Heads up!
This boat is not in stock. The boats we sell have so many potential configurations that in many cases it is not feasible for us to hold stock of a boat. Should you be interested in this boat, please book a (free - no obligation) consultation with us on our customisation page where we will discuss the options available to you. Should you wish to proceed with purchase, we will place your boat order directly with the boat manufacturer (overseas) and then your boat will be made specifically to your needs and shipped to Australia.

This is a pre order item. We will ship it when it comes in stock.

The original "Workhorse of the North". There's a good reason why this canoe shape is the most enduring of all canoe hulls and has been our best-seller across all of Australia. Classed as a "downriver" canoe, this canoe really is at-home in all types of water. It can be paddled solo or tandem and offers unlimited room to grow your paddling ability.

Quality versatility

This boat turns beautifully but will track straight if you want it to. It’s surprisingly fast (even when loaded). Stability improves with loading, which is fine as we bought it for loaded touring. The lightweight build (Innegra weave) suits us as we’re not getting any younger. A lovely canoe.

Freedom on the water again

Many thanks to Paddle and Portage for making the Wenonah Prospector 16 available. The canoe we have been using for the last 20 years is a custom made Canoe built to use on the Tully River. It is great on white water but is made from fibreglass weighing more than 60 kegs - a bit too heavy for me to lift nowadays. What a breeze to place the Wenonah onto my 4x4 and the first couple of paddles on local lakes gave us the feeling of freedom on the water once again. Oh, what a feeling!!
