Nova Craft Prospector 17 SP3

Whether you are looking for a canoe for all the family, or a large centre style boat to load up with enthuastic kids and clients, then look no further than the Nova Craft Prospector 17.

 

This canoe has enough space for a month’s worth of supplies and the family. It also makes a great centre canoe to load up with enthusiatic kids (about 6!) and clients. The tough roto-moulded SP3 construction means it will cope with the usual abuse of slip ways etc. Paddle the P17 and you will know why the this canoe is a legend in areas like the Canadian arctic and Yukon. With good flat water speed and high sides like the entire Prospector range will give you a drier ride on coastal waters and white water rapids alike.

 

If your looking for the ultimnate wilderness expedition canoe then the Prospector 17 could be the one for you!

 

If you think the P17 is too big then take a look at its smaller brothers, The Nova Craft Prospector 16 and Nova Craft Prospector 15.

Delivery

We offer a delivery service for the Nova Craft Prospector 17 SP3 throughout the UK & Ireland to home and work addresses.

 

Delivery times are estimates based on years of experience; we do not offer a guaranteed timed delivery service. Our overnight service works well for the core more densely populated areas of the UK for Clothing and Equipment orders. However more remote less densely populated areas will not be covered by a next day service.

 

Delivery of canoes and kayaks is classed as “ugly freight” because mechanical handling and automatic parcel processing cannot be used; therefore a delivery time of 3-5 working days is more realistic. For remote location that delivery time will be dependent on the local courier’s ability to onward ship the goods. Not all areas of the UK are serviced by vehicles that can handle canoes and kayaks. Online orders can be tracked online using the courier’s website – tracking details will be provided. We make every effort to deliver goods within the estimated time scales
