canoe Island sloop is a modern classic.  Originally two boats were ordered, but because of their success and popularity with the resort's customers a third boat was commissioned by Canoe Island Lodge in 1993.
