Scott Canoes Prospector 16 Canoe Review

Scott Canoes Prospector 16 was reintroduced to the paddling community by Abitibi & Co in 2015, and we are proud to welcome it back to our shop! The popular design was retained, while implementing a more robust build.

Scott's Prospect 16 has a semi-rounded bottom with slightly rockered bow and stern. The classic symmetrical shape totes versatility giving the canoe a good balance of maneuverability and efficiency, while the lengthened entry lines improve speed and stability.

Combine the length with the wide 36" beam, and you've got a more user-friendly and better tracking boat than the smaller Prospector 15; however, the larger Prospector 17 is more efficient with a higher load capacity.

The Prospector 16 is easily the most versatile canoe in Scott's Prospector family making it perfect for day trips and longer adventures. Great for flat-water lakes but still playful enough to handle slow, moving water or adverse conditions with ease, this canoe does it all!

The capacity Scott Canoes Prospector 16 offers plenty of room for camping gear and the family, while the user-friendliness makes it a winner with new paddlers. What's more, the traditional design creates a familiar feel that experienced users will love.

"Looking for a tough, multi-purpose, quality Canadian-made canoe that does everything well EXCEPT empty your wallet, you just found it!"



Scott's fiberglass construction utilizes a tried-and-tested vacuum bagging process with dense cloth to offer an extremely durable, long-lasting canoe - though it is a tad heavier than the Kevlar option, the fiberglass layup is by far the strongest.

  • Fiberglass - 62 lbs / 28.1 kg - $1799.00

Standard Kevlar

To cut the weight while maintaining impact resistance, Scott's Kevlar layup utilizes the economical vacuum bagging construction method and combines it with an advanced fabric to improve the strength-to-weight ratio.
