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 volume ends to romp through whitewater. The hull is a basalt and polypropylene composite. This hydrophobic material is lighter and stiffer than plastic, so it's responsive, efficient, and glides better. It’s also incredibly tough. Bounce it off rocks, and it retains its original shape without breaking.

  • Hull is Tuff Stuff, a composite of melted basalt rock and Innegra polypropylene fibre.
  • Interior is painted sand colour.
  • Gunwales are black anodized, aircraft-grade aluminum, with aluminum-reinforced ABS end decks for minimal maintenance.
  • Seats are nylon laced ash, thwarts are ash.
