Nova Craft Cronje

The Nova Craft Cronje is an open canoe that has been primarily designed to take on long distance, flat water trips and cover those distances with minimum effort. The Nova Craft Cronje delivers a flat, stable and comfortable ride whether paddled fully loaded or just a single person paddling solo.

Manufactured in Tuff Stuff and re-inforced Tuff Stuff Expedition, the Nova Craft Cronje has the very best combination of durability and lightweight materials. Weighing in at a little under 25kgs in standard Tuff Stuff, the Cronje is a canoe that can very easily be car-topped by one person. In a world where so many of us paddle the Prospector-style canoe but perhaps suffer a little in windier conditions, the Nova Craft Cronje with its' reduced freeboard and reduced rocker profile is a much easier canoe to handle if it starts to blow a little. You could even view the Cronje as almost the bigger brother of the extremely popular Pal with many of the same features and specs but that bit extra room.

The Nova Craft Cronje comes complete with 2 comfortable ash bootlace seats and sculpured deluxe yoke for easy portaging and built-in buoyancy tanks front and rear.
