Nova Craft Canoe Prospector 14 Solo


New for 2024! Our most multipurpose solo canoe model yet: a scaled down version of our popular Prospector design best suited for independent backcountry adventure.

The Prospector 14′ Solo features a symmetrical hull with moderate rocker for responsive performance. More efficient on flatwater than its tandem counterparts, while maintaining the capacity you expect from a Prospector.

Our wooden bench seat can be ordered hung flat or angled depending on your preference (shown angled in product photos). For backcountry tripping we recommend adding the removeable yoke option for ease of use on the portage trail (shown with and without yoke in product photos).
