The Chestnut Prospector has probably been described more often in text than any other canoe, it’s just that popular. Nova Craft's version of this venerable craft is faithful to the original. Since 1984, they have gone out of their way to continue the tradition so future generations of paddlers can enjoy this icon of Canadian history.

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 it is 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’s more, it provides a very dry ride in big waves and whitewater. It is simply the best all round wilderness tripping canoe available.

  • Aramid Lite canoes are the lightest boats made by Nova Craft and are intended for flatwater tripping. Built by infusing Aramid cloth with Nova Craft's high impact resistant vinylester resin, these canoes have great strength to weight characteristics. While they are ideal for wilderness trips involving lots of long portages, it is also wonderful just to have a lightweight canoe to put on and off the car. Twaron fabrics are used to give you the power of Aramid.
