The Prospecteur is a classic design. The Esquif Prospecteur 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 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-fromex is the sucessor of Royalex, a material famous for its durability, abrasion resistance, lightness and relatively low cost. When production of Royalex stopped a few years ago, the paddling community was left with a void for affordable canoes that could still take a beating. Currently exclusive to Esquif Canoes, T-formex can handle anything the wilderness can dish out. From rapids to beaver dams it will take it all and keep on going, all while still being light enough to portage back to the car.
