This is a new canoe, with some slight oil canning or shape deformation to the hull caused by storage.


The Nova Craft Prospector 17 SP3 is a canoe capable of handling almost any water environment the UK has to offer. Versatile to be perfectly suited for calm coastal conditions, all the way through to classic white water. The Prospector 17 will be a comforting companion on a wide range of adventures.

The Prospector 17 ticks the box if you are looking for a canoe designed to take the family, the dog and enough supplies for multiple days on the water.

The Nova Craft Prospector 17 is the longest plastic boat from Nova Craft and is really well suited for families looking to get out on the water, although in the right hands with some practice, it can be paddled solo with excellent results. Supplied with two wood-webbed seats, deep yoke, thwart (for extra strength) and carry handles at either end the Prospector is comfortable to carry between two, but we would recommend the use of a canoe trolley if you are regularly carrying it on your own or for any distance as it is not a lightweight canoe.
