Nova Craft Lure 15'7

The Lure 15'7 from Nova Craft offers a quality fibreglass canoe with a squared off transom stern allowing the canoe to be used with a small motor to extend your range on the water. The stern is reinforced with an aluminium transom allowing you to clamp on a small outboard motor - it is recommended to use an electric outboard motor with this model for low speed cruising. The triple keeled design provides good stability whilst under motor and when stationary. This makes the Lure 15'7 an excellent craft for creeping along quiet estuary river creeks and rivers when wildlife spotting, or heading out onto a lake or reserviour for a spot of fishing.

Equipped with two ash seats with bootlace webbing, and with a maximum carrying capacity of 1000lb, you have plenty of ability to take a passenger and some camping or fishing gear, or perhaps a day on the water with the kids. Finished with aircraft grade anodised aluminium gunwales and tough ABS deck plates.

An affordable composite material with a proven track record of durability. Nova Crafts fiberglass hulls are among the lightest and most rugged on the market today, using woven fiberglass cloth to make a truly superior hull. Canoes constructed from fibreglass are great for recreational use and are a good choice for those wanting a lightweight canoe but are on a budget.


A cutting edge proprietary composite made of basalt and Innegra fibers. Basalt fibre is made of melted basalt rock and Innegra is a fibre consisting mostly of polypropylene. When they are woven together into a cloth and infused with our high impact vinylester resin system, the result is simply amazing! TuffStuff canoes are a great choice for paddlers looking for a light canoe for extended flatwater tripping with more than enough strength to handle regular paddling abuse.

TuffStuff Expedition (TSE)

A more robust, heavier duty version of our standard TuffStuff construction. These canoes are an excellent choice for an expedition grade canoe for extended wilderness trips and some whitewater use. Stiff for great performance, incredible impact resistance and lightweight all in one canoe.

Aramid Lite

The lightest canoes that Nova Craft make and are intended only for flatwater paddling. Built by infusing Twaron fabric Aramid cloth with high impact resistant vinylester resin to create a canoe that has great strength to weight characteristics. Aramid canoes are a top choice for those only paddling flatwaters who want the very lightest canoe for easy portaging and car topping.

Blue Steel

A hybrid material of aramid and carbon fibre with a clear gel coat finish to reveal the truly stunning blue/black composite cloth beneath. Blue Steel canoes are light like Aramid Lite boats but are significantly stronger. Not only is the look of carbon fiber cloth very appealing but the carbon fibers add stiffness to the hull to increase paddling efficiency. Adding an inner layer of Innegra and infusing these hulls with high impact resistant vinylester resin makes a very rugged canoe. Blue Steel canoes are most at home in flatwater scenarios but have been proven very reliable on long river expeditions as well.

All Constructions Have A Gelcoat Finish

All Nova Craft composite canoes feature a gelcoat finish. Gelcoat is a resin that provides a smooth hard finish to a canoe. It protects the underlying composite cloth and acts as an abrasion layer. This can either be coloured (e.g, Green, Oxblood, Sand, Olive) to 'paint' the canoe a specific colour, or in some cases clear gelcoat is used to reveal the composite cloth beneath. Gel coats are suspectible to scratching, chipping and cracking if they impact a hard surface (rocks, slipways, pebbles etc). Luckily, gel coat is easily repairable, and coloured-matched or clear gel coat repair kits are available to remedy any scratches, chips or gelcoat cracks you may pick up during the use of your composite canoe. Sometimes gelcoat damage can look drastic if you have taken a particularly hard impact, but often any damage is limited to the gel coat rather than the much tougher composite hull of the canoe itself. Take a look at the Nova Craft Guide to Gelcoat Repairs for more info.
