ESQUIF PROSPECTEUR SPORT
*Shipping not available. Pick up in Hull, Gatineau (we can also meet you in Ottawa).
The Prospecteur Sport is a classic design. The Esquif Prospecteur Sport is based on the long-used canoe by the First Nations People using today’s materials and building technologies. Its arched bottom meets the freeboard with a soft, rounded chine giving the canoe exceptional glide and a reassuring feel.
The balance and harmony of this traditional design guarantee that the Prospecteur Sport will be as agile on the river as on a lake. Discover all the Prospecteur’s subtleties in a canoe designed for the enjoyment of all paddlers.

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.
