Nova Craft Prospector 15 SP3
The ultimate 15ft all rounder canoe without the extra volume, with its shallow curved hull the Nova Craft Prospector 15 gives great initial stability for both the new and experienced paddler. The slight rocker gives the boat great agility meaning it’s a great all rounder, great for taking you, a friend and your picnic lunch or your pet out for the day around the coast or on flat water rivers, but it’s also at home running through white water rapids.
With nice high sides from front to back will deflect water giving a drier ride than other canoes even on bigger waves and rapids. With a symmetrical design front to back this boat is easy to paddle as both solo or as a tandem crew.
The Prospector 15 SP3 has plenty of room for 2 paddlers and some kit for an overnight camp etc, although if you wanted a boat so you can go on longer trips we would recommend the Nova Craft Prospector 16 or 17.
The Nova Craft Prospector 15 is available in several different materials/constructions.
