Nova Craft Canoe has been making canoes since 1970 when the company started producing a limited range of fiberglass canoes. Initially, the company operated from a garage near London, Ontario.
Over the years, Nova Craft Canoe’s reputation for quality designs and workmanship spread, and the company responded to requests from customers for more material options and model choices. Today Nova Craft Canoe still builds canoes with fiberglass but customers can also choose from materials such as aramid, carbon fibre, basalt/ innegra, and super-linear polyethylene.
You can view the full line of canoes on the company’s website and the canoes can be purchased from a network of dealers in Canada, the United States, and some countries in Europe.
