Scott Canoes Prospector 17 Review
Scott Canoes Prospector 17 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 successfully reducing weights up to 10% and implementing a more robust build.
Scott Canoes Prospect 17 has a semi-rounded bottom with slightly less rocker bow and stern. The accentuated waterline creates easy tracking and efficiency, while the additional length improves speed and stability. Combine the added 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 mid-size Prospector 16 would still be considered the more versatile choice due to its balance of efficiency and maneuverability.
Scott Canoes Prospector 17 is the pack horse in Scott’s Prospector family making it perfect for weekend adventures and extended trips. Great for flat-water lakes but its more efficient design allows it to handle bigger waters and adverse conditions with ease. This canoe will never let you down!
The capacity Scott Canoes Prospector 17 offers plenty of room for camping gear and the family, while the user-friendliness makes it a winner with new paddlers. What’s more, experienced paddlers will love its ability in big water!
