Prospector 17′


Canoes are usually made to order.  They are marked as being in stock to facilitate the transaction, which starts the order process.   The current build time is 4 weeks.  That said, occasionally there are in-stock canoes available.  Click HERE to view current inventory.



If you want a canoe that will handle a month’s worth of supplies to head out on a wilderness adventure, this is the canoe for you. In the Prospector 17 you’ll find all the great things that have made this canoe a paddling legend in places like the Yukon and the Canadian Arctic.

With lots of volume to keep you and your gear dry in whitewater, it still tracks well with good hull speed on flatwater. Nova Craft’s durable materials and classic Prospector lines make the P17 the ultimate wilderness extended tripping canoe.
