Nova Craft Prospector 15 SP3


The Prospector 15 SP3 is a classic yet versatile canoe that has all the same performance characteristics as the famous Prospector models. These are made from a tough 3 layer polyethylene plastic that withstands hard knocks and extensive use, because of the material it’s nearly indestructible and makes them attractive to owners who plan to subject them to hard use with little maintenance.   


This all round affordable canoe is the ideal canoe for a paddler of any ability level who is looking for a classically shaped boat. There’s plenty of space for two people, ideal for overnight paddling trips and ideal for families touring up and down your Local River or canal.  The shallow arch hull also makes the Prospector very stable, and this combined with a moderate rocker make it easy to manoeuvre and responsive which makes white water and solo paddling easer.


This has the traditional features you would expect to see on a canoe of this quality, including wood/ web seats, ash carry handles and an expertly designed yoke that has been shaped to fit your shoulders perfectly allowing for maximum comfort for long portages.


The Nova Craft Prospector 15 is currently available in SP3 plastic construction, other materials are available to order.



  • Reinforced vinyl gunwales with rotomoulded end deck plates as standard trim.
  • Ash framed seats with webbing or plastic seats.
  • Ash carry handles at bow and stern.
  • Deluxe sculpted ash centre yoke, shaped to spread the weight across your shoulders evenly.
  • Shallow arch shaped hull gives initial stability whilst a moderate rocker allows good manoeuvrability.
