Enigma Prospector 16


The Enigma Prospector 16 is one of the most versatile canoes on the market.  This canoe is suited for those long days paddling on rivers loaded with heavy camping and expedition equipment, or simply as a great option for those looking for a stable tandem canoe that all levels of paddler will appreciate.  

The Enigma Prospector 16 is great on a variety of different water types. With forgiving lines and moderate rocker, the Prospector is at home cruising down slow-moving rivers as it is tackling white water or day trips on local canals or lakes. The shallow arch hull will ensure an incredibly stable ride and offers a great secondary stability ensuring that you and your equipment stay dry.

The Prospector 16 still has a moderate rocker which will make this canoe nimble and dynamic enough to take on small rapids and respond efficiently weather paddling solo or tandem.

For the strongest construction, Enigma uses triple later plastic. The outer and inner layers are High density plastic and the middle layer is a foam core. These canoes are extremely strong; amongst the strongest anywhere, providing all-round paddlers with the perfect choice for moving water and general recreational use.

We offer a delivery service for the Enigma Prospector 16 throughout the UK & Ireland to home and work addresses.

Delivery times are estimates based on years of experience; we do not offer a guaranteed timed delivery service. Our overnight service works well for the core more densely populated areas of the UK for Clothing and Equipment orders. However more remote less densely populated areas will not be covered by a next day service.

Delivery of canoes and kayaks is classed as “ugly freight” because mechanical handling and automatic parcel processing cannot be used; therefore a delivery time of 3-5 working days is more realistic. For remote location that delivery time will be dependent on the local courier’s ability to onward ship the goods. Not all areas of the UK are serviced by vehicles that can handle canoes and kayaks. Online orders can be tracked online using the courier’s website – tracking details will be provided. We make every effort to deliver goods within the estimated time scales.

The delivery price will be shown in the shopping basket.
