Nova Craft Bob Special 15 TuffStuff

The Nova Craft Bob Special is an improved version Chestnut Canoe Company original, a lightweight canoe well suited to solo tripping and casual tandem paddling. Constructed from TuffStuff composite, the hull is durable and will take the abuse of long weekends on the water.

 

The optimized hull shape, and width of the canoe, makes the Bob Special a stable but relatively fast boat, ideal for recreational touring and quiet stalking up river creeks and on lakes. The Bob Special is a fantastic tandem day tripper, with enough space to load up for a weekend on the water exploring. When a competent paddler gives it a go the boat comes into its own and shines.

 

The Bob Special is a canoe that has a unique set of features which make it an enjoyable boat for new and experienced paddlers alike.
