Nova Craft Prospector 17 Aramid Lite/Ash Canoe

See available Canoes


Show Description

A canoe that cries out to be taken down great Yukon or arctic rivers, laden with a month’s worth of supplies. Or out on your local lake, carrying you, your partner, the kids and dog, plus everything needed for a long weekend. The Prospector’s substantial volume keeps you and your gear dry running lumpy water. It performs well on non-technical rivers, yet still tracks well on lakes. The gunwales are now mounted from beneath, making for a clean look that also keeps the screw heads out of the elements.

  • Made of Aramid Lite, which offers greater structural strength at less weight than traditional Aramid. Light enough to make portages almost a pleasure.
  • Equipped with wood trim, ash seats with nylon lacing, ash handles, thwarts and custom-cut end plates.
