Nova Craft Canoe

Prospector 18' TuffStuff Expedition

Prospector 18' TuffStuff Expedition
A canoe with a massive cargo capacity
Nova Craft Canoe - Prospector 18' TuffStuff Expedition
Item: NOV384-24422D
Price: $3,189.00
Availability: More Information


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.


TuffStuff Expedition (TSE) 

A more robust, heavier duty version of Nova Craft's standard TuffStuff construction. These canoes are an excellent choice for an expedition grade canoe for extended wilderness trips and some whitewater use. Stiff for great performance, incredible impact resistance and lightweight all in one canoe. You can see some of the abuse these canoes can take on Nova Craft's YouTube channel here.
