Our Prospecteur 16 has the lines of the well-known Chestnut Prospector. Ideal for canoeists who want the versatility and capacity of the Prospector shape for day tripping and week-long adventures. The rugged T-Formex hull is great for those who enjoy paddling whitewater or who just want a super tough canoe for everyday usage. Stability, easy tracking, and good maneuverability in rapids are what makes this canoe such a classic.

T-Formex is a high tech laminated material consisting of an ABS foam core, ABS sheets, and a protective outer plastic skin. Its resistance to abrasion and heavy impacts make it an excellent material for recreational, whitewater, and expedition canoes. Once heated and molded, T-Formex sheets form a hull that has an unmatched structural memory. So even after being folded around a rock, an Esquif T-Formex canoe will return to its original shape with minimal distortion. Stronger than fibreglass and lighter than polyethylene, T-Formex gives Esquif’s designers a material with superior characteristics.
