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 our selection has progressed from a handful of specialized designs to a full catalogue with something to offer every paddler, with a focus on venerated classic Canadian designs from the Chestnut Canoe Company.

Overview

If you want a canoe that will handle a month's worth of supplies to head out on a wilderness adventure, this canoe is for you. In the Prospector 17 you'll find all the great characteristics that have made this canoe a paddling legend in places like the Yukon and Canadian Arctic. With lots of volume to keep you and your gear dry in whitewater and waves, it still tracks well with good hull speed on flatwater.
