"If I could have only one canoe, it would be the original 16-foot Prospector." So wrote Master Paddler Bill Mason in his book, The Song of the Paddle.

We've returned to the classic Prospector design and specifications. The result is a responsive canoe meant for week-plus adventures or just "playing about in boats." It spins on a dime, tracks better the more its loaded, and brings pure joy to the experienced paddler, and those who want a canoe that will keep up with their improving skills!

The Prospector is a proud addition to the Merrimack line, and one of the best all-around canoes we build.


The best canoe you can own is one that's made exactly to your tastes. Numerous upgrades are available to tailor your canoe to your personal preferences, from customizable liveries, trim options, floor prints, and even wood burned deck plates.
