Nova Craft Prospector 16 TuffStuff

An ideal canoe for family day trips or weekend camping trips. The Nova Craft Prospector 16 is at home loaded with kit no matter where it is, on white water, flat rivers, coastal or lakes. The self righting aspects of the shallow hull mean this boat is great to learn, gain experience and build confidence. The symmetrical design front to back makes this boat good as a solo or tandem boat and high sides throughout will help to give a drier ride, deflecting the water when cutting through waves and rapids. At 16 foot long this canoe has enough space for 2 or 3 people and some kit, But if you’re looking for more space try its bigger brother the Nova Craft Prospector 17. Or if you’re looking for a shorter more nimble boat for similar trips try the Nova Craft Prospector 15  

 

TuffStuff.

TuffStuff is a new composite material made of basalt and Innegra fibers. When they are woven together into a cloth and infused with our high impact vinylester resin system, the result is simply amazing! TuffStuff canoes are a great choice for paddlers looking for a light canoe thats tough enough to last - the perfect replacement for Royalex.


SP3.

SP3 is a very strong and durable roto-moulded triple layer polyethylene plastic construction. SP3 is perfect for everyone from occaisonal paddlers to busy hire centres and clubs. Click Here for more details.
