Thanks for all you replies! it’s very helpful.
I guess the bottom line is doable, but not recommended...
I might need to look for other options, which is a shame as we were getting excited at the idea of getting a Jimny!

I think if you are firm on the Jimny the best option as mentioned above is going to be a trailer which for a couple of canoes is not going to have to be massively heavy so would be well within the ability of a Jimny to pull even up some of the more remote areas of NZ. But trailers are not for everyone and are not without compromise. Good luck with your decision.

If you're carrying 2 kayaks then presumably there's 2 of you which helps considerably when putting them on the roof. If they're narrow kayaks then there will be room. If you're considering a gen4 jimny then you'll only be limited to the carrying capacity of your chosen roofbars (my thule bars are rated for 100kg max). If a gen3, then the 30kg roof laod limit may be an issue.
My 41kg fishing kayak is wide and is best carried flat to keep side wind effects to a minimum. Otherwise, its fine on my gen4.
