Enigma Canoes Prospector 16

At sixteen feet in length, the Enigma Prospector follows the very successful Prospector open boat shape, providing a well rounded general purpose canoe. The Prospector hull has proven very successful over the years, due to its versatility on a variety of different water types. With forgiving lines and a moderate rocker, the Prospector is at home canoe camping on slow moving rivers as it is taking on low grade white-water or day trips on lakes or canals.


This mid-sized version is great for heavier/larger paddlers, tandem paddling or canoeists looking for faster canoe, with a high carrying capacity. For those wanting a similar canoe with less carrying capacity but lighter and having more manoeuvrability then please look at our Prospector 15 Page.


Manufactured locally to us here at Manchester Canoes, the Enigma Prospector is truly a UK manufactured and assembled canoe, made from high quality materials to provide paddlers with a robust and durable canoe.
