Enigma Canoes Prospector 16

The Enigma Prospector 16 is a true classic design. The Prospector shape is a classic design and said to be the ultimate all round hull shape for a canoe. The Enigma Prospector 16 certainly lives up to this as being a do-it-all canoe from easy floats down the rivers and estuaries to easy moving water and of course flatwater cruising.

The Enigma Prospector 16 will give you a stable and dry ride whether you are solo paddling or loaded up with all the family. Thanks to the Prospector 16's flared bow and stern it tracks very well making paddling in straight line easy for the novice canoeists, yet remains nimble enough for handling light moving waters, or moderate white water for the more experienced paddler.

The Enigma Prospector 16 is a great all round family canoe perfect for using on the River Dart and River Tamar here in the South West.
