Prospector Cedar & Canvas Canoe


The 'ideal all round canoe'- Bill Mason

SKU: N/A Category: Tags: , , , ,


Based on the classic Chestnut Canoe Company ‘Prospector’ design, this “workhorse of the North” was designed and built to meet the specific needs of the prospector – good maneuverability through whitewater and wilderness, with capacity to carry substantial loads.

Our 16′ Prospector features a flattened, shallow arch hull with its fullness carried into the bow and stern, good depth amidships to maintain freeboard and deepened ends to keep paddlers and gear dry. The rockered keel-line makes it very maneuverable in whitewater.

This was the favoured canoe of the late Bill Mason, Canada’s premier paddler…”it is amazing that such a large-volume tripping canoe can also be so beautiful to paddle solo in the leaned position – canoe ballet, as I call it. It is the ideal all-round canoe.”

Our Prospector mould is currently being developed and the first boats will be available for demo in the summer of 2018
