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 has the stability needed 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 straight grained ash, fastened with stainless steel screws.
  • Seats and thwarts are ash.
  • Custom cut decks and contoured carrying handles.
  • Fittings have a hand-rubbed oil finish.
