Enigma Prospector 17

The Enigma Prospector 17 is a real workhorse of a canoe. With a long water line, rocker and high carrying capacity, this large open canoe really has the ability to take you wherever you want to go.

Built from hard-weaaring triple-layer polyethele the Enigma Prospector 17 is rigid giving you excellent on the water performance able to take to bumps and knocks of everyday recreational trips or the normal rocky impacts you get running white water. The canoe is highly manoeuvrable whether paddled with just 2 people or fully laden with camping kit and fast enough to give you the ability to take on extended multi day trips with confidence. Inside there are 2 seats fitted as standard but the large amount of space gives you the option of fitting extra seats if you want the whole family to come along, or bags of room for tents and all the kit you need for a full on expediton.

Triply-Layer polyethylene is the best material for a canoe if you are looking for an expedition canoe you can outfit with buoyancy bags or lacing to secure kit to. It is tough and relatively worry free, certain to give many years of happy paddling.

We are also very happy to say that the Enigma Prospector 17 is made right here in the UK.
