Looking for a Prospector canoe, but don't want to wait? Look no further. Built with the Kevlar and Carbon Fiber layup, this Prospector features our sharp-yet-subtle Pickwick design scheme along with an eye-catching Compass floor print.

Big brother to the Baboosic, the 16’ Prospector has maneuverability and carrying capacity in spades. Lots of rocker means this canoe can turn on a dime in spite of its length, and the deep hull means it can be loaded extremely heavily and the tracking only improves as the canoe is more heavily laden. The Prospector is a fantastic canoe for tandem trips with the supplies needed for even extended journeys, and enough maneuverability to handle the currents on streams and rivers. In many ways this is the quintessential choice for long backcountry trips in the Boundary Waters of Northern Minnesota.
Weighing under 60 pounds, the Prospector is straightforward to load and unload for one or two people. Strong, lightweight fiberglass or impact-resistant Kevlar and Carbon Fiber are place together under a striking gel coat to create a perfect blend of weight, rigidity, and durability, and then finished off with stunning Cherry ribs to add an additional helping of both beauty and strength. Hardwood ash and cherry appointments from the gunnels to the yoke round out the canoe, lending it a timeless look that will hold up for years to come.
