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

We have sold, and paddled Nova Craft canoes for several decades.
Thru this experience we have found that any canoe they build is well made and versatile.


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 NovaCraft or Oak Orchard.
Kevlar Skid Plates add a tremendous amount of abrasion protection and impact resistance to the ends of the canoe.

This Chestnut Canoe was originally built with the outdoorsman of the early 1900s in mind. The 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 secret lakes and ponds.

Our new Fox 14 is an ideal choice for solo paddlers looking for independent adventures on flatwater lakes, lazy rivers and lots of fun in mild rapids. Its shorter length and minimal rocker give this canoe a good balance of tracking and turning characteristics. At 14’ the Fox is the perfect size for a relaxing evening paddle around the lake but still large enough to fit enough gear for a week-long trip into the backcountry. The narrow width makes this a faster, efficient design helping you cover distance with ease and its shallower depth catches less wind. This design accommodates soloists who prefer cruising around using a traditional single blade OR a double bladed paddle. Slight tumblehome on the sides helps for easier paddle strokes and the shallow arch bottom gives the paddler a stable feel but still allows for leaning the boat over to paddle Canadian-style. Of course the Fox’s small size and light weight make it easy to get on and off the car by yourself. The Fox 14 will get solo paddlers into the tranquility of nature with a beautiful balance of ease and performance.

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 fiberglass, Tuff Stuff or Tuff Stuff Expedition.

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 side slipping 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 fiberglass, Tuff Stuff, Tuff Stuff Expedition, 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 fiberglass, Tuff Stuff, Tuff Stuff Expedition, or SP3 poly.
