Quick Links

Nova Craft Canoe began in 1970, when we started producing a limited selection of fiberglass canoes in a small-scale, garage-based operation near London, Ontario, Canada. As the years passed and the reputation of our quality designs and workmanship quickly spread, the company naturally began to grow. As a result, we have steadily responded to customer requests for more model choices and material options. We are proud to say that we are now at a place where our model selection has progressed from a handful of specialized designs to a full catalogue with something to offer every paddler.

Overview

The workhorse of the Canadian north, Nova Craft's Prospector 16 feels most at home loaded with gear on a remote wilderness lake or river. While best suited for river tripping, it remains versatile enough to be a good all-round canoe. With experience, the self-righting aspects of the shallow-arch hull will become apparent and confidence levels will soar. What is more, it provides a very dry ride in big waves and whitewater. It is one of the best all-round tripping canoes available.
