Nova Craft Trapper 12


The Trapper 12 is an exceptional lightweight solo canoe with traditional features such as a cane seat, ash handles and thwart. The Trapper 12 excels in performance when paddling lakes, cannels, calm waters and even slow moving rivers.


The Shallow arch hull on the Trapper 12 really guarantees a stable ride and offers good secondary stability. Alongside the hull shape, the lightweight tuffstuff construction in the Trapper 12 and its slight amount of rocker, makes the canoe speedy through any type of water you decide to venture in.


The Trapper 12 is also very manoeuvrable and responsive, whether you are a new paddler and are trying to learn the fundamental canoeing skills, or an experienced one taking on new challenges and putting you’re already found skills to the test, the Trapper 12 is a slick smooth ride which is always a pleasure to paddle.
