Description

Show Description

A classic Prospector is probably the best all-around wilderness tripping canoe ever. Where it really shines is when loaded for week-long trips that combine lakes and rivers (mellow or wild). Nova Craft has stayed faithful to the lines of the Chestnut Prospector, the canoe more acclaimed in literature than any other.

  • Made of affordable Royalex Lite. With its amazing resilience, this triple layer ABS plastic is the hull of choice where midstream rocks are unavoidable and portages are few.
  • Seats are ash with nylon lacing.
  • Ash carry handle, thwart, and balanced yolk.
