Venture Canoes Prospector 165

The traditional style Venture Prospector 165 excels on tandem wilderness expeditions or whitewater trips and can carry up to three people for family days out.

A wide beam, classic symmetrical hull and soft tumblehome mean the Venture Prospector 165 inspires confidence, whilst the familiar recurved bow and high freeboard keep you dry through features and prevent swamping.

The historical Prospector designs that this model draws inspiration from were true workhorses, so you can load the Venture Prospector 165 up for tandem expeditions or carry a third paddler (with the addition of an optional third seat) and still enjoy the supreme edging performance that gives pleasingly simple turns on both moving and flat water; loading the boat up also improves tracking and reduces windage.

CoreLite Construction

CoreLite is a three layer construction that gives an exceptional Weight-to-Rigidity ratio, taking advantage of the fact that only the outer layers of the material are required to bear compressive and tensile forces by using a lighter, rigid foam inner layer; this foam core has the added benefit of giving the whole canoe enough inherent buoyancy to keep it at the waterline in the event of swamping. The HDPE used for the outer layers is both highly durable and readily repairable.
