Prospector 17′ SP3


Currently unavailable, but coming back very soon!



Nova Craft’s Outfitter models have the same performance characteristics as their famous Prospector models, but are made from a tough 3 layer polyethylene plastic that withstands hard knocks and extensive use. Because the material is nearly indestructible, it makes them attractive to owners who plan to subject them to hard use with little maintenance. While the Outfitter Series are Nova Craft’s heaviest boats, they are also the most affordable canoes we produce. These canoes are ideal for canoe liveries and rental shops since they will give many years of faithful service at an attractive price.

For a family looking for a canoe they can leave knocking around at the cottage, they’ll have a canoe that should last a lifetime. If you want a canoe that will handle a month’s worth of supplies to head out on a wilderness adventure, the Outfitter Series Prospector 17’ is the canoe is for you. You’ll find all the great characteristics that have made this canoe a paddling legend in places like the Yukon and Canadian Arctic. With lots of volume to keep you and your gear dry in whitewater or waves it still tracks well with good hull speed on flatwater. Nova Craft’s durable SP3 material and classic Prospector lines make this the ultimate wilderness extended tripping canoe.

Made in Canada.
