Nova Craft Prospector 15 TuffStuff
The Nova Craft Prospector 15 TuffStuff is a classic yet versatile canoe that has all the same performance characteristics as the famous Prospector models. The Tuffstuff canoes are a blend of basalt and Innegra fibres. Basalt fibres are made of melted volcanic basalt rock and Innegra is a fibre consisting mostly of polypropylene. These are woven together into a cloth and mixed with high impact vinylester resin. As a result of TuffStuff, the canoes are amongst the strongest and most versatile on the market today. Tuffstuff canoes are a great choice for paddlers looking for a light weight boat for use on flat water and sections of gentle moving water.
The Prospector 15 by Nova Craft is an all round canoe that is ideal for paddlers of any ability level who are looking for a classically shaped boat. There’s plenty of space for two people for an overnight paddling trip, ideal for familieslooking at touring up and down your local river or canal. The shallow arch hull also makes the Prospector 15 very stable, and this combined with a moderate rocker make it easy to manoeuvre and responsive which makes white water and solo paddling easer.
The Prospector 15 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 also available in SP3 which is heavier but offers extra durability for white water paddling and commercial.
TuffStuff - A cutting edge composite made of basalt and Innegra fibres. Basalt fibre is made of melted basalt rock and Innegra is a fibre consisting mostly of polypropylene. When they are woven together into a cloth and infused with high impact vinylester resin, the result is simply amazing! TuffStuff canoes are a great choice for paddlers looking for a lightweight canoe (11.3kg lighter than SP3) with more than enough strength to handle plenty of thorough use.

These canoes are an excellent choice for an expedition grade canoe for extended trips and occasional lower-grade whitewater use.
