Nova Craft Prospector 16 TuffStuff

 

The 16 footer is the mid-sized model in the Prospector Range that keeps true to the hugely popular prospector shape, providing a popular all-rounder. This mid-sized version is perfect for heavier/larger paddlers, tandem paddling or paddlers looking for faster canoe, with a higher carrying capacity. For those looking for a similar canoe with less carrying capacity but lighter and having more manouverabiity then please look at our Prospector 15 Page.

 

The Nova Craft Prospector 16 TuffStuff is a lightweight version of the original Prospector 16. It's lightweight construction makes it easier to portage and car top and it is even possible to carry Singlehandedly. For those looking for a more robust canoe but still want to retain a lightweight built then the Nova Craft Prospector 16 is available in TuffStuff Expedition which are an ideal choice for an expedition grade canoe during extended wilderness trips.

 

If you require a more robust canoe then the Nova Craft Prospector 16 is available in Nova Craft's tough and durable SP3 material, providing all-round paddlers with the perfect choice for moving water and general recreational use. The tough SP3 canoes are very popular for centres and rental operators due to their durability, superb construction and low maintenance.

 

Manufactured in the home of open boating- Canada, Novacraft have been building canoes for more than 40 years and have a strong reputation for their top quality workmanship and leading designs.

 

The Prospector hull shape has proven so successful over the years due to its versatility on a variety of different water types. With forgiving lines and slight rocker, the Prospector is at home cruising down slow moving rivers as it is tackling small rapids or day trips on local canals or lakes.
