Swift Canoes Prospector 15
Swift Canoes make some of the lightest open canoes on the market and this Prospector 15 is one of their biggest sellers. The well loved Prospector shaped canoe is found in most manufacturers ranges however Swift have given their Prospector 15 some additional detailing to make it handle even better on the water. Cleaner lines gives them the ability to bring the tumblehome right to the top of the canoes freeboard, this allows the paddlers to keep a tighter paddle stroke elevating the feeling of having to reach over the side of the canoe to get to the water. A more rounded hull in the lower chine area enables a feeling of more stability when the canoe is under load and helps any choppy water to dissipate under the hull. Swift Canoes also smoothed the sides of the bow and stern of the canoe to give a better glide and smoother feel when cutting through the water.
The Prospector 15 is constructed of Swifts Kevlar Fusion material which offers the best strength to weight ratio and makes these canoes ultra lightweight. A urethane resin system which has been designed for top durability as well as longevity, with a thin exterior gel coat layer makes up the basis of Kevlar Fusion. An exterior layer of polyester with S-Glass and kevlar cloth layering sandwiching the foam core ribbed system finishes off the Kelvar Fusions laminate. This laminate fused with high impact, flexible urethane acrylate resin system, which is then injected during a high pressure infusion process produces the optimal dispersion and laminate consistency.
UK spec'd Swift Canoes come with a Carbon Kevlar trim as standard. This not only looks great when coupled with the Cherry wood contoured seats, yoke and carry handles but also keeps the weight ultra light. Swift bond the trim and hull by using their unique process to infuse the hull and gunwales as one part, which makes for a super lightweight maintenance free open canoe.
