Nova Craft PAL

The Nova Craft Pal canoe is well named, for many canoeists the Pal really is the friend they could never part with. The Nova Craft Pal is an extremely good day touring open canoe with excellent primary and secondary stability, tracking and manuevrability that all levels of paddler can appreciate.

The Nova Craft Pal is perfectly suited to day trips or weekend canoe camping around The Broads and rivers of Norfolk. Its minimal rocker and low freeboard make the Nova Craft Pal an easy canoe to handle when crossing open water as there is not a great deal of weathercocking to contend with in windier conditions. The Pal is a fast, nimble and forgiving ride that certainly provides a great deal of pleasure out on the water.

The fact that the Nova Craft Pal is such a great boat to paddle both solo and tandem, is what makes this such a popular model of canoe. It also has plenty of capacity and storage space making the Pal ideal for solo camping trops or a multi-day expedition, the nova Craft Pal really is that good.

As standard the Nova Craft Pal comes fully fitted with 2 wood and bootlace seats, deluxe carrying yoke, thwart, ash carry handles and built-in buoyancy tanks front and rear.

The Nova Craft Pal is also available in Tuff Stuff Expedition to order.
