Nova Craft Fox 14


A fourteen foot length for Canadian Canoes is widely considered to be the ideal length for solo open boating. The reduction in weight, ease of handling and added manoeuvrability, allows paddlers to transport the canoe onto a car roof rack and to the water’s edge much easier than longer, unwieldy models. Once on the water, the shorter waterline length makes turning the boat simpler with less effort involved, but still retains the ability to track in a straight line over distance.


The Fox 14 is only available in Novacrafts lightweight material options, which offer strength, rigidity, but also approx. half the weight of most other popular canoes of the same size. The drawback of the Fox 14 is it is only designed for one person, and only has one seat fitted. Perfect for one woman/man and her/his dog plus some overnight kit if needed. For those looking to carry a second passenger/paddler the Novacraft Bob Special is slightly bigger and heavier, but more suitable for tandem paddling.


Perfect for exploring a variety of waterways, from lakes, lochs and reservoirs, all the way through to estuaries and gently moving inland rivers. The Fox 14 could be the perfect escape for individuals wanting to get away from it all and spend time cruising on the vast array of British paddling locations.

Materials Explained- Read what Nova Craft say about their most popular material choices-

  • TuffStuff is a cutting edge, lightweight, composite made of basalt and Innegra fibres. Basalt fibre is made of melted basalt rock and Innegra is a fibre consisting mostly of polypropylene. When they are woven together into a cloth and infused with a high impact vinylester resin system, the result is simply amazing. TuffStuff canoes are a great choice for paddlers looking for a very light canoe for extended flat water trips with more than enough strength to handle lots of abuse through normal use.
  • TuffStuff Expedition is a more robust heavier duty version of the standard TuffStuff construction. These canoes are an excellent choice for an expedition grade canoe during extended wilderness trips and some occasional lower-grade white water use. Stiff for great performance, incredible impact resistance and lightweight all in one canoe. You can see some of the abuse and testing these canoes can take on these YouTube Videos:
