Show Description

This scaled-down Prospector delivers everything that made the original the go-to canoe for tripping and family paddling. Compact and responsive, It retains stability to transition between lakes and rivers. Its maneuverability makes it a fun tandem play boat, with the agility and high volume ends needed to romp through whitewater.

  • Fibreglass hull is made with woven cloth rather than chopped strand mat, for lightness and strength at an affordable price. Nova Craft’s fibreglass lay-ups are among the lightest and most rugged on the market.
  • Interior paint protects the fibreglass against UV degradation.
  • Shoe keel protects the bottom and enhances tracking in flat water.
  • Gunwales are black anodized, aircraft-grade aluminum, with aluminum-reinforced ABS end decks for minimal maintenance.
  • Seats are nylon laced ash, thwarts are ash.
