The Langford Prospector’s shallow draft and obvious length (over 17 feet), make this canoe both extremely stable very quick, efficiently hauling large loads at a unbelievable pace. The original model was used by guides, ferrying “sportsman” to their destinations. The design allowed for the canoe even when heavily laden, to easily glide up and down shallow rivers and safely move over larger lakes. The artful blend of varying hues of Red Cedar planking, juxtaposed against the white cedar ribs, creates a striking visual impression further reinforced by the canoes size. The planked, sister, and structural ribbed interior lends a unrivalled feeling of substance and sturdiness. The 17.3’s large efficient hull gave rise to the Langford Prospector 17.4 one of our most popular performance tripping designs. The 17.3 Langford Prospector is quite literally the finest cottage canoe money can buy, safely plying the waters with the entire family, and if the need arises one can put it to work filling it’s historical role as a heavy duty hauler.
