Description

The new Fox 14 is an ideal choice for solo paddlers looking for independent adventures on flatwater lakes and lazy rivers.  Its shorter length and minimal rocker give this canoe a good balance of tracking and turning characteristics.  At 14’, the Fox is the perfect size for a relaxing evening paddle around the lake but still large enough to fit enough gear for a week-long trip into the backcountry. The narrow width makes this a faster, efficient design helping you cover distance with ease and its shallower depth catches less wind.  This narrower design also accommodates soloists who prefer cruising around using a kayak paddle.  Slight tumblehome on the sides helps for easier paddle strokes and the shallow arch bottom gives the paddler a stable feel but still allows for leaning the boat over to paddle Canadian-style.  Of course the Fox’s small size and light weight make it easy to get on and off the car by yourself. The Fox 14 will get solo paddlers into the tranquility of nature with a beautiful balance of ease and performance.

More Info

Fiberglass is an affordable composite material with a proven track record of durability. Nova Craft's fiberglass hulls are among the lightest and most rugged on the market today. They use woven fiberglass cloth to make a truly superior hull. Fiberglass canoes are great for recreational and cottage use and are a good choice for budget-minded individuals.

(Composite canoe construction involves combining different woven materials with resin in a mold. The benefits of composites are they result in lighter canoes with excellent durability. They also offer superior glide and much better long-term repairability. Nova Craft's composite materials include fiberglass, TuffStuff, TuffStuff Expedition, Aramid Lite and Blue Steel).
