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 Aramid Twaron, vacuum infused with vinylester resin to create a void-free hull. Light enough to make portages almost a pleasure.
  • Seats are ash with nylon lacing.
  • Low maintenance aluminum trim.
  • Note this is a special order item. Please call us for information.
