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.
A CoreLite X Prospector 165 is just what your adventure needs; you get all the same benefits as standard CoreLite, as well as an impressively stiff hull that cuts beautifully through water, a weight reduction of approximately 4kg which makes portages and loading it back onto the car at the end of a long trip a breeze, and the increased durability means it’ll carry generation after generation on the trip of a lifetime.
