Our most popular tripping canoe, the La Ronge Prospector 16 fits the need of most trippers, looking for an efficient yet stable craft. Ideal for week long trips, moderate rocker provides good maneuverability in whitewater yet tracks well on the large lake. Slightly deeper then the average Prospector allows for a dry ride under heavy load.
Ultimate Gunnel System
Infused inner carbon gunnel with ash outer creating the stiffest, most functional and elegant gunnel system available.
No exposed hardware through the gunnel, creating clean lines and no bumping on racks.
Integrated Seat Mounts
Our seat mounts are integral to the boat. No post glue, rivets or fasteners used here, creating a fail-proof mount.
Deep Dish Yoke
Functional and beautiful. Our yokes are easy on the shoulder and make the boat pop!

Ultra Kevlar vs Expedition
Function meets design with our Ultra Kevlar canoes. This build type is the lightest of our prospector series. Designed to provide the least carrying weight without sacrificing quality or durability.
Our Prospector Expedition canoes are the toughest built canoes. Designed and built for those looking to explore the rough backcountry with the most durability offered from our series of prospector canoes.
The materials are laid down dry into the mold allowing us to strategically place the materials where is will they will supply maximum benefit and not where they will only add more weight. Each Kisseynew hull has over 20 individual pieces of material and are pre-cut prior to mold placement.
Infusion allows for maximum compaction, void free laminate with consistent, repeatable resin to cloth ratio, resulting in the best strength to weight ratio possible.
No Gel Coat
Traditional gel coat adds approximately 10 lbs to the final weight of a canoe without adding any structural benefit. We replace the gelcoat with layers of abrasive resistant S-glass and coat the exterior with a polyurethane finish, providing a stronger, tougher, easy to repair finish.
If you do scratch the bottom up on your canoe the original finish is easily restored by re-coating it with a couple coats of urathane.
We use epoxy resin in our carbon/kevlar laminates. In order to get the maximum benefit from aerospace materials you need to use a resin system that matches the properties of the materials.
Epoxy is complex to infuse and costs a lot more then the other resins but the final results are worth it.
Kisseynew canoes are built using the latest in aerospace processes and materials. Our unique build process allows us to build a fully functional canoe that is both light and strong.
Engineered Balanced Laminate
The core thickness should be engineered to match the laminate. Thick cores traditionally found in recreational canoes, make for a stiff brittle boat, which is good for racing craft but not what you want for recreational canoes. Our laminates seek to minimize core thickness or eliminate them all together.
The result is a hull that is stiff enough for recreational use but still has resilience to flex when required.
