"Welcome to the BIGGEST - LITTLE canoe and kayak shop in the world"
Nova Craft Canoes

note: Nova Craft uses two versions of Tuff Stuff. We have found either version is "Tuff Stuff".
We have found their lighter Tuff Stuff to be tougher compared to brands for durability while their heavier Tuff Stuff Expedition is noticeably thicker for true wilderness expeditons or those who run rapids frequently. adding Kevlar Skid Plates may be added to any Nova Craft canoe.
Kevlar Skid Plates are available in a Do-it-yourself kit, or you may have them professionally installed by Oak Orchard.
Kevlar Skid Plates add a tremendous amount of abrasion protection and impact resistance to the ends of the canoe.


NOTICE... The company that makes the Royalex material for NOVACRAFT and all other canoe brands has stopped production.
Royalex is great material for canoes which we have sold for many years. The time to purchase is now while we still have a few Royalex canoes available.

This Chestnut Canoe was originally built with the outdoorsman of the early 1900s in mind. Chestnut’s mission was to design a craft that would enable outdoorsmen to paddle small creeks as well as large lakes and be small enough to get through the then nonexistent portage trails at the same time. To meet these unique needs, The Chestnut Canoe Company brought something efficient yet maneuverable into production.
For the modern canoeist, both the primary and secondary stability of The Trapper are reassuring, though its stability does not sacrifice its speed. It has lots of space, for everything from a day of fishing to a week of tripping in the back country. It is a great canoe to use for improving your "J" stroke and can also be used with a double blade paddle. The Trapper combines the enjoyment of a stable fishing platform with the benefits of a small and light craft for portaging into small productive lakes.

                PAL

Nova Craft Pal
The Nova Craft "Pal"
Nova Craft has been faithful to the lines of the original to produce a modern canoe that is indeed a pleasure to paddle.
A perfect blend of stability, tracking and glide makes the PAL a winner for day trips or extended trips with a load.
The PAL is available in Royalex Lite as well as composite hull materials.
Although the Pal is quite capable in rapids it does provide better tracking and glide than the Prospector or the Bob Special. The Pal is a blast solo or tandem, with or without gear!
Another proven classic canoe design from NovaCraft -made with the best modern materials available!
“EVERYBODY NEEDS A PAL”

A fantastic whitewater solo canoe, the Supernova has a shallow arch bottom and moderate rocker for quick responsive action. The flared ends with the 15" depth and straight gunwale line keeps the inside dry in the roughest water. Secondary stability is outstanding. Extreme leaning will not flip it and it has been called a “surfing fool”. Although very responsive in whitewater, its sleek design makes it much faster and easier tracking than most solo boats for long stretches of flatwater especially when loaded. Perfect for solo wilderness trips.

Since Nova Craft introduced this canoe its popularity has been remarkable.  The hull based on the Chestnut Canoe Co.'s famous Bob Special with some improvements to increase speed.  It has a shallow arch bottom, tumblehome and a slight rocker which makes it a joy to paddle solo.  While it is ideally suited as a tandem day tripper, it's capacity makes it large enough to handle a weekend canoe trip.  Faster than most 15' canoes the Bob Special is a great canoe with classic lines. Available in Blue Steel, Kevlar, Kevlar/Spectra, fiberglass or Royalex Lite.

Originally designed by the Chestnut Canoe Co. in 1910, the Prospector has to be the greatest wilderness tripping canoe of all time.  Nova Craft has been faithful to the original design.  The Prospector has good sharp entry lines for speed but the ends flare out quickly to float the bow over waves.  The canoe is stable, but sensitive to leans for carving turns whether paddling tandem or solo.  The moderate rocker in the keel line allows quick pivoting and sideslipping in rapids.  There is no better canoe for lakes, rivers, whitewater rapids, and wilderness trips. Other canoes may be more specialized to do a particular thing well but none can match the Prospector for all types of canoeing! Available in Blue Steel, Kevlar/Spectra, Kevlar, fiberglass, Royalex Lite, Heavy Duty Royalex or SP3 poly.

The increased size and load carrying capacity and classic lines make the Prospector 17 the ultimate extended wilderness tripping canoe. The extra volume lets you run large rapids and stay dry even when loaded with gear. It has a slight rocker for maneuverability in whitewater but tracks well on longer sections of flatwater. When your winter dreams turn into summer adventures on big waters like Lake Superior, or down a river to the Hudson Bay, the Prospector 17 makes a reliable companion.
Available in Blue Steel, Kevlar/Spectra, Royalex Lite or Heavy Duty Royalex.
