Canoes
Whitewater Series



Moisie 16′ 6″

One of the most outstanding wild rivers in Canada is the namesake for Nova Craft’s new expedition canoe, the Moisie. It’s an incredible tripping canoe for modern day explorers who want to tackle whitewater with big waves and deep holes. The symmetrical shape, deep hull, large volume ends and 4” of rocker makes for lots of maneuverability and a dry ride in the big stuff.

At 34” wide the Moisie still has enough speed on the flat sections to get you to the next set of rapids with ease.The Moisie has plenty of carrying capacity for extended river expeditions. Surfing, side slipping and ferrying in and out of rapids are all handled with ease. Whether you’re just out to enjoy a day of play in whitewater or you’re about to head out on a month long expedition, the Moisie is an amazing canoe that can make even a newcomer to paddling look like an expert.

Made in Canada.

We love the rocker on this boat – the water-shedding lines of the Moisie are visually appealing and slice through whitewater with ease, granting us confidence in manoeuvrability on technical runs.

Our go-to whitewater boat, we use the Moisie on lengthy river expeditions and for playboating. We’ve deftly run solid CIII’s with over 550lbs. of man and gear aboard and the Moisie handled it impeccably. We love the rocker on this boat – the water shredding lines are sharp and effective!

Those shape lines are visually appealing and slice through whitewater with ease, granting us confidence in manoeuvrability on technical runs. Constructed of lightweight yet durable TuffStuff Expedition layup, it’s not a pain to portage when the river turns too nasty. Ours is outfitted with thigh straps, knee pads and skid plates.
