The Prospector 14 is the quintessential multi-purpose solo boat. If you prefer traditional paddling while kneeling with the boat heeled over, or sitting upright with your feet forward, the Prospector 14 can accommodate any paddling style. A high-volume hull with moderate width but ample tumblehome, it features a high weight capacity for long-distance trippers but offers the performance and feel of a sleek high-efficiency design. Quick to turn and easy to control, you can take your Prospector 14 out for an afternoon of fishing or photography, or you can load it for days or weeks in the backcountry. This layup comes with multi-height seat pods to create two canoe-style setups. The Prospector 14 is designed to give you a multitude of options for your next wilderness adventure.

Expedition Kevlar Laminate

A strong, lightweight laminate for wilderness trippers who demand tremendous strength and durability.

Swift Expedition Kevlar canoes are built with an exterior coating of clear marine gel coat with layers of Kevlar fabric, Basalt cloth derived from volcanic rock, and high modulus polypropylene Innegra fiber. These layers and pieces sandwich a durable foam core and rib system, creating a long-lasting laminate capable of greater elongation and elasticity without failure than any other composite laminate. Fused together with a high impact, flexible Epoxy Vinylester resin system that contains an Ultraviolet Ray (UV) inhibitor.
