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. 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 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.
