Kisseynew Prospector 17 (kevlar expedition)
Kisseynew Canoes are made in Air Ronge, Saskatchewan - our own backyard. The exceptional workmanship yields beautiful canoes with details you won't find in most bulk manufactured boats, such as no hardware through the hull, colour-infused resin instead of gel coats (which add weight), epoxy resin which is far superior to cheap resins but costs more and is harder to work with, dual carbon/ash gunwales (again, no hardware), and sophisticated vacuum infusion process that ensures the best strength-to-weight ratio you can get.
If you do longer trips or want a family canoe, this is the boat for you. The Prospector 17 is moderately rockered for maneuverablity in current (2.5" bow and stern) but also tracks quite well. This boat is the durable Expedition layup and comes with skid plates, contoured yoke and carbon loop holes.
Note: this canoe may not be exactly as shown in the photos.
