Nova Craft Prospector 16 SP3
The strongest 16ft Canoe available for all round canoeing
The Nova Craft Prospector 16 is a perfect tripping canoe for longer flat water river and lake journeys but is also great for general family paddling and even moderate white water.
Nova Craft Prospector 16 SP3
Novacraft’s Prospector 16 is referred to by Canadian paddlers as ‘the workhouse of the Canadian North’ due to the fact that it is one of the most versatile canoes on the market. 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 canoe is suited for those long days paddling on rivers loaded with heavy camping and for multiday expeditions, or simply as a great option for those looking for a stable tandem canoe that all levels of paddler will appreciate. What’s more, it provides a very dry ride in big waves and white water and is simply the best all round wilderness tripping canoe available.
The Prospector 16 has been designed with a shallow arch hull which will ensure an incredibly stable ride and offers a great secondary stability ensuring that you and your equipment stay dry. Much like the smaller Prospector, the 16 still has a moderate rocker which will make this canoe nimble and dynamic enough to take on small rapids and respond efficiently weather paddling solo or tandem.
The Prospector 16 has all the traditional features you would expect to see on a canoe of this quality, including cane 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 Prospector 16 is also available in a lightweight material called TuffStuff – for full details, please click here.
