The Nova Craft Bob Special is a very popular open canoe used for both solo and tandem paddling making it perfect for those wanting a versatile canoe for a variety of situations. It combines a variety of features to produce a very well-mannered, easy to paddle day touring canoe and at only a little over 20kgs in standard Tuff Stuff, the Bob Special is very a easy canoe to portage and car top.


Perfect for the variety of rivers around the Norfolk Broads, the Nova Craft Bob Special will be just as at home crossing open water on the larger broads as it will be weaving its way down one of our narrower meandering rivers.

The Bob Special is a great canoe for both beginners and advanced paddlers alike.

Alternatively in the hands of an experienced canoeist, the Nova Craft Bob Special can really dance.
