Prospector 18′


Canoes are usually made to order.  They are marked as being in stock to facilitate the transaction, which starts the order process.  Build times during COVID are longer than normal. The current build time is 3 months. That said, occasionally there are in-stock canoes available.  Click HERE to view current inventory.



The cargo capacity of the Prospector 18 model can only be described as massive. The Prospector lines produce a canoe that feels deceptively light and responsive, but there’s tons of space to pack in a load of supplies for any expedition with room left over to toss in the kitchen sink.

The P18 is a big boat with straighter tracking than our shorter Prospectors. It’s perfect for the wilderness traveler intent on expedition style adventures or a large family wanting to travel in one canoe.
