Nova Craft Prospector 15 Tuff Stuff


The Nova Craft Prospector 15 in Tuff Stuff is a superb open canoe for anyone looking for a combination of solo and tandem paddling in a canoe that's incredibly easy to pick up, car top and portage off the water. The Nova Craft Prospector 15 Tuff Stuff is nimble and quick to respond, easy to paddle and control with superb build quality and attention to detail. Constructed from Nova Craft's revolutionary lightweight Tuff Stuff material, the Prospector 15 Tuff Stuff is now not only extremely light at just over 20 kgs, but also still amazingly resiliant - just look at some of the videos Nova Craft have produced and see the punishment this material can take.


The Nova Craft Prospector 15 is also available in Tuff Stuff Expedition. While standard Tuff Stuff is perfect for those wanting a lightweight canoe, if you are intending to use the canoe more on whitewater, then the Tuff Stuff Expedition is the model for you. In the Expedition grade material there is more reinforcement and extra layering within the hull. This makes the Tuff Stuff Expedition version more able to cope with the punishment and ideal for whitewater.


Comfort is never an issue in a Nova Ctaft canoe, and the Prospector 15 Tuff Stuff is certainly no exception. There are 2 ash and bootlace seats as standard giving maximum comfort for even extended paddling trips. A cetral deluxe carrying yoke makes portages easy and there are even built-in buoyancy tanks front and aft so if you do capsize your Prospector 15 Tuff Stuff down some white water, you don't have to worry about adding extra pop.


Option extras for the Nova Craft Prospector 15 Tuff Stuff are available such as factory fitted kneeling thwart, skid plates, wooden gunwales and 2 tone colour schemes.


If you are looking for a colour not listed, or options such as wooden gunwales, please email or call us on 01603 747139 and we will be happy to help.
