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

The cargo capacity of the Prospector 18 model can only be described as massive. The Prospector lines produce a canoe that feels deceptively light and responsive, but there's tons of space to pack in a load of supplies for any expedition with room left over to toss in the kitchen sink. Straighter tracking than our shorter Prospectors. It's perfect for the wilderness traveler intent on expedition style adventures or a large family wanting to travel in one canoe.
