The Canadian Canoe Company just north of Toronto spearheaded this project in 1997. They love traditional boats but wanted a midsize hull that had a little more capacity than the 15 footers.
This new design quite obviously borrows some of its heritage from the Prospector series but is graced with a little more tumblehome in the hull sides and less curvature in the sheer. We think it is even better looking that the boats you remember as a kid.
Don’t let the cottage reference fool you, this boat is happy playing near the beach, on portages or off on a two week canoe trip. It planks up beautifully and will make you look like a professional.
