Summary

    The Venture Prospector is a traditional style and highly popular canoe that’s ideal for whitewater enthusiasts or wilderness tripping, both solo and tandem.

    A wide beam, classic symmetrical hull and soft tumblehome mean the Venture Prospector inspires confidence, whilst the familiar re-curved bow and high freeboard keep you dry through features and prevent swamping.

    The historical Prospector designs that this model draws inspiration from were true workhorses, so you can load the Venture Prospector 155 up for short weekend tandem trips or extended solo trips or the Venture Prospector 165 up for tandem expeditions or carry a third paddler (with the addition of an optional third seat) and still enjoy the supreme edging performance that gives pleasingly simple turns on both moving and flat water; loading the boat up also improves tracking and reduces windage.

    Factory fitted to your specified location.

    Rope end grabs are the ideal solution for whitewater rescues, fitted above the waterline through the main body of the boat, ensuring sufficient strength to deal with the forces involved.

    Used to secure airbags to the hull of the canoe, and offers high strength attachment points for gear or rescues

    Airbags offer maximum floatation at minimum weight and are essential to reduce the weight and momentum of a boat when attempting a whitewater rescue, preventing damage or loss of your canoe.

    Scratch resistant and highly resilient to the forces exerted on gunwales.

    Low profile end decks and wooden carry handles perfectly compliment the wooden seats of the whitewater spec and create something that looks as good off the water as on it.
