The Nova Craft Fox 14' is an ideal choice for those looking for a manageable solo canoe, widely regarded as the optimum length for a solo canoe the Fox 14' is unrestricted in weight, easy to manoeuvre both on and off the water by one person, however without compromising on speed or tracking. Perfect for exploring calm waters, the Fox 14' is a joy to paddle.
With a minimal rocker, the short waterline eases turning with little effort, however the shallow arched hull retains straight line performance and ensures tracking over distance is as easy as possible. A narrow beam and tumblehome sides makes the Fox a sleek, nimble canoe which is a fast and efficient boat, the low freeboard reduces wind catchment and makes for an excellent solo canoe for paddling in all weather conditions.
An independent canoe for solo adventures, the Fox 14 is set up as a one man and his dog boat, with sufficient room for overnight trips or carrying a decent load on a touring expedition. If you are after the option of carrying a second passenger then the Nova Craft Bob Special 15' or Pal 16’ are marginally longer canoes better suited for tandem paddling.
Outfitted with a single seat, two stiffening thwarts, ash handles at either end and integrated buoyancy chambers at bow and stern the Fox is impossible to sink. The seat positioning just aft of the narrow centre is comfortable for paddling from either seated or the traditional kneeling position, but can also accommodate paddlers who prefer to use a kayak paddle.
Made from Nova Craft's TuffStuff composite materials the Fox is light and durable. Weighing in under 20kgs carrying it around is remarkably easy, while the vinylester resin gives outstanding impact resistance.
From the home of canoeing, the Fox 14' has amble pedigree and is an excellent choice for paddlers looking for an escape to cruise along the vast array of British waterways.
