Prospector Style Canoe or White Water Open Canoe

The Venture Prospector 165 is a highly versatile canadian canoe that is ideal for flatwater family trips or solo or tandem white water. The 165 is a foot longer than its smaller twin, the Venture Prospector 155, with a higher carrying capacity and greater directional stability.

Venture have designed, manufactured and constructed the Prospector 165 fully within the United Kingdom. It is made from a 100% Recyclable material called CoreLite, a 3 layer rotomoulded laminate that features a tough outer skin, a foam core mid layer and a second tough inner layer. The advantages of making a canoe from a material such as CoreLite are that it is highly durable, has inherent buoyancy and is also more rigid.

The Whitewater spec of the Prospector comes factory fitted with Laced in Airbags, adjustablw wood/web seats, and is provided with a kneeling twarts that you can fitted to trim the canoe to your needs.

CoreLite moulding technology is also used in some of the P & H Sea Kayaks that include models such as the P & H Scorpio and also the P & H Delphin.  

There are two seating options with the Venture Prospector 165, either PE Plastic seats or Wood/Web Seats. There is also the option of it coming factory fitted with a kneeling thwart. However, Up and Under Watersports do sell a range of Endless River Web Seats and also the Endless River Kneeling Thwart that you would be able to retro fit at a later date if needed.

Up and Under also sell a range of airbags for open canoes, or, alternatively you may wish to use a solid block, as these are more durable and do not deflate if punctured. Both of these can then be securely fitted with the addition of the Endless River Lash Kit.
