Even though it started out humbly as a hobby, the Sanborn Canoe Company is now one of the most respected manufacturers of outdoor gear. The Prospector Canoe is one of its most impressive products, and the great news is that it has finally made it to official production. It boasts an incredible amount of attention to detail and a mix of modern and traditional materials.
These include fiberglass, carbon fiber, Kevlar, cherry hardwood, and cherry ribs, all blending nicely to create a sturdy, light and incredibly gorgeous canoe. The Prospector measures 16 feet in length, and it is being made in the United States for those of you who enjoy backcountry canoe camping.
The price tag is $3,825, which is not bad at all considering the outstanding craftsmanship and material quality.
